Overview

By combining both the finance and economics programs, students earn a holistic degree, which emphasizes the financial analysis and management side of economics and business administration, and therefore equips students with advanced skills in financial analysis, management, and forecasting skills.

Algoma U’s four-year Bachelor of Arts in Finance and Economics is a unique program, different from other university programs found across the province. Our faculty is committed to a hands-on learning experience where students are able to establish a personal relationship with their professors. This fosters a very intimate and interactive learning environment.

This program concentrates on theory, applications, and explorations in current and policy-related issues at the regional, national, and international levels. Students will study the roles of government, business, and financial institutions, as well as individuals as they interact to determine the distribution of a country’s total range of goods and services. Courses cover a wide array of topic areas, including environmental economic policies, microeconomics, urban economics, international trade, public finance, international finance, elementary statistical methods for economists, among others.

Co-op Education

Co-operative Education, or Co-op, is designed to integrate undergraduate academic studies with paid work experience. It provides students with meaningful, paid work experience, networking capabilities, and helps build and develop students’ competencies and skillsets.

To graduate with the Co-operative Education Certificate, students must successfully complete their degree program, pass COOP 0101, and successfully complete three work term placements (with one placement being during the academic year).
