The Economics program of University of Guelph offers a finance specialization for students who wish to focus their studies towards finance-based economics.
Master’s students can choose a course-based degree (8 months) or course work plus Major Research Project (MRP) degree (12 months). The MRP is completed in the third semester, supervised by a faculty member. Both specializations (Economic and Finance) will need to take a non-credit preliminary mathematics course as well as the Economic core of advanced microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. Students interested in the finance specialization will need to take additional courses in theoretical and empirical finance.
