Business Administration and Mathematics Double Degree

Program ambassador Stephany

What is Business Administration (Laurier) and Mathematics (Waterloo) Double Degree?

A Business Administration and Mathematics Double Degree will allow you to fast track your way to the top by simultaneously earning two degrees from two outstanding universities: Business Administration (BBA) at Wilfrid Laurier University’s Lazaridis School of Business and Economics, and Mathematics (BMath) at Waterloo. Build a résumé that stands out to employers and sets the stage for your career in finance, business, or entrepreneurship.

Meet Stephany

Stephany is passionate about getting involved outside of the classroom and has worked numerous on-campus jobs such as being a Student Ambassador and giving tours to prospective students, being a Student Computing Consultant and helping students with on campus-systems and with their technical problems, and finally being a TA at Laurier for the first-year business courses. She's welcomed new students as Math Orientation Week leader, and she's helped students studying away from campus as a Co-op Connection Ambassador, which allowed her to plan events to connect students who were also on co-op in the same city.

“I love having the opportunity to develop deep analytical and mathematical skills in the morning, then develop my communication, presentation, and business skills in the afternoon. I know that I am a far better student, employee, and person now than I was before I started my program. Every semester challenges me in a new and exciting way, and it enables me to grow much more than I could have in other programs.”
