Bachelor of Commerce
The generalist orientation of this degree enables graduates to succeed in a range of diverse industries and positions. Organizations seek candidates who have developed relevant educational, extracurricular (clubs, volunteer positions), summer/part-time work experiences and take responsibility for the direction of their working lives.
The key to obtaining meaningful employment after graduation is the development of a marketable portfolio of skills and experiences. The Haskayne School of Business assists business students in:
- Researching career interests
- Skill identification
- Resume/cover letter targeting
- Interview preparation
- Identifying work opportunities
Bachelor of Hotel and Resort Management
The intent of the degree is to develop students with both a skills-based and management theory education, who have the potential to assume senior positions in the hospitality industry (specifically in the accommodation and food and beverage sectors).
It is anticipated that these students will appeal to businesses in the hospitality sector of the tourism industry.
The mission of the Haskayne MBA is to challenge students to develop their abilities as managers. The program develops skills in leadership, business development, communication, and strategic analysis through the core functions of business, and through focused specializations.
In addition to the role of an academic professor, students earning the PhD degree can succeed in research and advisory roles in government as well as a broad spectrum of industries and organizations.
