Partner With Business
Partnerships lie at the core of business; opportunities come about based on who you know. Ambrose Business has an extensive array of connections at their fingertips for students to take advantage of. It takes more than just researching companies and doing case studies on them. At Ambrose, students are encouraged to take a small step outside of their comfort zone, to network with the people that could lead to huge steps in their careers.
Beyond the Classroombusinesses in the community.
Guest speakers in our classrooms are a highlight too.
The Soul of the Next Economy Forum, hosted by Ambrose University for the past 5 years, has created a solid foundation of partners. The Soul of the Next Economy brings together individuals and organizations from across sectors to inspire innovative ways to create a more sustainable economy. Companies such as Vibrant Communities Calgary, Maple Leaf Foods, CBSR, and so many more partners with the forum and Ambrose to make it possible to engage in meaningful and transformational conversation regarding the future of business.

Advise the business program
The Ambrose University Business Program is committed to training students for real-world work in their respective fields. Part of this training involves connecting the program and the students with real-world professionals. In June 2019, we met with a team of advisors for our inaugural Human Resources Advisory Committee meeting. This group included HR Leaders from many sectors (oil/gas, government, energy, technology, health & safety, executive coaching and consulting). It also included a representative from CPHR Alberta. The committee’s mandate is to advise our professors and the business program on how we can best offer our HR courses and the HR Stream going forward. They will also offer work with the program to connect the students into HR-related events and opportunities. We are excited to have such a talented group of passionate professionals partner with our program and look forward to seeing our program grow in the future! The current committee includes:
- Carter Bergen – Technical Specialist at Apple (and 2019 Ambrose BBA graduate)
