International Business at Carleton?
Hey there everyone!
Recently, a Carleton rep came to my school, and did the usual presentation, but also told a bit about her own respective major; International Business. She said that she took a language course as well as a semester abroad, along with her regular business courses.

I'm going to be taking the Grade 12 International Business course next year, and am also completing the International Certificate program at my school.

Although unsure, I'm really interested in this subject, so if anyone in the International Business program could tell me their experiences, it would be amazing!

Thanks so much!

University of Toronto Scarborough
Hey, I've been doing some research on the UTSC Management and International Business Co-op and have become really interested, especially since I believe that I have a good chance of getting in with my marks/EC's. 

Anyways, I have a few questions about the campus and student life, in addition to the program. 

SO - 
1) - Can anyone speak to the program from first hand experience on here. I'd love to get some personal experiences.
2) - What is the campus life like? (I don't live in the area so I would have to live in res) I have read that the buildings aren't great and located in a sketchy part of town? (I haven't had a chance to go myself yet, but if I can legitimately see myself going there I would go visit)
3) - I've yet to see many posts about this program on this page - I can't find admissions numbers (# of students admitted) - does this program have a good rep? (I know that you graduate with a degree saying U of T no matter the campus which is probably a big advantage) 

Sorry for the long post. Any answers would be helpful.

How hard is it to switch programs in university?
I will be going to Carleton for Bachelor of Global and International studies, say I want to switch after first semester or first year into the international business program, is it difficult?

Additionally, I currently don't have calculus and vector however plan on taking it in the summer. I did advanced functions however didn't quite make the 70% cutoff. If i do late admissions with the calc mark is there still a chance or no?

Thanks a lot!

French as a second language bursaries?
Hi everyone!

I'm currently going into grade 12 and hoping to study business/international business in the future. I have taken french throughout high school, and am currently planning on taking it again for grade 12. This past year I also did an exchange in Switzerland where I learned french. Now that I can speak it, I know that I am guaranteed a great mark in this class, and hopefully a leg up in the future. I would like to know if A) it is worth taking again, and B) if there are any scholarships or language bursaries at any universities in Ontario (specifically Queen's or Laurier).  I have looked all day online and on yconic for them and have yet to find them, but have been assured they are there. If anyone has any knowledge of this, please let me know! 

Waterloo Transfer student HELP ME !!
So I am a mature student and applied through OUAC 105. Now my goal is to become a CPA through waterloo. How ever when I was applying for programs, I was applying late so the AFM program was closed. So I applied for University of Waterloo Honours Arts (Regular only) University Main Campus. This September I will be in the arts program and I want to go into the AFM program. I emailed them and this is what they said.... 

 Good morning, Thank you for your email. In general, you should be applying to a program which you are interest in staying in for the 4 years of your undergraduate program. If you do feel that you need to switch program then you will have to meet all of the admissions requirements to get into that other program you are seeking a transfer into. For the AFM program you will need the following: § Any Grade 12 English 4U (or equivalent) -- A minimum grade of 75 is required § Advanced Functions 4U (or equivalent) -- A minimum grade of 75 is required § Calculus and Vectors 4U (or equivalent) -- A minimum grade of 75 is required § Applicants will be required to complete an Accounting and Financial Management Admissions Assessment. Details will be emailed to you once you have applied. § Admissions Information Form Details will be emailed to you once you have applied. You will also need an overall average from your first 2 terms of study at Waterloo in the mid to high 70’s. You will most likely start in your first year again as the AFM program is a professional program and the courses you will take as an Honours Arts student and as an AFM student are very different. AFM only takes student in to transfer in the Fall terms. So if you were admitted for Fall 2016, the earliest you could transfer is Fall 2017. If you have any other questions please let me know. 

 Now i have these marks in high school.... how ever does that mean the courses i completed at waterloo during the time I was enrolled as an arts student not be transferred into the aim program... not even as electives... and also to change programs do i have to apply through OUAC 105 again... because they do ask for my high school marks again.
