ESG UQAM uses an interactive instructional approach fostering in-depth understanding of economic mechanisms. Special emphasis is given to the practical application of acquired knowledge.
In order to devise solutions to practical problems, it is very important to develop a critical perspective on current economic issues. For this reason, the vast majority of compulsory courses include both theoretical and practical components. Practice-based activities include:
- Economic, political or financial model simulations
- Statistical data analysis
- Research projects on assigned or elective topics
- Experiments to prove or disprove a theory
