Dean, Goodman School of Business, Brock University

Dr. Gaudes provides leadership as Dean of the Goodman School of Business to 3800 students and 200 staff. He has led in developing programs and partnerships for undergraduate and graduate students with world-leading business schools. He also led in forming the only Canadian business school partnership with United Nations for a paid co-op internship placement of Goodman students at UN agencies worldwide.

His research interest lies in virtual methods of collaboration, niche strategies, and crisis management. His work on virtual collaboration has led to creating teleworking opportunities for vulnerable populations and people with disabilities in regions of Central and South America. The work has contributed to telework declarations signed by governments in Peru, Costa Rica, and Colombia. He has participated on numerous international panels on virtual collaboration and the future of work, including a joint meeting of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Dr. Gaudes has taught courses at the graduate and undergraduate level in management and entrepreneurship, in Canada and in Egypt, Ukraine, Trinidad and France. He has also developed and delivered online courses and curriculum as an adjunct for Michigan State University’s Virtual University.
