Being a general business studies undergrad gave me the flexibility to explore and pursue my interests in a variety of disciplines. Besides the core business curriculum, I was able to take courses in sustainability, energy development, leadership, indigenous studies, international business, business law and human resources arbitration. All have been invaluable in my career. Some of the more memorable experiences were doing the Haskayne Wilderness Retreat, a mock HR arbitration, and meeting peers from all majors at the Haskayne School of Business. Participation in the co-op program with Shaw and Shell Canada was fantastic and set up my early career success.
