UWinnipeg President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Lloyd Axworthy and Tony Catanese, Office Managing Partner for PwC were in attendance.

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) is investing in business education at The University of Winnipeg with a generous gift of $25,000 for the Faculty of Business and Economics. In recognition of PwC’s generosity, a room was re-named today at the Buhler Centre, home to the University’s Faculty of Business and Economics. The PwC Student Lounge, formerly identified as room 3BC21, is located on the Centre’s third floor, facing the Winnipeg Art Gallery and overlooking the facility’s rooftop patio.

“UWinnipeg is grateful for PwC’s generous gift, which is an investment in the University’s future and the revitalization of downtown Winnipeg,” said Dr. Axworthy. “It is also an investment in the promise of our business and economics leaders of tomorrow.”

The Faculty of Business and Economics at The University of Winnipeg breaks down barriers between traditional management disciplines and exposes students to a wider range of study than most business schools. The core curriculum provides a solid foundation upon which a richer, broader business education can find footing.  UWinnipeg’s Faculty of Business and Economics doesn’t just create business graduates, it develops business leaders who are capable of adapting to the ever changing needs of a modern world.
