School of Business & Economics


With the help of donors, Laurier's School of Business & Economics (SBE) has become one of Canada's leading business schools. Our goal is to acquire the resources to allow us to Build Canada’s Best Business School.

Your gifts allow SBE to offer innovative educational opportunities, attract and retain outstanding faculty, foster internationally recognized research programs and bring top students to our program. In turn, we give them the skills and opportunities to develop into talented employees, often top business and other leaders as well as well-rounded citizens who add significant value to the society into which they graduate, work and live.
