AU School of Business Wins Award

December 12, 2002

AU’s list of honours continues to grow: the School of Business has been recognized with an E-Business Leadership Award.

Awards were presented Nov. 28 in Edmonton to eight Alberta companies, communities and not-for-profit organizations that have demonstrated leadership and success in electronic commerce, learning, community support and other innovative ways of using the Internet.

Singled out in the Learning category was AU’s School of Business for its e-commerce/e-class initiative. Learning Minister Lyle Oberg presented AU’s award to School of Business chair David Annand and Houda Trabelsi, E-Commerce academic coordinator (shown above, with the award).

Awards spokesperson Bob Gardiner said that AU was chosen “because of the growth of the institution through distance learning and the expansion using web-based tools and solutions.” He said that the level of impact on the community was significant, particularly because of the number of students with access to the Internet and the number of programs available. He noted, “AU was selected due to the general good web design and high degree of functionality.”

Chair David Annand acknowledged the School of Business staff who worked hard to make the award possible.
