    I had one friend that got her BComm FNCE with a 3.9, and she told me when she went to interviews, the best thing the potential employers could say was: "Well, at least you can work well in groups"

    LOL



    Another friend of mine got a MBA in one year from UofC, all he did was use basic regression on some marketing data, and it mystified the profs at his thesis defense, lol!

    Yeah, but sadly, from what I've seen, more SAIT students with their diplomas get jobs than Haskayne students...

    Ugh...last year 99% of U of C business students who wanted a job got a job.

    Personally I'm now majoring in Petroleum and Land Management and like a few other people have said, it's all about your networks and contacts!

    When I say Management I guess I also mean to imply pre-management and economics degrees that are taking the same courses. I just always see lots of cars with beyond stickers parked in lots outside of Scurfield...

    2nd year here. I think the stat on "99% of graduates got jobs" is a little off. From what I heard last year, 90% of the people with a finance degree did NOT get jobs.

    My ex graduated last year with an Insurance and Risk Management Degree and she is now working for State Farm, making salary= to just under $20 an hour, full benefits, holidays, etc.

    I think the finance degree is overrated and over-used now.

    That could be true, but really, who other than the UofC would count line cook at MacDonald's as a job???

    lol that's harsh.

    I feel a lot of ppl IN mgmt don't deserve to be there, that's for sure.
    i know so many of my friends and other people who work much harder but don't get in.
    whatever happened to a system of merit? :P
    most of the students in management are like 2nd or 3rd generation managers in their families and are riding off of their family's name. :thumbdow

    I'm in my 3rd year with Marketing as my concentration.
    I think it is somewhat overrated in that most ppl come into mgmt with high expectations but don't work hard for where they want to end up...
    a lot of ppl also don't have a lot of experience, so that counts as a limiting factor as well in finding a job.

    too many ppl who want to graduate and live the rest of their lives playing golf :P

    How do you figure this?? At least when I was there, your last name didn't have any impact on a) your admission to the faculty and b) your marks.

    I think what he was trying to say is not everyone in management requires a degree to become a manager. Alot of the positions in certain companies aren't determined by your credentials but rather who you know and if you're in a family business you're more than likely going to move up the ladder faster than people that are more qualified than you. It's a term called nepotism.

    A friend of mine was doing a SGMA class last year and he told me one of the people in charge of the Co-Op program for Haskayne came in and gave them a detailed presentation of what employers look for in a potential employee. It was a list of about 20 different things and close to the bottom of that list was GPA, degree obtained was in the middle somewhere. The very top of the list was personality.

    Doesn't matter the credentials and experience...if you can't impress someone in the interview you're not gonna get the job either way. A friend of a friend graduated from DeVry and the way it works there is if you have a high enough GPA they'll hook you up with job interviews, this dude had an insanely high GPA and got so many job interviews given to him but he's a dork and couldn't talk to people. So now after spending over $40K at DeVry he's working at Office Depot downtown on the corner of 5th St and 4th Ave.

    But DeVry sucks ass anyway!!

    Ajay answered it pretty much on the dot.
    A lot of these guys and gals I know will either get a job right away with their parents' company or their parents' will hook them up with a job elsewhere.

    a few weeks ago, our professor in one of my business courses talked about a project in another one of her classes last year where the students had to get into groups of 6 ppl and had to make up business plans and present business proposals; there was one group that was competing for the best proposal.. in her own words: "you could tell they were filthy rich just from their last names because these names are all widely-known in the Calgary business community" just proposed that their parents would pay each of them $5 million EACH to fund the proposed business plan.

    i guess what i'm trying to say is it's unfair that some ppl get a free ride when there are a lot more deserving ppl who should have the opportunity for the education

    I see what you mean now. I hear ya, but my experience and I've been through what you've just described is. It'll catch up to them. Hard work always pays off.
