The Haskayne Peer Network is a new initiative on the part of CCAL and the Haskayne Students Association (HSA) that brings together senior and first-year students. This program is a foundational part of the Haskayne Student Experience.
Peer mentors can earn co-curricular record credit by participating in a comprehensive preparation program and serving as a peer mentor. The program is supported by Peer Network events held in the Nu West Commons.
Contact Frances Donohue for further details about the Peer Network and for information on becoming a peer mentor or mentee.
Becoming a mentor is about helping the next generation of business professionals prepare for the transition from university to the business world. At the same time, you will develop your own skills to help you become a better manager and leader.
As a Haskayne mentor, you will have access to mentor-only events, networking seminars, and other Haskayne School of Business functions.
A successful mentorship relationship is dependent on the amount of time and effort that a mentor and mentee put in to creating a great experience. Mentors are expected to meet with their mentees at least six times throughout the academic year (September – April). Of course this is only a minimum requirement; we encourage additional touch-ins with your mentees. Your mentorship meetings can include:
We hope to partner students with professionals who can offer advice and guidance as our students prepare to transition from university to the business world. We seek mentors who hold an undergraduate degree and who have been working professionally for at least five years.
Leaders come in all shapes, sizes and attitudes, The Leading Edge builds and celebrates talented Calgary leaders.
By connecting Calgary leaders with our researchers, faculty and instructors, CCAL creates opportunities inside and outside the classroom for Calgary business to be a part of the education of our future leaders.
Leading Edge experiences can include (and are not limited to):
New this year, this pilot project pairs students with not-for-profit organizations. The students, who should be at least third-year accounting majors are expected to spend between four and eight hours per month supporting accounting activities for the organization. To maximize the learning opportunity for students in this unique role, students will have access to a mentor who is a member of the not-for-profit organization’s board of directors as well as a mentor outside the board that provides group mentoring to multiple accounting student volunteers. The board of directors may also consider inviting the student to at least one board meeting per year. For more information about this program, please contact CCAL Projects Coordinator Jeff Millar at email@example.com.
The Lunch with Leaders program is designed to give Haskayne School of Business students an opportunity to make meaningful connections with established business leaders linking a member of the business community with a group of three to five students over a lunch. The one-hour conversation provides opportunity for a business leader to lead a conversation about key topics, open the discussion to questions from students, or a combination of both.
These lunches can be hosted by an organization downtown, in which case students will travel to participate in the lunch, or at the Haskayne School of Business. The program is provided in partnership with Haskayne’s Commerce Undergraduate Society (CUS).
If you are interested in joining the program and staying up-to-date on upcoming lunch opportunities, please complete a Student Application Form online here or learn more about this program by contacting CCAL Program Advisor Natalie Valle at firstname.lastname@example.org or stopping by the CCAL offices in Scurfield Hall (SH 223 and 233).
