Subject: Where is a good school for International Business?
I applied to Carleton, UofT Scarborough, and York, but the program at York is International studies. I don´t know what is better Carleton or UofT. I was hope to hear from people who had knowledge of these schools. Thank You

Try the Schulic School of Business. Its the number one business school in Canada and also ranks in the top ten in the world...

I don´t think I have the marks to get into the international business program at Sculich, but I may transfer next year. I still don´t know UofT or Carleton.

haha, so what you are saying is that your marks are not good enough now...but they will be next year. LOL okay...You just realised you were being a lazy student in high school?

OH yeah, whomever said that York was the best business school in the country is really immature. How can you know that a business school is the ´best´... Give me a break.

York is number one (in reply to: Where is a good school for International Business?)
Good luck getting into York´s Schulich School. It is one of the best business schools in the world (check out Business Week, Financial Times, The Economist and Economics Intelligence Unit Rankings).

Maybe you can try UofT and McGill for business. I know it is easier to get into than York. York´s average entrance rate for Schulich for 2004 was 91.5% and is expected to rise for 2005. McGill´s was 83%.

And for the anonymous post above who mentioned ´immaturity´ as a description of ´not for certain knowing´ that a school is the best is surely unaware of proper adjectives and is also unaware of the rankings for 2005. Please check it out and return to your land of ignorance and stupidity.

Also, York´s Schulich has the highest ratings in the Business Games in Canada for 2003 and 2004 and has recently taken 1st and 2nd place in the International Marketing Competition for Loreal in Paris. Also, I have learned that the Dean of Schulich was voted top dean of the year in the world for 2004.

Finally, USA´s best business school is aruably UPenn´s Wharton School and Northwestern´s Kellog School. York´s Schulich School is officially joint with Kellog for its EMBA (ranked best EMBA in USA/Canada) making it also the number one business school for joint business programs as well as the first to do this in the world. Eat your heart out Queen´s/Cornell !

Thankyou for your time and remember, always think before you write. You don´t want to make a fool of yourself like our friend did.

If anyone wants to argue about this, please email me personally at harthurs@hotmail.com as I will be glad to provide evidence.

Here are the real facts about York and its business school:

"ONTARIO HIGH SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS
To be competitive for admission, students are recommended to achieve a Grade 12 average at least in the high-80s. The minimum admission requirement for Ontario school applicants who submitted satisfactory supplementary forms was 88.5% for Fall 2004 and 90.5% for Fall 2003. Ontario applicants must take a minimum of six Grade 12 U and M courses, including Grade 12 U English, Grade 12 U Advanced Functions and Introductory Calculus, and four more Grade 12 U or M courses. All early offers are conditional. A minimum final grade of 70% is required for English and Calculus as well as a final overall average of above 85%"


CEGEP AND OTHER PROVINCE REQUIREMENTS
Applicants presenting CEGEP credentials are required to have 1 year of studies completed with a minimum of 12 academic courses (high school equivalent courses not accepted). In addition they must present 2 English courses coded "603" or 2 French courses coded "601", plus Calculus 1 and 2. Extra courses can be assessed for potential transfer credits. B.C. applicants to Schulich should present English 12, Principles of Math 12 and a senior level Calculus; each of these courses must be passed at a minimum of 70%.


Remember 89% is the cut-off for Mcgill (If you are from ONtario, cause Ontario high school exams are SOO EASY"..)


To get into Mcgill from other provinces (excluding quebec) you need an 85%. For Quebec applicants it should be like 80% or even lower...(Quebec cegep is much harder).

Now lets have a look at your rankings:

1. Business week 2004-2005:

http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/04/#nonus

York is not even in the top ten OUTSIDE THE U.S!!!! hahahhaha

2. Wall street Journal:

http://www.careerjournal.com/reports/bschool05/glance/20040922-topinternational.html

YOrk is ranked 14th (god knows why...)

3. Financial times

york is ranked 22 (http://www.mbainfo.com/rankings.html)

And is ranked worse than Rotman (U of T)

4. Economist

York is ranked 22nd



**It should be noted that in 2004, YOrk was not even in the top 100 by financial times... (I wonder why...)


In summary, your top ten in the World statement is nonsense. The admission requirements to get into York are lower than that of Mcgill and Queens.
