“Manitobans are inherently modest, but there is a quiet pride in the major discoveries and contributions that start here. These advances touch people and communities around the world.

Dr. James Blanchard, BSc Med/86, MD/86, MPH/90, PhD/97 (Johns Hopkins) Director, Centre for Global Public Health
“A large part of my career achievements can be credited to successful entrepreneurial endeavors. The idea that a formal structured university business education, including research support in entrepreneurship, could be offered to any business student who chose it, holds tremendous appeal to me.”
Stu Clark, BComm(Hons)/76 Supports the Chair in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship
