Booth University College has a program not offered anywhere else in Canada and they are excited about it.

The unique offering is Booth UC's Financial Crimes program, which is the only one of its kind in Canada.

"[It] prepares the students for financial crime detection and investigation," said Laszlo Markovics assistant professor in the business department.

The Financial Crimes program, which covers things like cyber hacking and money laundering, prepares students for a career that, according to Markovics, is in very high demand.

"[Financial crimes] are so prevalent today in business life," Markovics said, explaining that more than $100 billion is lost every year because of it.

Students at Booth can major in Financial Crimes, the only University that allows students to do a Bachelor of Business Admin with that major.

Markovics explains that after the program, students can get certified with two different financial institutions that they are partnered with.

Markovics also mentioned that Booth UC is holding it's Information Night on Wednesday, November 15, where you can learn about that program and the others Booth offers.

You can also hear about student life, which Markovics says is a huge bonus at Booth.

"We constantly ask our students about [Booth's] strengths and how we can serve them," explained Markovics, saying the university wants to make sure it's students are first.

The Information Night on November 15 runs from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and is free.
