Building on a Century of Impact
In 1916, a little more than a dozen students attended business classes in the Department of Accounting at the University of Alberta. A century later, that department has grown into the Alberta School of Business: an internationally recognized centre for excellence in business education and research with over 26,000 alumni worldwide.
Since its beginning, the Alberta School of Business has been built through the support and partnership of our community. Its very existence made possible by the advocacy of the people in Alberta and beyond who recognized the value and strength of business education.
Over the past 100 years, as the School has grown so has its community of supporters. From students, faculty, staff and members of our alumni community to employers who work with our graduates and those impacted by our research, the School has benefited from the collaboration of people working together for a bright future. Their leadership and support has allowed the School to rise to new challenges, thrive, and create a lasting positive impact which continues to grow each year.
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.
Gifts to the fund will:
- Provide students with the opportunity to take part in life-changing co-curricular experiences such as case competitions, study tours and student-led events
- Recognize achievement and alleviate financial need through scholarships and bursaries
- Enrich learning experiences by providing international exchange opportunities and student support programming.
