UTSC Management

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
How hard is it to maintain a high GPA in the program?
Also would you consider this as a high tier program (e.g comparing with laurier, queens, etc)

This program is not considered a higher tier program by anyone that actually knows anything about business. A lot of people I know don’t considered Laurier BBA a higher tier program either. It’s still a good program and a solid choice, but not looked at the same way as Queen’s, Rotman, Schulich, or Ivey.

But some people say that UTSC management is better than rotman because utsc has the coop option while rotman doesn't. for either program, when you graduate it will show "University of Toronto" not rotman .

You asked if this was a top tier program, I answered truthfully and said it isn’t. Once again, no one that really knows anything about business will say this program is upper tier. 

The fact that you’re degree will only say “University of Toronto” doesn’t change the ranking of UTSC Management, at the end of the day Rotman and UTSC Management are two different programs. Rotman is a BComm and UTSC is a BBA so when you put BBA on your resume an employer familiar with UofT will know you didn’t go to Rotman. Let me give you an example, if you go to University of Waterloo for computer science it won’t be regarded similarly to going to Waterloo for history. It doesn’t matter if you’re degree only said “University of Waterloo”, one program is much better ranking wise when compared to the other. 

Coop is also a nice factor but again it doesn’t change the ranking of the program. Also, if you look at einfo for Rotman it shows that coop and internship opportunities are available for the program. If you want to go to this program that’s perfectly fine. But at the end of the day it is NOT a top tier program. Don’t just believe what your friends tell you. Do your own research instead of relying on others.

Yeah.. and OP, who in the world told you Laurier was a top-tier program? I'd rather have a U of T business degree than one from Laurier.

If you're in the coop program then it is highly competitive and well regarded. Non-coop is not that good.

Rotman has a very high dropout rate. I would be hesitant to go there. My friend graduated from there and told me around 30-40% of his first year class could not make it into the second year. Given their high entrance requirements you should not take this lightly.
