Know the Difference Series
This two-part panel will host professors and industry professionals in each of the three fields of Economics, Finance & Management and give our peers the opportunity to witness a discussion that will deepen their understanding of these areas of study. What exactly is the difference between Economics, Finance and Management and what sets each stream apart? Our aim with this panel is to distinguish between the fundamentals of each of these three academic divisions and what each stream prepares one for in the professional world. It is our endeavour to clarify any misconceptions students may have regarding these fields, so as to aid them in making more learned academic decisions.
This event will provide students with the opportunity to meet the professors offering research opportunity programs (ROPs) in the upcoming academic year. The ROPs will cover economics and management departments and are targeted to all students with an interest in research in either of these two fields. Through this event, students will be able to network with the professors thereby putting them in a more suited position to understand each ROP's requirements and how to stand out from the pool of applicants.
The Graduate Career Panel opens the discussion for an avenue of possible options current undergraduate students may explore and consider prior to graduation. Whether it be graduate school admissions, obtaining first-hand work experience, or delving into the world of research, this panel serves to inform current students of the many options they have and even be aware of the various ways their degree can be used in a non-traditional field.
