The Student Experience

At the University of Lethbridge, students matter.

We promise to engage you in the learning enterprise, provide you with rich learning opportunities and support you when needed. We will provide you with the dedicated support of professional advisors to help you navigate the university environment.

We recognize cultural awareness and sensitivity are critically important as organizations become increasingly global and society becomes more multicultural. Some of your classmates will be from other countries and you can study in another country for either six weeks in the summer or four months in a regular semester. You can choose to major in international management, which involves taking language courses and going on a full exchange.

We believe management educators must take the lead in promoting social responsibility in governments, non-profit organizations and for-profit businesses. You will find ideas and theories of social responsibility in many of your classes. If you have a real interest in this area, you can work toward a minor in social responsibility.

We believe students learn best when they practice theory in the real world. Our instructors will connect their research to your learning in the classroom, and you can make the theory come alive through practical exercises, applied studies courses, case competitions, and co-op work experiences.

We value the liberal arts as one of the cornerstones of education. Broad, critical, long-term thinking and an appreciation for art, literature and culture are important for you as a management student. A broad liberal arts background is the mark of an educated person.

We value the participation of Canada’s First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples in our educational programs. If you have a strong interest, you can major in First Nations Governance.

Our facilities and practices support accessibility for students with physical challenges or other special needs.

We welcome exchange participants and other students from around the world, and we work hard to make them feel at home.

We strive to serve the needs of working adults by offering evening and weekend classes in Calgary and Edmonton.
