How do the Economics (ECON) and Applied Economics (APEC) plans offered by the Department differ?
Compared with the traditional major concentration in Economics, the Applied Economics plan shifts focus towards empirical applications in business, finance and policy analysis. APEC offers more advanced empirical courses and additional scope for students to include upper-year courses taught by the Queen's School of Business. The Economics and Applied Economics plans thus provide equally rigorous but slightly different programs of instruction in modern economic analysis.
