Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

The Lazaridis School of Business and Economics houses two academic departments: the Department of Business and the Department of Economics.

Department of Business

The Department of Business offers a variety of options in both its BBA and its MBA programs, which allow students to pursue a specific interest within the study of general management.

Business Areas

  • Accounting
  • Business Technology Management
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Operations and Decision Sciences (ODS)
  • Organizational Behaviour/Human Resource Management (OB/HRM)
  • Policy





Department of Economics

The Department of Economics consists of 28 full-time faculty members in a variety of research fields, who are committed to the pursuit of excellence in teaching and research. Our location within the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics enables us to offer programs that combine a traditional education in economics with the acquisition of skills in accounting, management or finance.

A degree in economics provides career possibilities in both the private and public sectors. Laurier economics graduates have been admitted to top graduate schools in North America and Europe. Other graduates have enjoyed successful careers with major corporations and financial institutions, as well as organizations in the public sector.
