100 Years of Business

Since 1916, the Alberta School of Business has embodied the adventurous and ambitious spirit of hard-working Albertans. A century later, we celebrate that energy and success with the students, alumni and supporters who have made the School what it is today: one of the best business schools in the world.

Join us as we celebrate our legacy, our impact and our future!

Leaders from Alberta for the World

Founded in 1908, the University of Alberta in Edmonton is one of Canada's top teaching and research universities. The Alberta School of Business was the first business school in Canada to receive AACSB accreditation in 1968.  In 2013 the Financial Times of London ranked us top ten in research for publicly-funded universities; our MBA, Executive MBA and PhD programs are consistently ranked top 100 globally.  In 2013 we also launched the University of Alberta's first international degree - the Master of Financial Management in China.  Leaders from Alberta for the World is our vision; energy, entrepreneurship and global impact are our priority areas.

Earned Excellence.

The Alberta School of Business is the first and longest continually accredited business school in Canada:
1968 – 2014

To celebrate their transformational role as we look towards the next 100 years, we are establishing the Centennial Leaders Fund. We invite you to join the community of donors who have enabled us to come so far by making a gift as we celebrate our centennial year.

Donors to the Centennial Leaders Fund will have a significant impact on the lives of our students. Your gift will provide them with the skills and inspiration to become the innovators, scholars and leaders they were meant to be and will lay strong foundations for the future ahead.
