My intent is to keep the learnings fresh and apply them both in the boardrooms where I serve as a director, and in my consulting practice.
The DEP course has brought home to me in spades the value of good teachers in one’s life and the profound difference they can make.
Thanks for the superb quality of teaching and instruction, and for the entire experience (the food, the organization, the facilities).
You are making a big difference both in the lives of your students and in the quality of boardroom decisions across this country.”

“When we looked for a university to deliver advanced management courses at our smelter in Trail, Simon Fraser was the most responsive. Four years down the line, our engineers discuss projects in business language, not only as technical issues. In-class projects have resulted in cost savings and analysis of new business opportunities which have more than paid for the courses. In addition, a graduate management program on site has enhanced our ability to recruit the best new engineers and retain those that we have....”
“SFU's Regional MBA in Industrial Management has allowed us to provide high-quality management education to our employees working at locations where university-level business training is not readily available. Additionally, the program of courses that has been offered through SFU has rounded out the education of a number of our staff with backgrounds in engineering and other technical fields. SFU's flexible and client-oriented approach has allowed us to tailor course work to specific business issues our employees face on the job. Overall, we consider this program, now in its seventh year, to be a tremendous success.”
