Western Ivey Supplementary Application
Hi, I'm a grade 12 student studying in Ontario and have applied to the commerce program at the University of Western. I'm a bit confused because there doesn't seem to be a supplementary app for business (unless i just haven't been able to locate it), while all the other commerce programs have their supplementary apps due quite soon. If you know whether or not there's a commerce app (not the one for AEO) and if so where to find it, please let me know! Thank you!

rotman commerce colleges?
I'm confused.
Even if I won't be living on residence I have to apply to one of the colleges but whats the purpose of it? what good does it do? what are the benefits? I heard that some are more prestige than others because of the curriculum or something.

Does gpa matter in business school? There was a presentation in my university about how the next few years of school are gonna go (im in first year) they told us that gpa matters the least in importance. What matters most is networking and extra curriculars. Is this true? Would someone with a 3.7 gpa have the same chance of getting hired as someone with a 2.5 gpa? I think I’ll have a 3.7 gpa after finals this semester and people say that more doors will be open for me if I continue getting good grades, But now I don’t think that that’s true. I understand that networking is very important, but I was also told that most business grads don’t even put gpa on their resumes/job apps. So I don’t see how my gpa can help me at all. What is the point of a high gpa in business if it doesn’t even matter? I’m confused lol

What are some things students overlook when selecting a business school?

1. Co-op/Internship Programs

Experience is important. That’s why attending a business school with a co-op/internship program (or solid connections with employers) is important. The more experience you can build before graduation can make a huge difference.

2. Professional Designations

Thinking of doing your CPA or CHRL? It’s important to attend a business school which offers you the courses you need to fulfill the education requirements for your chosen professional designation.

3. International Accreditations

AACSB and EQUIS are two of the most prestigious accreditations. Why are these important? If you apply for jobs/internships abroad, companies can do a quick search to see if your school meets international standards. Few people in Germany have probably heard of Brock University, but I was able to land an internship there because Brock’s business school is AACSB accredited.

Also, you can leverage networking opportunities that come from being accredited. For example, the top 10% of students at AACSB-accredited schools are invited into an honour society called Beta Gamma Sigma which has an inductees-only job board, leadership events, and discounts.

4. Recruiting Targets

If you have a list of target firms, check to see where they recruit from. As an accounting graduate, I can attest to the fact that the Big 4 focus on certain institutions – make sure you don’t end up at a university where they have a small on-campus presence.

Are there any other things students overlook when selecting a business school? Comment below!

Any suggestions
 I was a student at university of Saskatchewan and because of unfortunate circumstances I couldn't do well in school for first two years. I was taking science classes and I was asked to discontinue for a year. I worked all that year and spent time with family. Following that year I started school again and was doing well till one of my family member passed away. I wasn't able to write my finals for first semester and second semester I couldn't focus anymore because I was so depressed. University asked me to discontinue again and I did because I couldn't bring myself to do anything. Now I'm feel like I'm ready to go back to school but I don't want to go to university. I was thinking to apply for Nait human resources diploma. Do you think I have a chance of getting accepted with all the U of S history. I did have decent marks in high school. I just had very unfortunate past 6 years of life. 
University to College
After careful consideration I have made the decision to drop out of university and go to a college program I enjoy more. My only question is how do they treat applicants in my circumstances for admission? I completed two years of study at a university. I had a final high school (grade 12) average of about a 78%. The program I studied at university is not related to the programs I applied to. I'm mainly wondering how they will consider my grades, university and high school equally?

Is the bell curve at SFU Beedie really horrible?
So I got into UBC Arts and SFU Beedie, and I'm sooo conflicted right now! I'm scared that if I choose Arts I won't be able to find a job, and co-op is really important to me but UBC's co-op is supposed to be really hard to get into. Arts is what I'm more naturally drawn to, but it's well known that it's hard to get a job with an Arts degree unless you get really good co-op or continue school to get a Master's degree. Arts is really interesting, but I'm not really sure what I would do as a job. My parents say I should work for the government, but I don't know what path I should take to get there. I don't have a plan if I go into Arts, so I feel like I'll waste time. As for Business, I have a plan and I know I wanna go into HR, but I feel like I'm not naturally made for it. The bell curve is a big concern for me too. >_< What are your opinions and what can you say about the bell curve?

- Nice campus
- Prestigious, the UBC title
- No mountain
- Arts is more up my alley  

- I don't know what I want to do in Arts, I would probably try out a lot of subjects and be anxious and there's the risk of not having a job
- The commute is longer, like an hour by bus
- Arts doesn't really have a good reputation

SFU Beedie PROS:
- Shorter commute, half an hour by bus
- The reputation of being a Beedie business student is better
- Greater chance of finding a job after graduation
- I know i want to get into HR as a concentration for Business

SFU Beedie CONS:
- There's a mountain so there's a risk of being stuck at school if it snows like this year
- Gloomy campus, not as nice
- I will probably struggle in Business at first because I have no experience and it is out of my comfort zone

Anybody currently in or already finished your BBA?
I am currently thinking about going into Business Administration and have actually applied to some universities already. I was wondering if anybody in it or have done it already could give me some tips, pros and cons about the program and why you wanted to go into business? I just want to see other perspectives and get some insight. 

Question for anyone that's doing the Bachelor in HR at York University
I'm really interested in this course, can someone please tell me what it's like so I can get a feel for how it really is?

human resource at schulich?
hey I was wondering if it is worth it to go to schulich school of business if I want to pursue a career in human resources. I know its a great business school but its most popular for marketing and accounting. Would I be better off doing my undergrad in psychology and perhaps my masters in human resource after (at schulich or uoft) or even just CHRP post grad diploma? I've seen a lot of ppl doing psych go into human resource. Also, if i do my undergrad in psychology I feel like I will have more options if I choose not to go into human resources. But, if I go to schulich I will be stuck in business! Any advice on what I should do?

UTM Admissions
I was accepted into the humanities program at UTM and I now want to go into business management at the campus instead, in which I am still waiting for a reply from uoft after adding the program almost 2 weeks ago. But the deadline to accept my offer is June 2nd, and I have a feeling they will respond later, so would it be possible to accept my Humanities offer and take business courses instead? and if it is possible, would it also be a possibility to obtain a bba?

Can I become a Teacher?
Hello, I am a high school student and just got accepted to York U for Human Resource Management and would like to also become a teacher in the future. I just found out about the concurrent BEd program at York and will be applying for next year (I have heard that I can do that). I know that I must have a bachelor degree in order to do my Bachelor of Education but is a Bachelor of Human Resource degree even relevant? Will I be able to get into the BEd program?

Please Help with university decisions
So even though my application to Laurier is still pending I think the chances are slim. So the two buisness programs I have came down to are McMaster buisness I and university of Guelph economics and finance with co-op out of the two what are the pros cons and what would the better program be overall in everyone else's opinions.

P.s I still don't know whether I want to get into finance or human reasources but if I decide to get my CHRP the commerce program I select does not really matter.

Online course teachers
Are most teachers for online courses strict about assignments being late, do they take marks off? And by late I mean like a day or 2..

Human resources ( goal human resource manager)
What is the best human resource undergraduate program? My average is around 86. I was going to go to Laurier BBA or Ryerson however I was told that Laurier wasn't worth it if you didn't get Co op. I don't like uncertainty so.... Is there any Queens program ....some even suggested college.

Thinking of Bachelor of Arts (Sociology) and/or Bachelor of Business Administration (HR)
I'm thinking of going into Bachelor of Arts and major in sociology and/or minor in Bachelor of Business Administration in HR.
