macewan means business

Building for everyone

MacEwan has always been grounded in a place of great potential. We’ve helped shape generations of business leaders, entrepreneurs, healthcare workers, athletes, artists and so many more. We believe in our students and their ambition because they are always striving for growth and so are we. As part of our strategic vision, Teaching Greatness, we plan to grow, on average, by 5 percent each year for the next 10 years, reaching 30,000 students by 2030.

We are almost at capacity now and ready to break ground again. Join us and help build Edmonton and Alberta’s future—it’s never been stronger.
