Dean's Message

Dean Message PictureExciting times are upon us at the Hill and Levene Schools of Business. We are more than 1700 students strong, experiential opportunities for our students continue to expand, and our community partners are eager to engage with us in new ways. Here we work together with our community to positively impact our communities through student experiential learning, staff engagement, and faculty research and service.

The Hill and Levene Schools of Business have a rich history. Known originally as the Faculty of Administration of the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus, 2018 marks 50 years since the Faculty of Business welcomed its first students. The Hill and Levene Schools of Business provide an array of undergraduate and graduate degrees to business students from around the world. The University is one of Canada’s pioneers in co-operative education and one of the few in the country who offer such opportunities to graduate students in business.

Our award winning researchers demonstrate scholarly excellence but also excellence in their commitment to our community, producing research that matters.

The Paul J. Hill School of Business offers a Bachelor of Business Administration and is home to 1,600 undergraduate students, more than 20% of whom are international students from more than 36 countries. As a Hill student you are part our Hill Legacy Program, which serves to unite new students and recent graduates, creating a lasting connection and feeling of belonging. Upon graduation Hill Legacy students receive the Hill Legacy Ring.

Our Hill students boast a national reputation for success at case competitions, fundraising for charitable causes and social enterprise initiatives. The Hill JDC West team has placed in the top three ten of the last twelve years, with their latest achievement being the 2nd Place School of the Year in 2018. Also in 2018 our Accounting team placed first at ICBC, Hill students placed first at the Organizational Behaviour Case Competition and Enactus Regina was the second-runner-up in the Capital One Financial Education Challenge at Enactus Nationals. We have a unique partnership with First Nations University’s (FNU) business administration degree program, jointly providing course offerings to Hill and FNU students. This collaborative relationship is enabled in part because we sit adjacent to FNU. We are also the only business school in Western Canada to collaborate with Prince’s Trust Canada to deliver the Prince’s Operation Entrepreneur, a business boot camp for veterans transitioning into new entrepreneurial careers.

The Kenneth Levene Graduate School of Business has nearly 200 graduate students enrolled in Executive MBA and MBA degrees, as well as specialized programs such as Masters in Human Resource Management and Masters in Administration (Leadership). We were the first to offer an Executive MBA in Saskatchewan. We are also one of only three schools in Canada with a partnership with Harvard Business School’s online branch, HBX.

Graduates of Hill and Levene make a mark on our regional and national economy, leading public and private organizations in Saskatchewan and across the country. Come visit us and you won’t want to leave!
