Management Economics and Finance (BComm program)
The Management Economics and Finance major offers students an appreciation of business and economic challenges, specifically within the area of finance. In your fourth semester, you will choose to specialize in either Finance or Management as an area of emphasis. Both specializations provide you with the ability to think in a disciplined, structured and open-minded way, and apply this way of thinking to tackle challenges in a globalized economy. This major combines the analytical nature of finance and economics with the practical tools of accounting, business management and marketing for you to gain a broad exposure to the financial management sector. You will engage in a challenging and rewarding intellectual environment, gain in-depth knowledge of finance theory, and obtain a practical understanding of a broad range of business areas.
