uCalgary developing global energy EMBA

July 12, 2010

The University of Calgary's Haskayne School of Business has partnered with IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates to launch an executive MBA program focusing on the oil and gas industry. The tuition for the program, to be taught in 5 three-week modules, is $105,000, nearly twice the fee for the standard executive MBA at Haskayne. The fee will rise with the cost of travel, as each class will take instruction in 4 oil and gas hot spots -- Calgary, London, Houston, and either the Middle East, Moscow, Beijing, or Latin America. Haskayne will provide 60% of the teaching, thus allowing the program to obtain accreditation under the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The plan is to launch the program in the second or third quarter of 2011, with a target of 60 executives in each class. The program's development is funded by a $1-million donation from the business school's namesake, Richard Haskayne. uCalgary News | Globe and Mail
