In addition to the practical orientation of the Centre for Executive Leadership, the Centre is decorated with mementos from Telfer Executive MBA trip destinations. Since the Program’s establishment in 1992, each graduating class has returned from their International Consulting Trip with a gift for the Centre. As you walk through our facilities, you will see a didgeridoo from Australia, a mother-of-pearl jewelry box from the Republic of South Korea, marble from Italy, crystal from Ireland, and other cultural gems.

Lastly, the CEL is located in the World Exchange Plaza, a leader in environmentally-friendly practices. Read their ForeverGreen Report Card to learn more about the initiatives in place at our facility.
