We enable research by world leading scholars to develop insights into local and global business solutions.
We encourage leaders in the business community to harness their expertise and shape a new breed of leaders.
We engage people who make valuable contributions to support our programs and help the world manage the thorny challenges hurtling towards us.
Haskayne School of Business campaign goal
Progress to date:
Donors empower students in engineering and business
Developing leadership talent on tap
At Haskayne, community engagement is win-win.
As the business community taps Haskayne for leadership expertise, we tap local and global business leaders for their real-world knowledge.
We bring the right people together internally and externally to incubate ideas and turn them into solutions.
A number of our programs engage successful leaders from Calgary and around the world. The Jarislowsky Fellow in Business Management executive in residence program attracts business, social sector and public sector leaders, who act as role models.
Great things happen when leaders lead
The Haskayne Founders’ Circle, a dedicated group of Haskayne supporters, joined Dick Haskayne and other visionaries and philanthropists to help create a school that will shape the future.
By supporting Haskayne, they are helping transform business in Canada. They provide opportunities to pioneer cutting-edge research and directly engage with key industries — such as energy, real estate, finance, insurance and health care.
Dick Haskayne became a business leader through hard work and good ethics, important values instilled by his parents. The Haskayne School of Business is just one of the legendary entrepreneur's many good works in Calgary. His generous donation of $16 million helped to create an endowment to attract outstanding professors, as well as important programs that are turning today’s students into the next generation of business leaders. Today, the school has an annual enrolment of about 3,000 undergraduates, 300 MBA students and 30 PhD candidates.
