As the 21st century unfolds, the issues of international development and globalization are central to the future world order: the way in which the underlying economic challenges are resolved will fundamentally change our society. The International Economics and Development Program is built on a variety of economics courses that provide insight into the way in which globalization affects individuals, industry, the public sector and entire nations. The understanding it provides of economic concepts is framed by an awareness of the factors that shape economic growth and development, in both emerging and industrialized economies.

This program is offered in English and in French.

Co-operative education is available with this program.

The French immersion stream is available with this program.
