School Description

Alberta School of Business, can trace its roots back to 1916, when the department of Accountancy was established offering a three year course in accountancy and business administration. In 1923 it opened the Commerce Club and in the same year produced its first batch of Bachelor in Commerce graduates. In 1945 the program was developed with more courses such as marketing, finance and personnel management added to it. It also evolved into a four-years Honor degree. In 1960 the School of Commerce became the Faculty of Commerce; at this point the program was developed into a standard four year program, offering specializations beyond accounting. The University conferred its first MBA degrees in 1966.

In 1968 Alberta was the first business school in Canada to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Maintaining its accreditation to date, the University is the longest accredited business school in Canada and hence regarded as one of the world’s leading institutions of business education and research. This year the university celebrates its centennial.

          • 1974-1975, MBA

            First Class Business School. Opened the doors to endless opportunity!

          • 2003-2008, Bachelor of Commerce (BCom), Marketing

            The University of Alberta is an inspiring institution to expand your knowledge and learn to think critically. Some schools focus on task-based education but the UofA challenges you to think beyond and consider the bigger picture. I now manage a $4 million budget in the not-for-profit sector and rely heavily on my marketing background to achieve this fundraising target each year. When you have a University of Alberta Bachelor of Commerce degree on your resume, people notice.

          • 1992-1997, BComm., Business Economics/Law, International Business

            U of A was an incredible place to learn. Quality content and teaching was paramount in all classes. Professors also provided key effectiveness not into only teaching content but ensuring your understanding. By having blended classes of graduate and bachelor levels - application of theories and ideas in my Bachelor's degree surpassed those of many other universities at graduate level. We were given the best of both worlds- from basic concepts to advanced understanding. I would recommend this university in a heartbeat!
