Meet our students: Whitney Keyes, MBA alumna

“There’s just a different way of absorbing information when you are both feet in, day in day out within your classes with your colleagues as part of your larger cohort, associated with such a fantastic university and then getting access to these amazing professors with such diverse backgrounds and impressive CVs. I continue to keep in touch with many of my colleagues; I continued to learn from them and have them to go to; I’ve reached out to my professors as well on various occasions. It’s definitely been fantastic icing on my career cake, so to speak.” Read more


In Memoriam: Dr. Gordon Kuhn

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of one of our founding professors at the University of Fredericton, Dr. Gordon Kuhn.

Gord was an intellect and gentle man who very much cared about the success of the University and his students.

He was generous with his time and had a talent for positioning challenging material in a way that comfortably elicited curiosity and inspired learning. In the early days of the school, Gord contributed to many aspects of the school including as a member of the Academic Board, and through course development and administrative support.
