The Asper School of Business is located on the University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus in South Winnipeg, Manitoba. The school began in 1937 as the University of Manitoba Faculty of Management. The school was renamed in 2000 in honour of Izzy Asper, noted for his many contributions to the City of Winnipeg and the University of Manitoba over the span of his life. There are currently 1,600 B.Comm. students attending The School.

Programs[edit]

The school offers degree programs and courses for undergraduates, as well as to graduates leading to MBA and Ph.D. degrees. They also offer Executive Programs, an Aboriginal Business Education Partners, International Exchange Program and Co-operative Education Program.
