Bioresource Policy, Business and Economics

Welcome to the Department of Bioresource Policy, Business & Economics (BPBE). We are home to several vibrant undergraduate programs and three graduate programs. Our graduates have an outstanding employment record and many play key leadership roles in business, government and academia. The distinguished faculty who lead our programs have received many teaching and research awards and are internationally recognized. With students from more than15 countries around the world we have a strong international presence.

Our research and teaching activities sit at the nexus of applied economics, business and policy analysis for the agriculture, food and resource sectors. Recent and ongoing research encompasses areas such as innovation (biotechnology, plant breeders’ rights, bioproducts), rural communities, resources & the environment (climate change, water resources, forestry), agri-food marketing and supply chains, food safety, international trade, entrepreneurship, and much more.

We have a long standing reputation as one of the best departments in Canada with a student-friendly learning environment, characterized by small class sizes and excellent interaction with dedicated faculty who are recognized research leaders in their fields. We provide opportunities for students to study, work, and undertake research and travel within Canada and internationally depending on the course and level of study. We host several social events throughout the year and encourage students and their families to attend and are proud to be one of the friendliest departments on campus.

We hope that our aim - to deliver the best education, to carry out the best research, and to make significant contributions to society - locally, nationally, and internationally will inspire you to join one of our undergraduate or graduate programs.
