In the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics, our students say, “You don’t get a Laurier BBA, you live a Laurier BBA.” From day 1, you’ll learn to work in teams tackling real-world problems that exist now, not in the history books. Our business degree co-op program is Canada’s largest so you can gain valuable experience before you graduate. Our goal is to immerse you in the reality of today’s businesses and teach you to think for yourself. You’ll learn to adapt to a world of ever-growing complexity, and solve problems no one has faced before.
Our program uses a comprehensive approach to business. You’ll begin by taking courses that cover all of the foundational areas of business, and then develop specialized knowledge in your area of interest. Whether it’s accounting, marketing, brand communication, sustainability, finance, entrepreneurship, human resource management, risk management, international business, or supply chain management, you’ll find what you’re looking for at Laurier.
You also have the opportunity to earn all the university credits required for the major professional designations: CPA (accounting), CFA (finance) and CHRP (human resources).
Your Laurier business education will give you the skills that lead to a successful career in the private or public sectors, or as an entrepreneur running your own business. Sample careers of our recent graduates include:
