The Department of Economics has a new name. The University of Guelph Senate voted Monday to change the name to the Department of Economics and Finance. Chair John Livernois says the name change more accurately reflects the teaching and research that are done in the Department. It’s also important for the public profile of the College of Management and Economics (CME), he says. CME houses business-related programs, and finance is one of the major fields of study at any business school.
Branding and packaging expert Tim Dewhirst, a faculty member in the Department of Marketing and Consumer Studies, discusses how the use of colour on election signs is used to build political brands and win votes. His comments can be found in the Guelph Mercury.
