One of the earmarks of a successful and respected business school is the continued involvement and support of its alumni. The Haskayne School of Business is no exception. We are grateful to the many Haskayne alumni who contribute their time, energy and expertise to the continued success of the School. 

As a successful Haskayne grad, we invite you to come back to the school and enrich current students' experience with your career insights and expertise. You can participate, organize, attend, advise, mentor, nominate, promote or donate – there are many ways to be involved! Click through to connect with each area, or email alumni@haskayne.ucalgary.ca to arrange a meeting with a representative from the Haskayne Alumni Office to discuss your unique interests.
