Remembering Dr. Ali Dastmalchian, Dean of the Beedie School of Business
Since the very sad and unexpected loss of our beloved Dean, we have been reflecting on how to pay tribute to his memory. We felt that one of the best ways to articulate Ali's vision and hopes for SFU Beedie, and his contribution to our community, is through a compilation of interviews and presentations we enjoyed with him. Here is Ali in his own words.
