Being 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.

Hamir PatelHamir Patel (MFin 2010)
Director, Equity Research, CIBC Capital Markets, Toronto

“As someone who knew they wanted to pursue a career in capital markets, I was attracted to Laurier's MFin program due to its combination of rigorous PhD courses (often taught by professors who have published in the top finance journals) and MBA finance courses tailored for future practitioners. At the same time, the school's highly regarded co-op program was instrumental in me gaining an eight-month placement on the sell-side in equity research at TD Securities in 2009 (which set me on the path to my current role)."
