Co-op Programs

Business Economics

Brock's Bachelor of Business Economics is unique in Canada and is designed for students who wish to combine the study of economics and business. The program is divided into two streams: financial economics for those who wish to combine economics with finance and consumer economics for those wishing to combine economics with marketing.

Brock University and the Faculty of Social Sciences are pleased to introduce our new Business Economics Co-op program. This academic and work-study program includes all of the course requirements of the BBE degree, as well as three work term placements.

To ensure every student of the co-op stream receives the coaching and support needed to make the transition from school to work, spaces are limited. Students applying to the program will be selected on the basis of their academic performance, skills and attributes.

Each of the three work terms are four or eight months in duration. Work terms give students experience in a variety of fields including financial analysis, market research and managerial experience in the private and public sector.
