BMO Financial Group donates $2 million to School of Business
The Queen’s School of Business has received a $2 million gift from BMO Financial Group in support of the expansion of Goodes Hall, the home of the business school.
“We are extremely proud of our longstanding relationship with Queen’s and also our deep commitment to education,” said Eric Tripp, President of BMO Capital Markets and Queen’s BA (Hons) ’81. “Of the nearly $50 million in sponsorships and donations that BMO Financial Group delivers each year in Canada, close to one-third goes toward education. This includes support for highly regarded institutions like Queen’s, but also support for students in the form of scholarships.”
The 75,000 square-foot expansion will feature three new high-tech classrooms, breakout rooms, a student common area and multi-purpose room for conferences, guest speakers and recruiting events, as well as a support centre and office space for students.
“With more great teaching, research and learning opportunities, we can expand QSB’s global footprint and alumni network, and advance our goal to be one of the most innovative and influential business schools in Canada and the world,” said Queen’s School of Business Dean David Saunders. “We are very thankful for BMO’s continued support of QSB and our mission to develop outstanding leaders.”
In recognition of BMO’s support, the Goodes Hall Atrium has been named the BMO Financial Group Atrium.
