We are all global citizens with a stake in the economic issues that have become an integral part of our daily lives. From the local economies that drive our national industries, to the complex nature of free trade between countries, Cape Breton Island offers a unique glimpse into the fluid world of economics.

As a social science concerned with the efficient use of resources in production, exchange and consumption, students from dozens of countries arrive here to gain a better understanding of how local and global economies thrive. They end up graduating with the confidence and knowledge they need to enter the professional world of economics. Economics professors at CBU are dedicated and engaged professionals who stay on top of developments in the global economy. This gives students an up-to-date flow of knowledge regarding the creation and distribution of wealth, labour disputes, unemployment, inflation, taxes, oil prices and international trade. And that’s just to start. Our modern facilities and comprehensive curriculum ensure you have what you need to achieve true economic success in the real world.
