Program Overview

From day one, Lazaridis School students learn to work in teams tackling real-world problems that exist now. The co-op business degree is Canada’s largest to immerse 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.

The Lazaridis School operates the largest business degree co-op program in the country. Students are encouraged to explore different career options and gain valuable employment experience before they graduate. The employment rate for the Economic (BA) program in 2020 was 100%.

Students in Business and Economics will complete their UTP studies at the Brantford Campus and, upon successful completion of the program, will either be eligible to transfer or apply to transfer to complete their degree at Laurier’s Waterloo campus.
