Wow I can't believe I missed the deadline for this event. I literally live 2 minutes from the Schulich Building and I was hoping to meet some of you awesome folks... Oh and are all of you from Toronto, or will you be driving to York from out of the city?

But, URGH! This sucks.

Look presentable. I wouldn't advise a suit, but it is a possibility. Wear dress pants, dress shirt, and a tie/or dressy sweater.

Schulich 2014.

It was a 2 hour long event.

First hour was in the auditorium where we sat down and listened to a few presentations:
1. First, a finance professor spoke generally about the Schulich program and introduced the faculty profs. (Her presentation was poor, stumbled many times and I even felt a little frightened for her, sorry)
2. Next, the Dean of Schulich spoke about the economy and what sets Schulich apart from the other business schools. (The information was good, but some of it was hard to understand because he had a slight accent.)
3. A panel of 3 Schulich Alumni answered 3 questions each. Why they chose Schulich? How they got the jobs they have now? What advice do they have for incoming Schulich students?
(answers varied, wasn't that helpful)
4. Congratulated those selected for certain scholarships. Congrats guys!

Second hour was in the main hall where we got to mingle with the Schulich faculty, staff, students, alumni and ask questions and get a tour around the school.

Overall, it was a pleasant evening, an event more focused on providing information than to market their program. Personally, I wasn't very impressed. The building looked absolutely amazing, but the presentations were a little lacking compared to the presentations I've seen at Ivey and Queen's.

I spoke with the Dean, the president of the Schulich Student Organization, and 2 students from first year. They were all very nice people. Here's what I learned from my conversations with them:
From Dean:
1. The undergrad business degree as we know it now will be a high school course in the next 5 years, so it's not worth spending too much money for it, especially since you can pursue graduate studies. This is to convince those going to Ivey and Queen's to come to Schulich I assume.
2. Schulich is able to keep tuition for students low because the Dean is apparently a very good fundraiser and since he wants to attract the best students, he feels like keeping the tuition low is the way to go. The Dean is apparently part of numerous international organizations and has been at Schulich since 1988...
3. Ivey's case study method is outdated, even Harvard as made the switch.
4. Schulich is the only forward thinking business program out there, both Ivey and Queen's use old teaching methods.
5. Schulich is ranking higher each year while the quality of Ivey and Queen's is slipping each year.

From President:
1. Schulich is the place to be for accounting and marketing. He is in third year and he has an internship with a marketing company.
2. Schulich is not as good at Finance and Consulting compared to Ivey
3. Top 5 Banks recruit from Schulich
4. Numerous of his friends got internships in iBanking. One of his friends will be making 25K this summer from his internship.
5. The Schulich community is very close knit, everyone knows everyone's name, first and last.
6. Teachers at Schulich are there to provide constant support, they can be approached anytime.

From the 2 undergrad students:
1. The student body at Schulich is very diverse, people from all over the world.
2. They love the program very much for various reasons. (Close knit community, the Schulich library, the methods of teaching and the building itself.
3. Both commute and say that it's very different from high school.
4. Not enough lockers in the building...

I got a tour of the building and it was incredible. But that doesn't cover the fact that the York U campus is hideous, even the undergrad I spoke to attested to that.

If I remember anything else, I'll tell u, but that's about it.

I did not go. Instead, I spent time speaking with people whose company I can enjoy.

Testing my patience more (after the enrolment appointment) was inadvisable anyway. By the 20th time "Schulich School of Business" was mentioned at my EA, I was quite upset.

If this school insists on being pompous about its programs, I suppose it has perfect rights to do so. But I believe this method cannot justify its program which resembles more a shell than anything else. Simple humanities courses combined with minor mathematical knowledge are what puts Schulich squarely in the ballpark of Ivey, Queen's, and McGill.
