Under Dr. McLaughlin’s direction, the TME program will launch a new graduate level course this fall entitled Leadership in an Era of Deep Change, equipping students with leadership skills to keep pace with ever-evolving innovations in the fields of commerce, engineering and environmental management. Dr. Mclaughlin will co-teach the course with TME chair Dr. Dhirendra Shukla.

Dr. McLaughlin was instrumental in propelling innovation and research both at UNB and in the province of New Brunswick during his term as president and vice-chancellor. He has authored and co-authored more than two hundred publications, co-founder of two companies, and has served as chair and member on numerous boards locally and further afield.

The J. Herbert Smith Centre for Technology Management & Entrepreneurship is dedicated to cultivating new ideas, creative thinking and entrepreneurship in the ever-changing world of technology. The Centre offers the only diploma program of its kind in Atlantic Canada, with a focus on business management, entrepreneurship and communications skills geared specifically towards the technology industry.
