The Department of Economics has a new name. The University of Guelph Senate voted Monday to change the name to the Department of Economics and Finance. Chair John Livernois says the name change more accurately reflects the teaching and research that are done in the Department. It’s also important for the public profile of the College of Management and Economics (CME), he says. CME houses business-related programs, and finance is one of the major fields of study at any business school.
On April 2, CME students Mike Ackland, Kenneth Bache, Lee Fridman, Justin Sythes and Alexandra Skorupski will host the CME Trading Simulation. The competition will provide students with the opportunity to compete in a daylong simulation, while gaining valuable experience, and networking with industry professionals.
