    Course Summary

    This is about much more than feeding numbers through a spreadsheet. As you study, you’ll gain the kind of quantitative analytical skills that are in high demand throughout Canada and the world at large. You’ll use a deep understanding of statistics, economics, maths, computing and more to create accurate financial models which will help people make investment and business decisions.

Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
