DeGroote's ambitious plan to rethink business education and reimagine business impact is grounded in our commitment to radically transform business and society. Our students will be the agents of transformation in the years ahead, disrupting how we do business and significantly expanding DeGroote's contributions to Canadian society.
This is impact by design
and it's the future of DeGroote.
Our students will learn from and with other students and faculty across the University, as well as partners in the community.
Through discovery-based learning projects, they'll actively engage in real-world business challenges in the McLean Centre's interconnected, networked, and curated learning "hubs" or "labs". Each will be designed for interactive, interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Activities in these hubs will replace some classroom hours, so that core content is augmented with a learning-by-doing approach.
By 2023 we'll welcome students into the new McLean Centre for Collaborative Discovery. The nine-storey McLean Centre will help us transform old-style pedagogy and traditional curricula into a flexible, immersive, tailored learning journey.
“It isn't just tactical business knowledge that drives a successful business. Success
integrating knowledge, skills and experience from other fields.”
