Laurier's business and economics programs are recognized across Canada as both leading and innovative. Our students become products of what Canadian businesses need: smart, motivated, knowledgeable, and professional employees. Laurier programs use a variety of techniques including case discussions, simulation games, visits by business executives, and student projects. By providing a real-time laboratory in which to experiment and apply theoretical learning, the programs help you develop a better understanding of how to work together to analyze situations and manage organizations.
We believe immersive learning is the key to that preparation. From day one, Lazaridis School students learn to work in teams tackling real-world problems that exist now. Our co-op business degree is Canada's largest because we want to immerse our students in the kinds of environments they'll experience when they graduate. All of this is about teaching Lazaridis School students to think for themselves so they'll be able to adapt to a world of ever-growing complexity, facing problems nobody has ever solved before.
When our students aren't winning national case competitions, they are leading student clubs and organizations, volunteering in the community, or starting their own business.
