Business school finds it tough competing for professors


Since the beginning of 1999, the School of Business has hired five professors, but acting dean Willi Wiesner tells National Post reporter Sean Silcoff in Saturday's paper “that doesn't even begin to make a dent in the number we need.”

Weisner says the school needs at least 15 more professors “just to make people feel we're sort of on top of things.”

Enrolment at the school has grown by about 25 per cent in the past 10 years and is expected to grow that much in the next two, but the school is finding it difficult to attract and keep professors, who can expect to earn more at U.S. business schools.(National Post, Aug. 12, 2000)
