James Cleland, EMBA'10 I had reached a point where I needed to further develop my business skills in order to advance my career, and needed a program that fit my busy life. The flexibility of the Alberta Haskayne Executive MBA allowed me to learn while continuing to work full-time and build my professional network in Calgary. Completing my Executive MBA was a lot of hard work, but was arguably the best career decision I’ve ever made.

Matko Papic, EMBA'11

Matko Papic, EMBA'11 I was looking for a way to broaden my understanding of different aspects of business in order to be more effective in my current role, but also have the foundation to pursue broader opportunities. I found that, when it comes to building my career, it is very difficult to gain practical experience in all aspects of a business. The Alberta Haskayne Executive MBA was a great way to broaden my skills while still actively building my career.

Rachel Moore, EMBA'15

Rachel Moore, EMBA'15 The most compelling argument for me to come to Haskayne for my education was the local learning community created within the Alberta Haskayne Executive MBA program. The ongoing, face to face interaction with faculty and classmates was instrumental in the development of my skills and knowledge. The EMBA network has been a great resource for me to draw upon, both in and outside of class.
