Ryerson Economics

Economics is a global game with high stakes, and its key players have the expertise and insights to score big in business and finance. Practitioners in this dynamic field have a keen understanding of the interconnectedness of worldwide markets. Our curriculum was designed with input from renowned Canadian economists and business leaders, providing students with specific training in finance and international issues. Due to our small class sizes, students have extensive opportunities for one-to-one interactions between students, professors and program coordinators. In our unpredictable economic times, Ryerson graduates are leaders when it comes to making strategic business decisions from an informed global perspective.
