|Description:||Interest rates, budget deficits, social services, taxes and sustainable economic growth: economic problems sit at the forefront of public debates. As an economist, your work informs business leaders and policy makers who must make decisions with lasting consequences. You tackle real-world challenges. Your tools — economic theory and econometrics — rely on a sound knowledge of statistics, mathematics, as well as your keen analytical and communications abilities. We provide a collegial environment to become an economist. You’ll receive tutorial support in key areas and personal attention from senior faculty. You may focus on any aspect of economics or acquire a broad background in the discipline.
The Co-op program gives academically strong students a chance to complete paid work terms and gain practical experience in their field. Placements range from provincial and federal government departments to companies in insurance, banking and telecommunications. Co-op work terms make it possible for you to do: quantitative and qualitative analyses, policy research, or econometric analyses and interpretation of survey data.
