The purpose of the Michael Lee-Chin & Family gift is to support the Institute for Strategic Business Studies at the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University.
Through the generous gift to the University, three endowed funds result from the Michael Lee-Chin & Family gift:
The Chair and Professorships roles are to contribute significantly to the general body of knowledge on business strategy dealing with concepts such as business valuation, business excellence and growth.
In addition, more focused research will add significantly to our understanding of investment and portfolio management.
The Michael Lee-Chin & Family Professorships are intended to create a synergy between business theory and business practice. The approach here is to bring real life cases and examples to the classroom and work on projects that add value to the education and training the students receive in this program.
