He acknowledged the hard work and dedication of many members of the faculty, staff and coaching teams who make the students’ outstanding performance possible.

He then congratulated Mahesh Sharma from the Department of Decision Sciences and Management Information Systems for being named a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland, and presented him with a framed confirmation certificate from the society.
The dean also used the occasion to thank the faculty and staff for being so welcoming since his arrival at Concordia last summer and for helping to make the transition into his new role a smooth one.
