Economics (BA)

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Why study Economics?

As an economist, you will delve deeply into the world of numbers to provide analysis that will help propel your organization forward, whether you're working for Bombardier or the World Bank. Harnessing the power of statistics and mathematics to tackle economic problems such as interest and tax rates, budget deficits, and sustainable growth, you will be in a position to grapple with challenges that stand to have real-world stakes and impact.

As you acquire the expertise to use the tools of econometrics and economic theory, you may choose to focus on any aspect of economics or acquire a broad background in the discipline. You will also have the option of completing a series of paid internships through the Co-op program, putting you in a position to be job-market ready upon graduation.
