Globalisation and Education for the Common Good: A Path to Sustainability, Well-being and Happiness

By Kamran Mofid, Adjunct Professor, Dalhousie School of Business,  Dalhousie University, Canada

Public Lecture Presented at School of Business Administration Dalhousie University Wednesday 3 November 2010

Greetings to you all,

'Believe me I cannot find words adequate enough to tell you how happy I am to be here in Canada once again and especially in my new capacity: Adjunct Professor at one of the oldest and most respected universities, namely, Dalhousie. It is always a very special joy for me to return to Canada. It is to Canada that my wife and I first came all those years ago in the 1970s. It was in Canada that I got my first two degrees in economics. I never forget the joyous day in 1980 that my wife and I became naturalised Canadian Citizens. It is to Canada that many my close relatives came to after the Revolution in Iran. It is in Canada that all have found happiness, joy, success and well-being. To Canada, I own great thanks.

For the opportunity to be here today, I am indebted To the Dean of the Faculty of Management, Prof. Peggy Cunningham. I salute her wisdom and vision and I commend her great work to make the business education to be for the common good. I wish also to thank Prof. Greg Hebb, Director of the Centre for International Business Studies at Dalhousie for all his support and friendship. I thank all my colleagues and students at Dalhousie Business School for all they do, ensuring that the Business Education at Dalhousie is a world leader in values-based education.'...Continue to read
