Why would someone choose Schulich over AFM-FM?

A photo of JoeSmith JoeSmith
I am just curious why many people would choose Schulich over AFM-FM if you want to become a CA. If you are in FM, you are basically in PA as well. Even if you don't find CA jobs, you are still in a co-op program and will be able to make money. After your 4 years, you can apply for the MAcc program.

4. Faster if you want to become a CA

5. Not narrow enough to confine themselves to one career path at 18 years of age

6. York girls

Can you explain why it is faster? If a FM student is able to find CA jobs, then that student will have 16 months of work experience after graduation.

You got 4 but disagree with it?

I'll explain my reasoning anyway: After the five years it takes to complete the FM and Macc program, you would have accumulated no CA hours (unless you found employment on your own). In that time, a Schulich grad would have at least 12 months, if not 16 or 20 (depending on summer internships).

Sorry, that was supposed to be 5 and 6

There is stil la very good chance you get CATO jobs. Considering many people in FM are going after finance jobs or some wanting to become CMAs, there is a large number of CATO jobs. You could do the diploma program and write the exams at the same time as the Schulich student, and still get some work experience in the months after. In addition, you must be at a CATO to write the exams. If you are at Waterloo you are either a)Exempt from two of them and/or b) have a high chance of being with a firm, especially if you get co-op jobs already.
