Welcome to Economics at Laurier
We are the department of Economics in the faculty of the School and Business & Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. The department consists of 28 full-time faculty members in a variety of fields.
Laurier economics graduates have won admission to top graduate schools in North America and Europe. Others enjoy very successful careers with major corporations and financial institutions, as well as organizations in the public sector.
Laurier's Department of Economics is committed to the pursuit of excellence in teaching and research within a smaller-sized university with a strong sense of community. The Department offers undergraduate programs leading to an Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Economics or Applied Economics, as well as Master of Arts (MA) program in Business Economics. Both the undergraduate Honours Economics program and the Master's in Business Economics program offer a Co-operative Education option. Our location within a School of Business and Economics enables us to offer interdisciplinary programs which combine a traditional education in economics with the acquisition of skills in accounting, or administration, or financial management.
