Through judicious hiring, focused effort and teamwork, Laurier's Finance Area has become a leader in research and teaching. Our faculty address some of the most pressing issues in Finance today in their research and publish in the discipline's leading journals. The expertise of our faculty includes issues in corporate finance, options pricing, fixed income securities, market microstructure and insurance. Through the Financial Services Research Centre, the Area attracts outstanding academics as guest speakers to the school.
Laurier offers undergraduate, masters and PhD students an excellent offering of Finance courses. The undergraduate and masters courses are designed to be both conceptually rigorous and sufficiently applied so that our students will be 'job ready' for finance careers on both Bay Street and in the wider corporate sector. Further supporting this education is the country's largest business co-op program. At any one time there are approximately 75 Laurier students in co-op positions in Canadian and U.S. capital markets. Our graduates are sought after by leading finance companies such as Fidelity Investments, Gluskin Sheff, Scotia Capital, TD Bank Financial Group and GE Capital and by corporations such as Loblaws and Proctor and Gamble.
