Thinking of applying to Science and BusinessBiotechnology/Chartered Professional Accountancy, or Biotechnology/Economics programs at the University of Waterloo? The best way to see how we do business, accounting, and economics differently here at Waterloo is to see what a day-in-the-life of a student looks like, first-hand.

Join us on campus for our November Shadow Day, exclusively for Science and Business, Biotechnology/Chartered Professional Accountancy, and Biotechnology/Economics — led by a team of current students, faculty, and staff who are excited to give you an inside look.

  • Connect with current students and ask them your questions
  • Attend sample lectures
  • Meet instructors who may, one day, teach your classes
  • Tour the campus, science facilities, and student spaces

At Waterloo, our business-related programs are intentionally embedded within individual Faculties versus a business faculty. This means you'll graduate as a business professional with an additional, specialized area of expertise. In Science, employers spoke and we listened by creating these one-of-a-kind Bachelor of Science programs. Find out more about how you can become one of our sought-after grads with a niche degree that employers value.

This workshop aims to improve each student's skills in information retrieval, information organization and written presentation of that information while giving students an opportunity to analyze real life market case studies and experience a live project by launching your own product/service in the market.

Note: Official schedule will be provided to those selected to attend.

Tip: The University's Fall Open House is on November 5th. If you're having trouble deciding if you should attend Fall Open House, Shadow Day, or both, keep in mind that Fall Open House is a broader event that covers all Faculties. There will be presentations on the business-related science programs at Fall Open House and you'll get to meet current students, but the Shadow Day will offer a more in-depth, program-specific look and you'll attend sample lectures and workshops.
