Areas of Expertise

A business school's best impact can't always be measured with numbers. The stories of our students, alumni and researchers and the ways they have influenced and affected communities, businesses and the economy: these are the impacts we are most proud of.

But we also appreciate the importance of measuring and quantifying aspects of our work. In 2016, we released Creating an Impact with Purpose, a report that both quantified our effect on the region in terms of parameters like the economic, reputational, educational and social.

Since then, reflecting the practices of many businesses, we have focused efforts on measuring, tracking and analyzing the impact of our work, our people and our research. In 2018, we released a report describing the impact of our Co-operative Management Education group.
