Professor Mark Weaver to study DBA at Grenoble Ecole de Management

Sheridan Faculty of Business Professor and Banking and Wealth Management Coordinator, Mark Weaver will study for his doctorate (DBA) in Finance at Grenoble Ecole de Management in France.

Grenoble Ecole de Management is one of the few business schools (1% of schools worldwide) to possess the three accreditations that distinguish the leading international business schools: EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System), AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and AMBA (The Association of MBAs)

According to the Grenoble Ecole de Management website – the principal goal of this program is to educate scholars who will become faculty members in leading international business schools or universities.  It is focused on quality with a maximum three students recruited per year, per concentration, and ensures the research production of students through high-quality supervision and training.  It is a 4 to 5-year program: the first two years consist of courses, seminars plus joint research projects with faculty members and ends with a comprehensive examination. The remaining 2 or 3 years are devoted to dissertation work.

Weaver will begin intensive blocks of course work beginning November21 in France.

“It feels like a dream to be afforded this opportunity to integrate my previous retail and capital market exposure in Canada and China with a rigorous academic and professional European experience,” said Weaver.

Four concentrations are proposed to prospective students: Marketing,  Organizational Theory and Human Resources Management, Strategy and Management of Innovation and Finance.

“Grenoble Ecole de Management is one of the premier business schools in France, holding all three of the leading international business school accreditations, EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA. This is a significant achievement and I congratulate Mark on his dedication to continuing to further his expertise within his discipline”, said Bill Holmes, Dean, Sheridan Faculty of Business.
