At Telfer, a Better Canada is our life's work. Our students are fully immersed in a learning experience that goes beyond the classroom and takes them out into the practical world, where they benefit from working with partners to make a real impact in their world. This exposure prepares our students to become a new generation of leaders ready to apply their learning to the world around them. Our faculty devotes themselves to conducting leading-edge research that produces the insights and ideas that we use to shape our unique curriculum. Our staff is committed to providing the support that makes all this important work possible, united by a shared belief that better business means a better Canada, and that a better Canada means a better world. Our Vision: A greener, healthier, happier, wealthier Canada for all. Our Mission: To empower current and future societal leaders with the knowledge and tools to influence smarter decisions about policy and practice to create a better Canada. Four Areas of Strategic Impact (ASIs): GLOBALIZATION, GOVERNANCE, AND SUSTAINABILITY; HEALTH SYSTEMS INNOVATION AND MANAGEMENT; THRIVING ORGANIZATIONS AND SOCIETIES; ENTREPRENEURSHIP, INNOVATION, AND STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT. The establishment of our research excellence around these four interdisciplinary areas will position our faculty members as research leaders in their respective fields of expertise. These four groups will also leverage their existing research strengths to discover knowledge that can support organizations in their efforts to embrace digital transformations and implement equity, diversity, and inclusion strategies.
