Share your voice at the Asper Town Hall Meeting

October 8, 2019 — 

Asper undergraduate students are invited to a Student Town Hall Meeting on Monday, October 21, from 4-5 p.m. in 343 Drake, where the proposed Strategic Plan for the Asper School of Business will be presented. Here, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide your insights on where you would like the faculty to be in the future. This plan will guide the faculty’s direction from 2020-24.

Participating in town hall style forums are valuable for multiple reasons. As an Asper student, this plan will affect your education and sharing your opinion is one way you can ensure you are satisfied with the direction the school is going. Having the proposed Strategic Plan explained in real time helps students better understand the plan itself, and the changes it may make. Listening to what others have to say is also important to help form an opinion on the trajectory of the plan.

“The Town Hall Meetings are a great opportunity for our students to provide feedback on the vision and future of the Asper School of Business. We value our students’ opinions and hope they share their voice,” says Gady Jacoby, Dean and CPA Manitoba Chair in Business Leadership, Asper School of Business.

Recent MBA graduate Bhaumik Gandhi [MBA/2019] attended the MBA Town Hall sessions during his time as an MBA student and said that he valued the information he gained at the meetings, “The town hall sessions helped me to get to know what the Asper School of Business was planning for the future, I also got to ask critical questions and add my insights.”

Following the October 21 Student Town Hall, the Asper School of Business will also be holding an MSc/PhD Town Hall on October 23 and an MBA/MFin Town Hall on October 31. Please refer to program specific emails and social media updates for additional information on meeting times and locations.
