See what students say:


Located in Canada’s “second business center (behind Toronto),” University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business “has close connections with local business.” That’s a big deal when you’re in “the heart of the energy sector of Canada” and those connections forge a “link to the oil and gas business environment and high-level executives.” Students note that “the integration into the oil and gas community is very evident here (e.g., speaker panels with oil execs, etc).” Haskayne’s energy-related specialization is in global “energy management and sustainable development.”

Energy isn’t the sole focus of a Haskayne MBA, though; on the contrary, “there is a good emphasis on bringing in execs from a wide range of industries,” with finance and accounting among the program’s other strengths. Across the curriculum, Haskayne employs “a mix of both…cases and structured lectures…and methods even beyond the two…to provide all the learning that’s essential to make good leaders for tomorrow.” “In some courses, the guest speakers alone provided the ROI in the course,” one student exclaims. “Really, really interesting” electives include “entrepreneurship and new venture courses that are so much fun.” “Leadership panel discussions and other networking and learning events for students” add further value. Speaking of value, “the cost of living as well as the tuition rates are reasonable” here, meaning that Haskayne “offers an outstanding graduate education at a fairly affordable price.” Students also see, and appreciate, the program’s “willingness to be innovative and [administrators’] willingness to receive student input.” Haskayne offers a twenty-month daytime MBA, an executive MBA, an evening MBA at its downtown campus, a Global Energy Executive MBA offered in five locations around the world, and a thesis-based MBA for those interested in pursuing business research.
