A bright future for students
The new MacEwan business building expands the student experience with a trading simulation lab, a new supply chain program, study spaces, computer labs and more! Our inclusive campus welcomes all students, a philosophy that is supported by our commitment to increasing international student enrolment and by our earliest and largest campaign donation from Bouchier, Canada’s largest private Indigenous company.
