Reception For Class of 2014

We had a good reception for the incoming students on May 2, 2010. Approximately 40 alumni showed up along with parents of the admittees and current Princeton students.

Our speaker, Professor Bass, did a terrific job and received rave reviews for all who attended.

Thanks to everyone who showed up and we hope to see those who couldn't make it at the next event!

Princton Alumni Association of Canada joins IUCT

On Wednesday April 28, 2010, the Princeton Alumni Association of Canada along with several other Toronto-area alumni associations of non-Canadian universities officially signed the articles of the International University Clubs of Toronto.

The idea of the group is to set out a framework for the hosting of joint events and we hope will lead to more events that no one alumni club (due to their size) could organize on their own.

IMD Event @ National Club

The IMD Alumni Club of Canada has invited Princeton Alumni to the following event:


Winning at Innovation through Cultural Diversity

Canadian companies have a wealth of cultural diversity – whether they’re doing business just in Canada or around the world. But are you using this “free” resource to achieve competitive advantage? Cultural diversity is a key ingredient for innovation. In this session, we’ll identify how to unlock its potential and use cultural diversity for higher performance through innovation.

IMD professor Martha Maznevski will lead this interactive session and will discuss her latest research and work in the field. The event is graciously sponsored by the Consulate General of Switzerland (Toronto) and organized by IMD and the IMD Alumni Club of Canada (Toronto).

Martha Maznevski (Canadian, PhD Ivey Business School, Program Director of IMD’s MBA program) runs programs spanning a broad range of organisational behaviour topics, including teams and leadership in global and virtual (distance) contexts, diversity and inclusiveness, and the relationship between organisational and national cultures. She has served as advisor to public and private organisations in North America, Europe and Asia on issues of managing people globally.

Please see http://www.imd.ch/about/facultystaff/maznevski.cfm for additional details.
