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 ClassroomAs we seek to carry out this vision, we seek opportunities to connect our students with industry. Read more at Ambrose Business Students on Their Industry-Focused Experiences.
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.

Hire our Grads
Good jobs are tough to find but our Ambrose grads are landing them. Many are differentiating themselves based on the handson industry opportunities they took advantage of while at Ambrose. Others made their job connections through Ambrose and other networking opportunities. Ambrose Business may help create the opportunities, but it is our grads and alumni putting in the hard work and creative thinking to fully realize them. Hear from some of our 2020 business grads and read their blog here.
We engage with such organizations as ATB Financial, CPA Alberta, DECO Windshield Repair, Enterprise Holdings, Epic Roofing, Samaritan’s Purse, PWC, Sponsor Energy, Fiasco Gelato, and Black Diamond Group through industry fairs, lunch ‘n learns, and other networking events. Recent alumni are starting careers in some of these organizations, as well as large organizations like: Suncor, Apple, and PepsiCo; accounting firms like MNP; banks like BMO; non-profits and churches like Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary and Experience Church; tech companies like SMART Technologies, and start-ups like Little Biz Marketing, Mobile Escape, and Tiller Digital. Our alumni continue to succeed and give back to their communities in a variety of careers once they graduate from Ambrose 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. One of the ways we stay current and connected is through advisory committees for our streams. The mandate of these committees is to advise our professors and the business program on those streams and to connect with our students.
