Economics expertise

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:

  • Debates
  • Economic, political or financial model simulations
  • Statistical data analysis
  • Research projects on assigned or elective topics
  • Essays
  • Experiments to prove or disprove a theory
  • Presentations
