The Haskayne MBA program aims to transform Canada’s business landscape by enabling our students to make significant contributions as individuals, and as leaders.
Designed for early to mid-career professionals, the Haskayne Daytime MBA program will help you develop the critical thinking and leadership skills needed to achieve your career goals.
Students who have completed an undergraduate business degree in Canada may be eligible for up to 9 course waivers (post curriculum review). A minimum of 15 courses are required to complete the program; any student with more than 5 core course waivers would substitute additional electives for the remaining courses. In addition to completing the program in less time, this option also saves you money as tuition is charged on a per course basis.
