U of A Business Program

A photo of Katraa Katraa
Hi,
I'm currently applying for business programs at universities. I found out that University of Alberta has a great business program but they don't offer direct acceptance. It turns out I have to study a year in another faculty, complete few courses and then apply for the business program. Is it worth it? Because what if I don't get in? Then I would have to wait another term/year... But Alberta has a great business program... What do you guys think?

You gotta be kidding me right, U of Alberta -> great business program? lol
Think about Rotman, Waterloo, Queen's, Mcgill and others rather than U of A if you wanna get into business.

Well, they're all comprehensive universities so they're all well-rounded. In terms of business, those schools are way famous than U of A.

U of A has a great business school. This forum is just incredibly Ontario-centric, and they really don't like to think about any schools outside of Ontario, except perhaps UBC and McGill. I went to the U of A and know a LOT of people who went to the business school (including my father) who have very successful careers.
