The popularity and demand for economics co-op programs is increasing across the country. The reason is simple. Economics is a discipline that lends itself ideally to co-operative education. The qualitative and quantitative analytical skills of economists-in-training are in demand by the private sector and the public sector alike. Co-op programmes combine a solid base of course work with work terms that can provide students with invaluable experience.

Students from this program can assist both the public and private sectors on a variety of projects including:

  • Statistical data collection
  • Quantitative and qualitative economic analysis
