I swear we just had this topic two days back. There are going to be so many opinions based on this, but the top 3 would GENERALLY be Ivey, Queen's, Schulich with Ivey and Queen's often being interchanged. It all comes down to what an individual wants from his/her school.

Yes, you can (with the fourth you mentioned (in descending order)).

Disregard all these stupid lists and tiers and do the following:

1) Ask yourself what fields you're most likely going to pursue

2) Check if top firms recruit from the school

3) Check out the alumni base in those fields at that school

Arguing between Queen's and Ivey for finance is as stupid as arguing between Schulich and Rotman for accounting; both schools are targets and have a good alumni base so it won't make much of a difference.

Just curious how do you rank Carleton BCOM in tier 3 and Ryersons at tier 5? The cutoffs higher, and its a much more reputable program in the GTA and is quickly growing

@marvin1992, I agree with how you ranked Tier 1 and 2. The rest are a bit more subjective

That's because of carpeting alumni base and recent success at jdc and other case competitions

I can't even tell if you're joking or not because you forgot both UBC Sauder and McGill Desautels.

This, and also ask "will I enjoy myself here?"

If you really want to have tiers, make them yourself, because it is you who will be choosing.

Gotta' love g93's response. Agree.

In addition to g93's comments, a few other factors to consider.......
1. A BA in Econ is NOT a B.Com or BBA.

2. What works for you? A big school versus a small school? I've said before, that Trent is a small school that has a personality very different than a UofT, for example.

3. Does the program offer flexibility (for those who may be unsure)? Some schools such as Ryerson, Guelph-Humber, UOIT basically offer NO flexibility outside of Business courses. Queen's curicullum is about 80% business. Trent's can range from 60% business to 80% business - possibly allowing for a "minor" in other programs (eg. BBA with a Minor in Psychology)

4. Whether you want to work International - this is where "school name" may come into play.

Another factor....don't fool yourself to think that Bussinesses will come looking for you...in most cases (regardless of schools) you will need to go looking for a job
