Diplomacy, war, political economy, the balance of power. Things along that line.

I wasn't trying to be a dick. I would recommend reading a few books or articles about economics before deciding to major in it. If you really want to know, look at the course listings that U of T and York have and compare the two, and maybe read on it in your spare time.

Also, U of T has a stronger economics department, but undergraduate programs are pretty similar in the quality of their teaching. Pick the school you like more.

Before I decided to go into social sciences I was planning on going into business, which is why I did a ton of research on it before and know a bit about it.

In general, the top business schools in Canada are, in no particular order:
University of Western Ontario (Ivey HBA)
Queen's Commerce (BCOM)
York - Schulich School of Business (BBA/iBBA)
McGill - Desautels Faculty of Management (BCOM)
UBC - Sauders (BCOM)

After those five are what people consider "tier 2":
Laurier (BBA)
UofT (BCOM)

Then after that is anything else. The top 5 I listed all require 90's (idk about UBC, you can check that if you're interested). Even though Queen's admission says you need 87% to be competitive, you will be competing with people with 90's anyway.

Laurier and UofT are really good business schools too. Laurier's biggest faculty is business, so it's well-known for it. They are also one of the few business programs that offer co-op (none of the other 6 universities offer co-op - edit: again idk about UBC). And UofT has Rotman, and is generally good all-round.

I don't know too much about Ryerson but I think that UTSC offers co-op in their program too.

IMHO you should be posting this in the business forum. They would be able to give you more answers than you'd find in the social sciences/humanities section.


Btw I agree with Qq, it's January and you're asking these questions now? A lot of people start rsearching in gr 11, myself included. Anyways, if you want to find hard cold information, go to the university websites, they have all the information about all of their programs posted there.

That's true. I myself never really considered it because it's much farther than say, Quebec, but many people do consider it to be one of the best.

LOL, idk where you get your info from, but according to Financial Times 2010:
Rotman: 1st in Canada, 45th in the world
Ivey : 2nd in Canada, 49th world (although I doubt it because I personally know quite a few people who are still unemployed after they graduated from Ivey)
Shulich: 3rd in " ", 54th " "
Sauder: 4th "", 82th " "
U of Alberta: 5th " ", 86th " "

LOL, you don't even know how to quote properly.

If those rankings are garbage, then provide me another ranking that fits what sevenzeroz mentioned in his post.

Please do not forget that forensic psychology is not the only program I am studying in, the other major is called "International Relations" and it touches on business/economic related topics too.

Anyway, stick to your high school courses :compress:

If you would have cared to notice, the quote got mixed in with your url. Maybe you should have hyperlinked a word instead, then it would have quoted properly.

No one is disputing the Financial Times rankings, but for any one to use that as evidence that Rotman Commerce is a better choice than Ivey HBA needs a reality check.

Lol you need to calm down man. Those are MBA rankings, and since OP is obviously considering undergraduate studies, I gave a general ranking of universities based off my own and many other peoples' opinions of which universities would provide the best undergraduate business programs.

I'm not here to argue over which university is the best based off one single website's rankings, because I have no doubt in my mind that there are other websites that have different rankings. If you really want to prove that Rotman is the best business school in Canada then go over to the business section and discuss it there. I'm sure they would be glad to tell you otherwise.
