Stupid comment. A lot of people from Carleton get jobs at KPMG when they graduate.



I go to Carleton, so I can give you actual information, unlike almost anyone else in this forum...

I'll focus on accounting, as the accounting program is strong in my opinion. You can double concentrate in Finance without taking any extra time. But I don't know how great the opportunities are for a Carleton Finance graduate...


Reputation: Carleton doesn't have the greatest reputation, but their accounting program is growing. With consist strong scores in the UFE, Carleton's accounting program is growing a reputation.

Coop: Carleton has a coop program. I wouldn't say its the greatest coop program. Many students get placements in the big 4 and other accounting firms through coop. Keep in mind you have to be a strong candidate and do a lot of networking for these jobs. Most students get CA firm jobs in Ottawa. You can get a job in Toronto, but it's definitely a lot harder since recruiters from Toronto don't come to Ottawa.

Opportunities to transfer: Ummm, you can transfer once your in the program? Don't know what else to say.

Teaching Quality: The accounting professors at Carleton are mostly really good. There are many professors with teaching awards and most of them have a lot of industry experience.

Employment Ratings: If you have a strong academic average and have extra curriculars, you will be able to get into the Big 4. It's not easy, but many people do it.

Send me a message if you have anymore questions about Carleton!

Sorry, my previous post was biased.

Although Let me ask you a question, if you were an employer, saying that both graduates have the same qualifications. The only difference that one is from Carleton and the other one is from Richard Ivey School of Business.

Who would you hire?
