A graduate education provides opportunities to develop and enrich intellectual skills in an area of special interest. At Laurier, we are recognized innovators. Our graduate programs include a number of firsts: Canada’s first 12-month MBA program, the country’s first Master of Music Therapy and the first PhD in management with a stream focusing on financial economics.
