Business Schools In Canada

A photo of thegoal08 thegoal08
Hi,

I am currently staying a 5th year in high school to raise my marks/take the right courses for Business. I was just wondering what schools are best for Business in Canada. From the research I've done, it seems Schulich, Ivey and Wilfred are top dogs. I was wondering if Carleton or U of Ottawa any good for Business? This is specifically for undergraduate programs. Although my current average heading into this year is not high (84) I'm confident of raising my marks to around a 90 average. i just want an opinion on the lesser business programs in Canada.

From what i can tell:
1. York University
2. Wilfred Laurier
3. Western Ivey
4. Queen's
5. University of Toronto

Any opinion or information at all is appreciated :)

Your list is pretty accurate. Sure a couple numbers could be switched but you've got the idea. With an 84 average here's the schools you should get into:
* Ryerson
* McMaster
* Laurier (if you do the ABS well and have good EC's you may get into their BBA, if not you might get an offer to honours economics)
* UTM/UTSC (not sure their averages, but you'd stand a chance)

With 90 it gets a little fuzzy.

* Queen's - If you get an 87% average, your grades become irrelevant seeing as you made the cutoff and therefore your admission is based solely on the quality of your PSE.
* Ivey - Uses the 50-50 system. 50% grades, 50% extra curricular. 90% average is far from guaranteed unless you have decent extracurriculars.
* Schulich - Think you need a 91, but a great all around school.
* All the schools in the first list you'll get in as well.

Rotman is like an 88%, but I'd choose Laurier over that due to their co-op and it has a better atmosphere to it. But that's just me - you may think otherwise and that's fine :)

It's far from accurate.

It would be more fitting to group schools in cohorts.

1) Top business schools (QC, York, IVEY)
2) Rotman, WLU
3) Schools that have business programs but don't really care
ETC.

thegoal08, switch Queens with Laurier and your list will be accurate.

Not *totally* true. Your grades don't become irrelevant it just means you have made the cutoff and won't be automatically cut out because of marks. Your grades are balanced against your ECs....someone who has a 97% and a few solid ECs and maybe some work experience is likely to get in. Someone with an 87% and some unreal EC's, saving the world, running crap and a sick job would also get in.
