Economics

The Chang School offers the following specialized certificate programs in economics:

Economics

The Certificate in Economics provides students with a solid foundation in general economic theory as well as the opportunity to gain exposure to a variety of sub-fields within economics (such as labour economics or environmental economics). With economic forces at play everywhere in both the private and public sectors, students who complete the certificate will gain a competitive edge in an extremely wide range of career paths. This certificate is also a stepping stone for students who have a degree in another field but wish to pursue graduate studies in economics or a related field.

Economics and Finance

The Certificate in Economics and Finance is designed for students who aspire to a career in banking and finance, as well as those already working in these fields who want to accelerate their careers. The certificate allows students to develop strong analytical skills through a wide variety of foundational courses in both economics and finance. This certificate will help prepare students to qualify as a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and/or Certified Financial Planner (CFP), or to pursue graduate studies in economics, finance, or business administration.
