Designed for recent graduates of non-business fields, the Haskayne Master of Management program provides students with the opportunity to supplement their undergraduate field of interest with business skills and knowledge. Upon graduation, students will possess an interdisciplinary skillset that will provide the comprehensive edge needed to successfully launch their career.
Throughout the 10 months of intensive, full-time study, students will develop a broad knowledge of business essentials from accounting and marketing to logistics and entrepreneurial thinking. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to begin their careers in positions requiring interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving and a curiosity for exploring alternatives to standardized approaches.
Beyond the classroom, students will have exciting opportunities to make connections with the Calgary business community and grow their skills through networking events, live case studies, mentorship, career development opportunities and more.
