Which business program should I go to?

The following are my choices
  •  UTM Commerce
  • McMaster Business 1
  • uOttawa Commerce
  • Brock Accounting
  I’m from Ottawa so I’m considering uOttawa a lot rn. I’ve also heard that it gives the best chance at landing a job after graduation.   What are the pros and cons of each?

  1. Did you apply to Brock because you want to be an accountant? The Big 4 recruits heavily from the program and it fast-tracks your CPA. If you want to be an accountant, you should go to Brock or Waterloo AFM. None of the other programs you got into are Tier 1 or 2 business schools – Ivey, Queen’s, Waterloo, Schulich, McGill, Rotman, UBC, Laurier, etc. UTM may be closer to 2.5 due to its affiliation with U of T. Ottawa is a pretty trash school for commerce. But it depends on what you want to do. Where you go for business only matters for some fields like private equity, investment banking, finance, and consulting. It matters somewhat for accounting. It doesn’t matter at all for others like marketing and human resources. So you need to be more clear on your career goals before asking where you should go. And, by the way, Laurier economics is not a business program; economics is a social science degree.

  2. Just commute, dude. You don’t need to pay for excessive room and board for biz school unless it’s an Ivey or Smith. Save your money and just go to uOttawa.
