MABE Graduate Research

All MABE students must undertake a Major Research Paper (MRP) in the third academic term of study. This paper will involve the application of economic analysis to some policy or question.

In this course, students are expected to apply many of the skills that have been stressed throughout the program.

Students are encouraged to consider possible topics for their MRP during the second academic term or while on their Co-op work term (if applicable). Students are permitted to choose research topics related to their Co-op work placements; however, it is important that students choose topics for which suitable supervisors are available. Please consult our Faculty Research Specializations page when looking for MRP supervisors. 

The most recent MRP abstracts can be found below, as well as an archive of previous abstracts.
