Manitoba's Premier Business Network

Throughout the year, the Associates hold private, intimate information luncheons for new and potential members. If you would like more information, please email AnnaMaria Toppazzini, CEO of the Business School Foundation. We will be setting new dates for luncheons through-out the year.


The Associates are senior-level executives and leaders who share the Asper School of Business' commitment to excellence in management education and represent a spectrum of industries and backgrounds. Over the past 35 years, the School has evolved to meet the needs of the local and national business community with the help of the Associates through their advisement, philanthropic contribution, mentoring, and many other types of involvement.
