To maximize your job potentials you'd probably want to go to grad school - an MBA perhaps if you want to pursue business - and it is best you go to a school in which you can maximize your grades. In that regard, it'll probably be a good idea to go to Ryerson as UofT has been notorious for their bell curves and for being difficult in general. If, however, you aren't planning on going to grad school then I'd recommend UofT because, ceteris paribus, you would generally find it easier being a UofT grad to find employment right out of University.

Of course, there are deviations and employment is heavily individual based.

so basically ryerson commerce is harder than USTG economics, but graduating from UTSG economics will get me a job easier. aslo what do you mean by UofT has been notorious for their bell curves.

UofT is harder. At Ryerson you can get a high GPA which is good for grad school. UofT name helps getting hired.

UofT economics will rock you if you are not excellent in math. thats basically all it is. ask any commerce student whats the hardest class they have? 9/10 times they say its economics. so imagine doing a specialist in economics? its hardcore and competitive i cant tell you how many kids ive seen come in first year and fail out because they cant get through 1st year math. every higher year eco course ive taken is all math, statistics and graphing.

the program i am in: Financial Economics, some of the courses are nearly identical to the graduate level courses, so when i apply to MFE the works gonna be easy and thats when you land the job as director of finance at TD or something.

to sum it up: UofT economics is only for the hardcore. but if you dedicate yourself you'll be laughing at the end

wow it seems really hard at UTSG economics compared to business economics at york. i think i just might stick with commerce at ryerson. lols
but do u think its easier to get a job with a economics degree or a commerce degree?

anyways thanks for your advice!

your degree name does not matter in all honesty. Richard Ivey is an HBA but it is considered one of the top schools to go to. its what you do in your degree is what matters. people who do bcomm usually do finance, accounting, HR, or marketing. those jobs are always in demand and relatively easy to get jobs. economics degree people usually do derivative trading, hedge fund managing, investment banking, etc which arent always in demand but when you do land a job you make good money.
