Queen's Commerce or Bust?

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Hey everyone,

So I will be applying to various universities across Canada, and hoping to pursue a career in business. I hope to dual major in both computer science and business hopefully, but in regards to the business aspect, why do so many people say Queen's Commerce or bust?? I will be applying there for next year, but I have a few questions about it's overall image...

Why is it Queen's commerce or bust if

- you have to compete with everyone in the program for internships, a.k.a very hard to get experience with no co-op program

- paying pretty much double for a regular commerce degree?

- you are competing for business related jobs with almost everyone in Ontario, even if prestige of Queen's gets you ahead by a bit?

- Other schools offer equal or even better education, as well as have co-op to help gain experience and become more employable?

Any unbiased input would be appreciated

Thanks

Only go to queens commerce if you want to succeed in business. Other schools are great for inetivable failure. #queenscomm

Wow. One kid is trolling by posting Queen's commerce or bust in every thread in an online high school forum and you're taking his or her word for it? How naive and ignorant can you be?

It’s not a lot of people saying it, it’s the same person over and over again. Queens commerce is a great program but by no means is it the only way to succeed in business. There are many other great programs.

Ivey Student here, it isn't queens or bust.. They are a great school, and the only school that Ivey really pays any attention to when it comes to competing for jobs, but I think you are pulling at straws saying that queens > Ivey

Don't take his word. Accounting or Finance are the popular choices for students and IVEY is on par with Queens for Finance and Waterloo is better than Queens for Accounting, so it really isn't queens or bust, research more about other schools and where they stand.
