Justin Knibbe is an experienced entrepreneur who has been teaching since 2020. He teaches undergraduate and graduate students entrepreneurial thinking, creativity, innovation, and new venture creation. He loves supporting his students and seeing their ideas come to life, and he is also a huge supporter of their mental health, understanding that there is an overwhelming amount of pressure on students today.

Justin is a firm believer that you learn by doing, and his classes exhibit experiential learning, games, and activities that he has created to bring lessons to life. Justin also serves as a Faculty Advisor for the social entrepreneurship club, Enactus.

Because of Justin’s dedication to his students and their journeys, he won the following awards:

  • Student Union Teaching Excellence Award 2020-2021

  • Haskayne Students’ Association Superior Service Awards for Professor 2022-2023

Justin is currently the director of the Master of Management program at Haskayne. He is heavily involved and loves planning events and activities for the students, getting to know and supporting them, and working to grow the program. He led the program to its highest growth in Fall 2023, seeing an increase of 40% over the previous year.
