(February 10, 2000, Gazette)

Dr. Glenn Rowe has recently been appointed associate dean, Graduate Programs and Research for the Faculty of Business Administration. Dr. Rowe has a long history with the Faculty of Business as an alumnus of Memorial’s undergraduate and graduate business programs. He completed his doctorate at Texas A&M University and specializes in strategic leadership and management. Also a past director of the Centre for Management Development, Dr. Rowe has coached Memorial’s national and international champion MBA case competition teams.

Memorial’s Faculty of Business Administration students are upholding their record of excellence at national business case competitions. Just recently undergraduate students Jennifer Robbins and Nadine Hunt placed second in the marketing category at the 22nd annual Queen’s University’s Intercollegiate Business Case Competition (ICBC) in Kingston, Ontario. The team was coached by Dr. Asmo Palasvirta. MBA students Nadia Ducey, Stephen Hiscock, Shelley King, Kerri-Lynn Parsons, Chad Saunders, and Barbara Strickland placed third in the 14th annual MT&T Dalhousie International Business Case Competition. The team was coached by Ms. Peggy Coady. Kerri-Lynn Parsons was named to the Honour Roll of Champions.

The biography of Harriet Brooks, Canada’s woman pioneer in the field of radioactivity, has just been published in a Japanese edition. Co-authors Marlene and Dr. Geoff Rayner-Canham, Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, have written widely on the history of women in science. As few people realize, the Japanese version reads from back to front (from the western perspective). The body of the book is written in the traditional vertical style while the notes are written in the modern horizontal format. At the same time, Geoff Rayner-Canham’s successful text Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry has been published in Korean. Indicative of the world-wide appeal of this text, the publisher, W. H. Freeman of New York, is negotiating with overseas publishers for Spanish and German translators.
