Faculty Profile

"The UAlberta Executive MBA program attracts some of the brightest and most talented executives in the country. They bring their intelligence, experience, industry knowledge and collectively, a variety of backgrounds into the program. Each class I learn from them and they learn from each other. The program is small and cohort-based-instructors get to know the students well and the students create a network that is one of the most valuable outcomes of their Executive MBA degree. The program is demanding and the rewards are huge.."

Dr. Richard Field, Professor of Strategic Management and Organization
