Queens mostly known for Marketing?

A photo of ToiTeam ToiTeam
I was recently chatting with my senior uncle who is a PhD and a CFA. He is a really educated and smart individual. According to him, Queens university is mostly known for Marketing. Is it true? What do you think?


I am thinking of going to Queens for finance.

Queen's is a university that is overall very strong in all fields. If you take a look at their annual report CLICK HERE it is strong in pretty much every field.

Trust me, I have heard from people that Queen's is strong in Accounting and Marketing, and from others, I have heard it is strong in Finance and Consulting.

Your uncle was probably referring to the Queen's MBA program.

Is Ivey supposed to be bad for Marketing and Advertising? I know they're supposed to be good for Finance and Consulting but weak for Accounting, but what about Marketing?

That's the summer employment; kind of misleading. Check out the annual salary report for a more accurate answer.

The only things I don't think it's really known/good for are management accounting and supply chain management

While QC definitely has a lot of success placing its students in the marketing industry (particularly in CPG's), it is a recognized program in all fields. For instance, one third of students go into accounting. That's one of the benefits of a four year program; students have the chance and time to be exposed to all types of business and excel in what they love.
