Laurier Honours BBA(Co-op) or UTM BBA?

A photo of Neil01 Neil01
Hey guys, Im a grade 11 student who is interested in pursing a career in business. Grade 12 is coming soon, and I would really appreciate some advice. First off I want to go to a university with a good social environment as well as a successful degree. If was wondering if Laurier has a better BBA program of UTM.

Do you have any ideas what range your grades will be in? This way we can recommend other schools as well.

I would say Laurier. UTM is a good school too, but if you can get co-op at Laurier you will be golden, and it also has a good social environment.

What are you planning on going through for?

And + 1 to what Username81 said.

Mid-80s could give you a shot at Laurier, UTM, UTSC, McMaster and Rotman. High 80s - low 90s would give you a shot at Queen's, Schulich, McGill, or Western + Ivey AEO.

Pretty much all of these schools will be good (the second list with the better reputation).

Consider campus, rez, costs, social life, atmosphere, people, city, etc.

Advanced Functions almost always will be part of your Top 6.

And Username81 isn't in Laurier (yet) if that's what you're wondering? :P

Yeah mine were around that too and I worked my but off and did really well. Don't apply because you don't think you can get the grades. Because worst case is you'll get rejected (which you would've expected). If you don't apply and have the grades...you're SOL.

And yea the list g93 said is very accurate. Since you said you want a good social environment too, I would say Laurier would be on the top of that list. In terms of academics, Rotman and Laurier would be very close....but no co-op at Rotman. So in terms of Laurier or UTM, I'd choose Laurier.

If you want to go into accounting specifically, Laurier is a great choice :)

And yeah I'm still in high school lol but I'd be glad to tell you what I think once I'm in lol :)

Well to put in perspective, grade 11 functions was 84, grade 12 was 91.

And if you plan on taking data instead of calculus, you cannot apply to Queen's since calculus is a pre-req. Check into that because Schulich and McGill may be the same.
And I'd rather not answer the last question for obvious reasons :p
