Scotiabank MBA Aboriginal Initiative
Scotiabank Supports Aboriginal Graduate Business Education
On February 22, 2006, the University of Saskatchewan announced a $250,000 gift from Scotiabank that would be used to support graduate Aboriginal programming in the Edwards School of Business. This gift was given as part of the University of Saskatchewan's Thinking the World of our Future campaign - a highly successful campaign that has engaged our friends and supporters from across the country and, indeed, from around the world.
