Ryerson Bcom vs Laurier honours economics

A photo of Mgill Mgill
I am debating whether to accept Ryerson's Ted Rogers Business Management program (Bcom) or Laurier's Honours Economics and Accounting program. What would you recommend? I believe the Laurier program gives you a BA? Does that mean even though i am taking economic and business courses i will only get a bachelor of arts degree? Also, what math courses are mandatory for the Laurier Honours Economics and Accounting program? Is it just one course or does it really go into depth in terms of math?

Please let me know any other additional information that may be helpful for me. Thanks alot!

1. Undergraduate calendar

2. BA, not BBA/BComm etc. (HBAE actually and if you go through for accounting it will be an HBAEA)

3. Economics involves math

What do you plan to go through for?

What school do you like better? (campus, rez, atmosphere, etc)

I am aware economics involves math but do you have any idea how many math courses are involved in the Laurier program? I heard MA129 is the required math course which is Introductory Calculus for Business and Social Science. Are there any other required maths? In terms of campus, rez and atmosphere i really like laurier but i am looking at it from the program point of view at this point.

You are also required to take MA122 (Intro to Linear Algebra) in Yr 2. You can choose MA129 (easy), MA103 (hard but gives you more skills) or MA110 (fairly hard, not as hard as 103 but 1.0 credit/all year).

Some of the economics courses you will take will have a lot of math and calculus components.

You can check the undergraduate calendar to see what courses you will need to take for the various concentration paths.
