Community Connections
Join aMBAsa, the Asper MBA Students’ Association, and take part in the fun of their special events and initiatives.

Connect with people whose ideas, perspectives and passion will inspire you, expand your professional choices, and accelerate your career. You will have direct access to some of Manitoba’s most dynamic and influential business leaders through the Associates and the Young Associates, the province’s premier business networks.

  • Bridge theory and practice by engaging with the Associates in the classroom, where they share the knowledge and global experience currently shaping business management in Canada and beyond.
  • Build relationships and enrich your career options by participating in events, luncheons and lecture series hosted by the Associates.
  • Attend the Associates’ annual International Distinguished Entrepreneur Award (I.D.E.A.) Dinner. A premier event in the Canadian business world, this award honours individuals who’ve achieved international stature and outstanding entrepreneurial success and made exemplary contributions to the economic life of Canada and the world. We’re talking big-league names like Sir. Richard Branson, Martha Stewart, Jim Sinegal (co-founder and CEO of Costco), and Stu Clark (2012 recipient).
  • Get to know the Young Associates, an organization comprised of young business leaders representing virtually every sector of the Manitoba economy.

The opportunities for successful connections don’t stop there. In the classroom, you’ll share ideas with culturally diverse faculty and students whose global perspectives give you the insight you need to make complex business decisions.
