yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!

I have about 91 average so far . I am looking to apply to Business programs that are known for startup and entrepreneurship. My goal is to attend Uni and then start my own business after graduation. I have looked at programs like Schulich, Ivey, Rotman, Queens, etc but these programs are more focused on Accounting and Finance. I don't like the idea of paying huge tution just to attend top business schools (queens, ivey). Can anyone suggest any school that offers good opportunity for startup and well known for their entrepreneurship program .
I am a high school student looking to improve my presentation and communication skills. I believe Presentation and communication skills are very important in order to succeed at Business schools. I recently checked Toastmaster International. Does anyone know any other place where I can improve my presentation and communication skills? Any advice?
I am looking to apply for Back up Business Programs other than Schulich,Laurier, Queens, Ivey, Mcgill, UofT, Ryerson, etc. The program should have minimal math and great opportunities. It can be outside ontario.. Any suggestions
I have completed my top 6 with about 91 average with decent EC.
I am just deciding if it's worth going to Laurier BBA over Schulich. I know it will be easier to achieve higher GPA at Laurier than it is at Schulich. Laurier is improving every year,
(new building) and also has an excellent social life compared to Schulich since many students at Schulich are commuters. There's also a risk of not getting co-op at Laurier which concerns me . Will it limit my opportunity if I don't get co-op at Laurier?
On the other hand, Schulich is reputed all over the world not just in Canada. It is compared to schools like Queens, Ivey, Rotman,etc. Many employers recruit students from Schulich considering the fact that it is a top business school and many hardworking students graduates from there. I am just wondering if its still worth going to Laurier BBA without co-op in my mind over Schulich.
It would be very helpful if someone give me advice or share their experience that would be very helpful.
I am in grade 12 and looking to apply to school for business and plan to specialize in marketing. What school is best for marketing specifically? I am very creative but also great with math and people, which is why I am leaning towards marketing. If anyone has any suggestions for a business program that seems fitting that would be greatly appreciated!!
Hello university students !!! I will be applying to university soon. It would be very helpful for me and other students thinking of applying to Business Programs. I would appreciate if you share about your experience in your Business programs about the followings:
1. Workload (very important)
2. Opportunity in terms of Co-op, internship,networking, etc. (very important)
3. Social life (somewhat important)
4. What advice would you give to future students if they were to succeed in Uni
5. If you were in grade 12 what program would you chose and why?
