Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just entering the work force, Laurier’s professional development offerings will provide you with an edge in today’s competitive career environment.

Some of our professional development opportunities are considered industry-specific course equivalents; connect with the coordinating department for additional details.
