Your classmates come from various faculties. With them, they bring different perspectives, experience and knowledge. You'll have the opportunity to work in multi-disciplinary teams. This helps to prepare you for the workplace where it's common to interact and work with many departments. To date we’ve had students in the MMgmt from all different kinds of non-business backgrounds, including those listed below.

  • Applied mathematics
  • Animal biosciences
  • Chemical engineering
  • Economics
  • Education
  • Energy engineering
  • Geography
  • Geophysics
  • History
  • Humanities
  • Kinesiology
  • Law and society
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Nursing
  • Petroleum geology
  • Physical education
  • Political science
  • Psychology
  • Social work
  • Sociology
  • Urban studies

As a recent graduate with a degree in Applied Mathematics, I had the technical skills but not the soft skills or the business acumen required to obtain a job. The Haskayne Master of Management program strengthened my collaboration and communication skills and developed my business knowledge. As a result, I am now working as a Health and Benefits Analyst at Mercer.
