This lecture series was introduced in our 50th Anniversary year in honour of the School’s founding director, Professor Grigor McClelland. During his twelve years as Director and Professor of Business Administration, Grigor shaped management and education for the next generation. He was a strong advocate of the principle that business cannot be divorced from society and that managers should be ethical and socially responsible.
