Dr. Wilfred Zerbe


Welcome to the Faculty of Business Administration!

We've come a long way since we opened our doors nearly 60 years ago, but the needs of businesses operating in a global environment change quickly. We must be flexible to adapt to those changes as well as visionary to ensure we continue to be a leader in developing tomorrow's business professionals.

As a faculty, we have recently adopted a values statement that I believe conveys our passion for education and our dedication to growth and renewal.

The core values for the Faculty of Business Administration are:

  • Integrity: being honest and ethical;
  • Collaboration: fostering positive relationships to achieve common goals;
  • A Spirit of Inquiry: cultivating a climate of intellectual curiosity and protecting academic freedom;
  • Respect and Diversity: behaving professionally, treating people fairly, and remaining open to diverse perspectives; and
  • Excellence: achieving the highest possible quality in our teaching, research and service.

Our new values statement reflects fundamental beliefs that we hold to be true and which will help us continue to maintain our reputation for quality and leadership. It also holds us accountable to our students, staff, instructors and faculty members.

With this focus on growth, renewal and quality education, we will continue to produce the business leaders of tomorrow.
