The Odette School of Business Mission, Vision, and Strategic Plan

As part of organizational renewal, the members of the Odette School of Business have been engaged in sharpening the purpose and effects of our activities. In support, our mission and vision have been revised, and, from them, key initiatives set out in the form of a strategic plan. Our mission, vision, and strategic plan reflect input from key stakeholders both internal and external to OSB, such as students, faculty, and staff, as well as alumni and the business community. The key aspects of Odette’s main guiding documents reinforce a balanced approach to our research and pedagogy, and to our regional and international activities. We are seeking a particular, focused impact that is integrated across our mission, vision, and plan
