AFM-FM or UTM commerce?

A photo of JessJ JessJ
Hey guys!

The decision deadline is coming..but i am still undecided between Waterloo's AFM-FM and UTM commerce.
I goal is to pursuit a CA designation, so can any of you please list the pros and cons for each of these two programs? (especially those who are already in these programs.)

Also, I heard that as a FM student, you are not allowed to coop in a public accounting firm at all, so does the FM student have the equal opportunity to become a CA compare with the PA students?

Thank you

You can still apply to CA firms in FM, you just won't have access to the CA firm jobs on JobMine like the PA students.

You will have to go to the recruiters yourself. Will it be harder than in PA? Yes. Is it doable? Totally.
