I am deciding on where i want to go to university next year. I am deciding between McGill Desautels (hopefully honours in investment management), Queens commerce, and Western Ivey HBA. My goal is to be recruited to a big bank in NYC right out of school, get an MBA and go work for a hedge fund.
pro's for McGill: Internationally renowned, big city, fun night life, great residency, ok recruitment, and great exchange program.
cons for McGill: not the top business school, not the best recruitment but those who do get recruited generally stay in Montreal, and it is an expensive city to live in.
Pro's for Queens; a great business school, good job placement (but idk how many people got internships or jobs in an nyc bank), good school spirit
cons for queens: small town, not the best residency, not very well known, small university
pros for western ivey: great job placement in finance, lots of recruiting, party school, supposedly great program, opportunity for a double degree in 5 years.
cons for western ivey: small town, 2 + 2 program, might not get into ivey if i cant maintain a high GPA,
I would love any and all opinions about these schools and which one would help me achieve my goal of becoming an investment banker.
