Alberta vs. Haskayne for Energy Sector


Hey all,

Any thoughts to as how these Canadian programs stack up for a career in energy? Can't make up my mind, both seem to be well regarded, in terms of programs and jobs in the energy sector.

I would lean towards Calgary, because grads tend to have higher salaries in general. But beyond that, a higher percentage of Haskayne graduates tend to go into the energy sector than Alberta grads.

Both programs offer relevant energy specialization options though. Alberta cohorts tend to have slightly higher GMAT averages.

Sounds reasonable. And actually, the curriculum in Calgary's energy concentration appeals to me more than Alberta's. I think I will apply to both just to make sure though.
