We prepare our students for the world that's coming, not the world of their parents. 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. As a result of our commitment to the student experience, Maclean's has named Laurier the #1 school in student satisfaction for the third year in a row.
Our AACSB-accredited programs are among the most selective undergraduate business programs in the country and our students are among the most engaged. 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.
The Lazaridis School operates the largest business degree co-op program in the country. We encourage our students to explore different career options and gain valuable employment experience before they graduate. If that isn't enough, our employment rate for the BBA program in 2017 was 98.7% and our BA (Econ) employment rate was 100%.
