Toronto business schools have seen some exciting news this week, and we’ve collected some of the highlights.

DeGroote Professor Talks Tariffs on

CTV recently interviewed Marvin Ryder, assistant professor at McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Business, regarding U.S. President Donald Trump’s proposal to place tariffs on aluminum and steel. Ryder felt it was possible Canada may not be subject to these tariffs, as Trump seems more focused on Russia and China. Since this interview, Trump has indicated that the tariffs will not apply to Canada and Mexico right away. However, if Trump eventually opts to place tariffs on Canadian products, Ryder suggests the proper course of action is to place similar tariffs on American goods. Ryder has been nominated for the McMaster Student Union Teaching Award 11 times, and published a collection of case studies titled, Marketing Insights: Contemporary Canadian Cases.

Schulich Alumn Featured in

APEX published an article on March 6, in which they profiled women in powerful positions in the aviation industry, and sought advice from these women about increasing the presence of females in the field. One of the women profiled was Catherine Brown, who received her MBA from York University’s Schulich School of Business. Brown is now the head of marketing at Bluebook Aviation Systems, a company that distributes in-flight entertainment systems. When asked how gender gaps in the industry will affect future generations, Brown said, “Until unconscious biases about gender change in both men and women, progress toward real equality will be tough, no matter how strong the push is for it in any single industry.”
