Subject: York or Ryerson
Got accepted to York- Economics and Ryerson- business Management (I live in Toronto)
i was wondering which program would be better in terms of job finding and also which school is better in terms of campuses and students?

You should go to York if you´re more interested in campus and student life. Ryerson´s pretty small compared to the other Universities in Toronto and I´ve found that 1st year at Ryerson is like High School. There are some that don´t take the school the school seriously but they´re usually kicked out by 2nd year... they´re the ones that act like the stupid teenagers you see on the streets and give Ryerson the rep of being a ´high school´ (see: Rye-High)

But in terms of education and jobs, I would choose Ryerson because of the practicality of the program. I can´t speak for York because I´ve never taken any courses at that University but at Ryerson, most of the courses are practical and could be applied directly to the field you´re persuing. I´m in my senior year at Ryerson and have already had a couple non-crappy summer jobs. (I was a business analyst and planning analyst at a bank and government office.) They were ´non-crappy´ jobs because I was actually using crap I learned in University in my daily responsibilities.

But if you´re planning to get a masters or a professional designation, it doesnt matter which University you go to since both lead to the same end result.

What was your specialization in the Ryerson BComm?
