Jobs outside of accounting?
Hey, I was wondering if an accounting degree would solely lead to accounting roles in the future, or case specific for Brock if there are students who transitioned into investment banking from the Brock accounting undergrad/masters after receiving CPA.

I did read that one of the community members was offered an IB position at RBC while completing an undergrad at accounting co-op Goodmans.

Bachelor of Commerce + MBA
I recently spoke with an adviser from Ted Rogers school of management and they sort of simplified my long term goal of potentially becoming a bank manager: 
4 years to acquire bachelor of commerce in business management major 
4 summers of intern/ employee level work at a bank, equivalent to 1 year of experience 
2 years of work at an entry level position at a bank = 3 years total of experience (recommended to pursue MBA) 
2 years in Ted Rogers school of management for MBA, totaling 8 years 
Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice? 
Help me choose between University of Toronto or York or Queens or Ryerson or HEC Montreal?
So I got chance into Masters program in Masters in Management in York, Masters in Management in Queens, Masters of Management of Innovation in UoT (Rotman Business School doesn't offer it, it is offered in UoT Missisauga campus), Masters in Management in Ryerson, Masters in Global Supply Chain Management in HEC Montreal. 

I have plans of staying in Toronto so I believe I need to rule out HEC Montreal. Still I am keeping it in the options. So based on your experience which one will be good in terms of reputation, job placement? Also I was willing to move to Asia region like Singapore, Malaysia, China or Middle East for future career. So which one will be internationally acceptable?

Also consider the fact that I want to get good grades. So need to know which ones are harder and which ones are comparatively easier to survive?

Is the MBA co-op of Wilfried Laurier worth it?
IS the co-op program worth the time and cost? Specially for an international applicant whop lacks "Canadian Experience"? Will there be enough jobs after this MBA? Any alumni here or someone who is currently enrolled here? I cant seem top find it in any university ranking. However, some people are saying that a small portion of Ontario people know about it. Will this be a good career choice if I want to do jobs in major cities like Toronto, Montreal? Please share your experiences.

How is the value of a graduate degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada?
I was wondering what would be the job prospectus of a postgraduate business degree, be it MBA or MSc in business related subjects, in Canada? I have heard that it is only valued in New Foundland province. I have heard that It is not of value in big cities like Toronto or Montreal. Dont know if this is entirely true. Specially from an International student's perspective. 

Care to share your knowledge about it?

Masters in Management or MBA- which one is better?
I am an International student from India. My undergraduate degree is biology. I am interested in doing an MBA or a Masters in Management. MBA in top universities in Canada are very very expensive whereas Masters in Managements cost less than MBAs. Will I be able to get job after the Masters? Also I am not willing to do MBA in 2 tier universities because I heard that they can be overwhelming but not very good with job perspective. However doing Masters in Universities like UoT, McGill, UBC, York are pretty cheap compared to their MBA programs.

Which MBA program should I go for, Ryerson MBA/ Concordia MBA/ HEC Montreal MBA/ Wilfried Laurier MBA Co-Op?
I am an International student from Bangladesh. I have a BSc in Microbiology. I intend to do MBA from Canada and join management career in health care management. Which MBA would be the best value for money and good job prospect? I intend to settle in Ontario, specially Toronto. I am not expecting a huge salary at entry level but a decent one. I have also heard of Laurier Co-Op which may help me get into networking. I do not know for sure. I cant find Laurier in any kind of ranking. As I am an international applicant may be finding a job after graduation is hard. Also some people suggested me that it is better to do Masters in Management in top schools rather than MBA because it will cost less. Need suggestions based on personal experiences. thank you.

University GUIDANCE needed please help! CALLING ALL YCONIC MEMBERS!
Hi to all of the members on Yconic. I am currently in grade 11, attending a semestered school. I have spoken to numerous guidance councillors at my school and need some help as their guidance is COMPLETELY USELESS. 
I have a strong interest in chemistry and business. I like the idea of becoming a pharmacist, doctor or investment banker. I am applying to university in grade 12 and really could use some advice. I do not want to pursue university and graduate with a BA, in which will leave me hanging in the longrun. Do you think I should go for a Bachelor of Science and hopefully get in to med school? Or go for a more secured option and attend a business school and get a corporate job? 
Please let me know what you think I should do in accordance to my current grades which I will list below. Thank you so much. I really need some guidance ASAP as my school has none to offer. 


P.S Im currently enrolled for summer school gr 12 english and gr 12 advanced functions 
Thank you so much for reading this! I am really lacking some guidance.

MBA Accounting LAURIER or Master Accounting BROCK?
Hi guys!

So I got my degree in accounting already now that I like to study more about Accounting in Canada.

I am considering between these two programs. Tuition fee is not too different.
MBA Laurier is obviously more famous, 20 months: 3 study terms: 1 integrated term and 2 accounting terms and then 2 terms co-op
While Brock has 12 months program: 3 terms of accounting and 1 co-op term.

I am considering which one is stronger and better for me to get a job afterwards? ( I am an International student)

Do universities or colleges even look at your grade 11 marks for admission?
the title says it all really, because I didn't do that great in grade 11, but I am currently pulling it up to an average of an 80...for now. Oh and I am looking to go into business admin.

Queens combined JD/Master business admin
Hi i am just wondering how the dual degree works for JD/Master business admin. Do you first study commerce (or whatever program) then apply to the law school and when your in law school you can do the dual degree? Or is it like Western where in your fourth year of you're undergrad you start studying law? Some details about how it works would be great!
