Our MA program will provide you with relevant analytical and problem-solving skills through coursework, research and practice.

Our MA Co-op program will allow you to supplement your academic education with an eight-month work term and on-the-job learning. The work term serves as a stepping-stone to a career for many of our students.

Our PhD program will give you a strong foundation in economic theory and econometrics and a variety of fields where these tools can be applied. We believe in an ‘open-door’ atmosphere, which is intended to engage and stimulate our students in their chosen paths of research.

As a Waterloo graduate student, there are a wealth of resources and opportunities available to you that support your academic, personal and social life.
