Program Description Algoma University’s four-year Bachelor of Arts in Finance and Economics is a unique program, different from other university programs found across the province. Our faculty is committed to a hands-on learning experience where students are able to establish a personal relationship with their professors. This fosters a very intimate and interactive learning environment. Unlike at most other post-secondary institutions, Algoma University offers a degree in both finance and economics – most other universities only offer one or the other. By combining both programs, students earn a holistic degree, which emphasizes the financial analysis and management side of economics and business administration, and therefore equips students with advanced skills in financial analysis, management, and forecasting skills. Our program concentrates on theory, applications, and explorations in current and policy-related issues at the regional, national, and international level. Students will study the roles of government, business, and financial institutions, as well as individuals as they interact to determine the distribution of a country’s total range of goods and services. Courses cover a wide array of topic areas, including environmental economic policies, microeconomics, urban economics, international trade, public finance, international finance, elementary statistical methods for economists, among others.
