It’s not surprising that Haskayne is the go-to school for students eager to work in the energy industry. It offers a specialty in global energy management and sustainability, which encourages students to view the industry from political, environmental and cultural perspectives, in addition to teaching the fundamentals. A number of notable energy execs count themselves as Haskayne alumni, including Russ Girling of TransCanada and Al Monaco of Enbridge. The school added two new exchange partners this year: Nagoya University of Commerce and Business in Japan, and Yonsei University in South Korea. Full-time students start in September, while part-timers begin in either September or January.
