Mathison Hall

Haskayne Capital Expansion Project

Mathison Hall

Elevate business education through a state-of-the-art building

The Haskayne School of Business is preparing tomorrow’s leaders for an unpredictable future. These problem solvers will be nimble and resourceful and ideally equipped to tackle the unforeseen challenges of a changing economy. We know change is coming rapidly – whether it is disruption from artificial intelligence, alternative energy technologies or new business models – and Haskayne students will be the critical thinkers with the practical skills to rise to the challenge.

At Haskayne, we deliver a future focused, world-class business education; it’s time for our facilities to catch up. This is a critical time for the school to expand in support of our strategic growth and bold vision. The Haskayne Capital Expansion Project includes our second building, Mathison Hall, and enhancements to our existing space, Scurfield Hall.

Project funding

In June 2018, Calgary business leader and philanthropist Ronald P. Mathison made a $20 million gift, spearheading the philanthropic funding for this ambitious project. In his honour, the new building is named Mathison Hall.

We are seeking additional philanthropic investments to close the gap on Mathison Hall and enhance the existing Scurfield Hall. These new facilities are a state-of-the-art home for the Haskayne School of Business – not just for today, but for generations of bold leaders to come.
