Lazaridis MBA alumni honour Professor Hugh Munro with scholarship

August 15, 2013

As part of their 10-year reunion, Lazaridis MBA Toronto alumni endowed a scholarship in honour of Hugh Munro, professor of marketing and director of Laurier’s MBA program.

The reunion of the ’03 and ’04 alumni and presentation of the new scholarship took place June 26 at Torys LLP in Toronto.

The scholarship, called the Hugh Munro MBA Award of Excellence, presented by Torys LLP, recognizes an outstanding Lazaridis MBA Toronto student who exhibits the values of inspiring lives of leadership and purpose through demonstrated leadership and community involvement.

This is a unique group of talented individuals who are doing just what we would like of our graduates & making a difference in their chosen fields, said Munro. I am deeply honoured and moved to be connected to them in this meaningful way.

Munro has inspired and engaged many students through his 33-year career at Laurier, encouraging them to pursue excellence throughout their program, their careers and in their communities.

The award reflects the leadership and values of Hugh Munro, said Mitch Frazer (MBA ’03), partner at Torys LLP. He’s enthusiastic, available, accessible, and helpful to students in choosing a career path. He was a mentor to many of us and, really, your ideal professor.

With a $10,000 contribution from Torys LLP, the alumni raised more than $27,000 to endow the scholarship.
