Message from the Dean
Through SBE's portals have passed a remarkable number of Canada's and the World's current business leaders and, based on discussions with companies that hire from Laurier, the leaders of tomorrow.
Laurier SBE was the first of the Canadian Professional Business Schools to offer a Co-op BBA degree. We also have a Co-op Option for our Honours Economics students and in September 2006, we introduced a Co-op Option for the MBA students. This unique and creative offering allows our students an opportunity to mitigate the cost of their higher-level education while exposing them to real-life business experience. Graduates of our co-op program have the highest placement rates of any professional business program in Canada.
Laurier SBE is best at bringing real business experience into the classroom. Our faculty members are handpicked as scholastic leaders and many have illustrious business backgrounds and spend a great deal of their free time refreshing their craft through intensive consultation assignments locally and internationally. The student classroom experience is augmented with a comprehensive Laurier Leaders program that allows a unique opportunity for our students to interact directly with local and international business leaders.
Laurier SBE has a reputation for being the only Business and Economics School that provides opportunities to create a program that is tailored to each student's particular needs. We understand that needs are unique and we have an extremely flexible approach to collaboration between faculties and even schools so that the student can pursue exactly the degree that is right for them. Just ask us!
I look forward to meeting you and seeing how we can work together to ensure that the Laurier School of Business & Economics takes its rightful position as the highest quality and most successful business school in Canada.
