About Haskayne School of Business

The Haskayne School of Business was founded at the University of Calgary in 1967, and was named in honour of Richard F. Haskayne, OC, AOE, FCA in 2002. The business school has approximately 3,500 full- and part-time students enrolled in bachelor's, master's, doctorate, and executive education programs, and stays connected with its nearly 23,000 alumni in over 80 countries worldwide.


The vision of the Haskayne School of Business is to be an internationally recognized centre of excellence for business education, research, and community outreach, with a special emphasis on the distinct elements that define Calgary and Alberta: energy, entrepreneurship, and ethical leadership.

The School is closely linked to the global resource-based industries headquartered in western Canada and has played a pioneering role in integrating the management of environmental and social issues into curriculum. It is home to major research centres devoted to educating leaders and advancing business practices in leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation, real estate and energy.


The Haskayne School of Business offers a full range of degree programs including: Bachelor of Commerce; Master of Business Administration (MBA); Executive MBA; Global Energy Executive MBA; PhD in Management; an interdisciplinary Master of Science degree in Sustainable Energy Development; and a full range of open and customized Executive Education programs.


The Haskayne School of Business has two locations in Calgary, Alberta, Canada: one on the main University of Calgary campus and the other in the downtown business district.

Calgary is a diverse community rich in arts, culture, and entertainment, with an enthusiastic business culture that grants unprecedented access to Haskayne students as they prepare for and launch their careers. One example of this is the successful Haskayne Mentorship program, sponsored by Enbridge Inc., which matches MBA students with a business executive for an 8-month relationship and a series of programs and events that connects students with the local community. 

Students, faculty, and staff at the Haskayne School of Business also enjoy close proximity to the international resort destinations of Banff and Lake Louise, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, where popular activities include skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, and hiking.
