For Accounting and Marketing, Schulich is one of the best. Consulting is getting better at Schulich and Finance their sucks.

Rotman and Waterloo AFM is pretty good for accounting as well.

No, I'm actually from Calgary so I'm carefully studying out ALL of the schools in Canada and not just those in the east coast.
I guess from your comment you're wondering why I've placed Sauder fairly high. I do hope you know that Sauder is one of the best business schools in Canada and it's known worldwide.

Yea i do know its a great school and i respect the program a lot, but in terms of finance in the east coast, it isnt as strong.
Of course, thats only the east coast and i dont know anything about the west coast besides the fact that Haskayne places really well in Calgary so... lol.
Again, my list was just my opinion of the east coast side of things

You're somewhat right that when it comes to presence in recruitment functions or gala dinners in Toronto, UBC students aren't there. Neither are students from west coast or US business schools that the banks recruit. Essentially, recruitment is done through Sauder's Career Centre or Vancouver IBD offices of each of the respective banks.

You can look up any of the recruiting calendars for RBC Capital, TD, etc.-- UBC is one of the few business schools where all of the major investment banks recruit.

What about Bulge Brackets? You'll probably be interested in knowing that Goldman Sachs hired four Sauder grads last yr with only Ivey sending more. UBC's PMF program is also a program that garners a lot of attention from BBs. Since it's the oldest investment program in Canada, it has an alumni network that (IMO) only rivals Ivey and Queen's. Hence why Sauder is one of my top considerations.

Queen's placed 5+ into Goldman NY for this summer. How many did Sauder place into Goldman NY (IBD, ER, SSG, IM) for 2011 SA?

I don't know whether that's true for this summer, but I was only referring to last year where a Queen's student confirmed that he knew four grads were offered full-time analyst positions in Goldman Sachs from Queen's 2010 graduating class though I forgot to ask how many went to NY.
To make my point perfectly clear here, it'd be preposterous for me to believe that UBC will overtake Queen's with GS/BB offers for the next few years. I still have UBC at #4 for finance, but IMO they've already established a much stronger reputation for banking than Laurier or Schulich.

To justify my reason for placing Sauder at #3 for consulting ahead of Schulich and McGill:

Avg Consulting (Functional Area) Salaries and % of '10 Grads:
1. Queen’s (9%) $68,800
2. Sauder (6%) $61,500
3. Ivey (16%) $60,512
4. Schulich (7%) $58,200
5. McGill (6%) $53,700

BTW McKinsey does not recruit at Schulich.

I'm impressed by your research. You seem to back your points up quite well.

Ivey places by far the most into MBB, both relatively and absolutely. Salary means nothing - MBB pay less salary but more bonus compared to lower tier firms. Also, barely 5% of Sauder breaks into consulting (and how many are MBB?).

You should really learn before you spew nonsense like you do.

He isn't implying that Sauder is better than Ivey. I don't think you're reading his posts carefully enough.
