Message from the dean

Dr. Michel Rod

I am thrilled to be here as the new Dean in the Faculty of Business. I see the faculty of business’ mission as providing an inspiring and inclusive environment for learning, discovery, and service through engagement.

The student-focused culture, along with an emphasis on real-world problem-solving, engagement with the community and its various stakeholder groups and how the Saint John campus has embraced interdisciplinary approaches to both established and new, innovative programs attracted me from the get-go.

In my role, I am of the view that leadership isn’t based on an individual possessing specific leadership traits, but that it reflects the ability to bring out the best in one’s people/teams and to create an environment where people can ‘lead’ in their own individual ways.

Again, I’m thrilled to be here, and I look forward to many years of supporting UNB Saint John business students, staff and faculty in our collective efforts to build a better city, province and extended global community.
