Why study Economics at Bishop’s?

Bishop’s is located in Lennoxville (a suburb of Sherbrooke), which is a small, peaceful, bilingual town brimming with community spirit. Lennoxville itself is located in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, which are renowned for their beauty and opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of studying at Bishop’s is its smallness. You won’t get lost here — all the teachers get to know you by name and give individual attention to every student. Bishop’s Economics department is committed to excellent teaching. Indeed, the Economics faculty have won a number of teaching awards and have received national recognition in Macleans magazine.
