Who is making the decisions?

Providing the information 

All members of LMP staff, faculty, and learners will be asked to contribute in various ways. 

We are also starting our External Review process, which includes the development of a self-study report, due to be submitted to the university in September 2021. This will involve gathering a large amount of data about our research activity, curricula, faculty, etc, and will feed into the decision-making processes. 

Gathering and sorting the information 

We are working with a consultancy firm, The Potential Group, which is helping us to gather information and guide the process.  

Making the decisions 

The process is led by Dr. Rita Kandel, Department Chair, and Nelson Cabral, Business Administration Manager.
