Grad Gift
Hi HBAs,
         We recently sent out a survey with the choices for our grad gift. We
received 60 responses and appreciate the input we gathered. However, we would
like to receive some additional feedback from you. For those of you who don’t
know, the Graduating Class Gift Program is a student-led initiative that began in
2001 as a way for students to leave a lasting legacy at Ivey and give something back
to the School and future HBAs. It started as a student aid scholarship endowment
awarded by each class, and has evolved to funding many projects, including
furniture, plasma screen televisions, conferencing equipment, room upgrades and
         Option 1: Our results indicated that many of you would be willing to
contribute to the new building. There have been many ideas that will enhance the
new building. However, because the interior of the building is in its planning stages,
Ivey cannot guarantee that a specific idea, such as a games room, will be
implemented. Instead, Ivey would create a holding account for any money collected
in the Grad Gift Campaign. Once the building was in its final stages, the School
would work with our class to determine the best use of the funds.
         Option 2: Contribute the funds to a scholarship opportunity for future
students. This scholarship could be for casebooks, or it could be added to the
current HBA IPO Award Endowment.
         Option 3: Fund the Ivey Ring Ceremony. This would support all costs of a
future Ring Ceremony. Our class would be recognized at the event and, as alumni,
we would have the opportunity to attend the event as volunteers/witnesses.
 We would love your feedback or opinions! Please email Ashley Kennedy

About the course
Norway is abundantly endowed with natural resources and the utilization of its
resource base has strongly influenced the industrial structure, foreign trade,
economic development and welfare of the country. The country has not suffered
many of the curses that plague other resource-rich countries, such as corruption or
the “Dutch disease”. Norway has consistently been ranked by the UN as the best
country in the world to live in, and the World Economic Forum has ranked Norway
as one of the top 20 most competitive countries globally.

The summer course will undertake an economic analysis and evaluation of the
resource management and policy regimes developed by a natural resource-rich
country like Norway. Students from around the world will be brought together to
find out more about how the world’s third largest oil exporter avoided the resource

Cooperation with the business community - excursions
The summer course will be delivered by NHH faculty along with guest lecturers
from other academic institutions and the business community. The programme has
been developed and organised in partnership with a range of companies active in
the industries examined in the course, and company visits and case studies form a
major part of the course schedule.

The NHH Graduate Summer School has been evaluated by former students taking
the course, and this feedback has all over been very positive.

Splash Bash
Splash Bash in an event held annually in London attended by 1000-1300 people! It
all started in London over 20 years ago and the party is now held at schools across
Canada and the United States each year. The way the party works is as follows:
along with a ticket, people attending the event receive a 'Splash Bash' t-shirt, which
is worn on the night of the party. At the event, thousands of bottles of paint and
water are brought out generating wild mayhem involving people soaking one
another. Shirts are kept by most party-goers as as a souvenir and memento from the

This year, Splash Bash will take place at the Music Hall Entertainment Complex (185
Queens Ave.) on March 20th. Always wanting to provide students with fun and
unique events outside of the classroom, the HBAA is supporting the event this year.
The VP of Events in each section will be selling shirts to the party. Since a lot of time,
effort and money goes into the party, tickets for the event will cost $20. However,
along with entry to the party, those who buy tickets will gain access to certain
promotions including 40% off breakfast at Smitty's, discounts at Side Street Salon,
and 50% off a tan at Tahiti Breeze or Tantrum!

This party is a night to remember and certainly one that you do not want to miss!
Tickets/T-shirts will go on sale Tuesday!
