60 The Faculty of Business

Who We Are

    The University of Alberta Faculty of Business, also known as the School of Business, is an award-winning Faculty and a very proud member of the University of Alberta team. We are within striking distance of our goal—to be recognized among the top one percent of business schools in the world.

    We are building on a proud history of achievement. Since 1916, when it was established as a School of Accountancy, the Faculty of Business has trained good men and women who are equipped to manage public and private organizations across the globe. Our 15,000 alumni make their mark in Canada and around the world.

What We Do

    We are a “full service” business school offering undergraduate, master's and PhD degrees. The varied disciplines covered by these degrees are grouped into four departments:

Accounting, Operations and Information Systems

Finance and Statistical Analysis

Marketing, Business Economics and Law

Strategic Management and Organization

    We offer BCom majors in traditional and newer areas of study as well as specialty niches. You can take your BCom in one of our specialized language programs: East Asian Studies, European Studies, Latin American Studies or International Business. You can take your Bilingual BCom in partnership with Faculté Saint-Jean. You can take your BCom and gain valuable experience through our Cooperative Education program. Programs with other Faculties allow students to minor in business or take joint degrees.

    Our MBA program includes specializations in Natural Resources, Energy and Environment, Finance, Leisure and Sport Management, Technology Commercialization, and International Business. We offer joint MBA degree programs with the Faculties of Law, Engineering, and Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences. We offer a joint Executive MBA program with the University of Calgary.

    Our PhD program attracts outstanding students globally. Our PhD graduates are teaching at universities around the world including Berkeley, the Australian Graduate School of Management and Carnegie-Mellon.

Faculty Awards and Accomplishments

    Our culture of research and teaching could not happen without award-winning faculty. Outstanding research puts some departments among the top 50 in North America and among the top one or two business schools in Canada. Faculty awards and accomplishments include:
