Subject: Seneca or BCIT for Business
I want to study business and eventually get my CGA designation. I have narrowed my choice down to Seneca or BCIT (in Vancouver) Which is the better choice and why? Serious replies please.

You can´t get a CGA designation with a College diploma. To be an Accountant you need to go to University. Why are you settling for so little... Seneca College. You graduate in two years, what do you expect to learn in that time period? You won´t make any money if you go for business at a College, especially Seneca College. A College graduate will not compete effectively against a University graduate in programs such as Business.

For Accounting go to The University of Waterloo or The University of Toronto. Both are great in Accounting. A College Diploma will get you no where in life. Some people will say that a good thing about College is you graduate faster... true... but, it will just prove to people that you couldn´t handle University which is much, much, MUCH harder than College. The University of Toronto is known to be a University in which to obtain decent grades (very difficult to get an A or even a B. If you go to College you have a much greater opportunity to get amazing grades... A´s. Hope this helps, and I´m not talking shit, this is all true.

I come from a poor family and very likely have to work while attending school. I want to see payback that´s not going to take 10 or more years. Waterloo and Toronto may be right for some people but from what I hear, they are too much on theory, and not enough on practical. Besides, many colleges and universities now have diploma completion programs that will allow me to continue later on in my career. That means I can do my education in stages. I can also attend night school and have my employer pay for those additional CGA courses. What do you think?

I still think you should go to University if you want to be a CGA. An employer will surely favor a University graduate over a College graduate in the field of Accounting. Honestly, only go to College for hands-on stuff like Wood-working or Cooking. But, programs such as Accounting, a University education is much more beneficial to you. I´m like 100% sure you can´t become a CGA with a College education. You need a 4 years Bachelor´s University education minimum to become a CGA, in addition working towards a CGA. The prerequisites for a CGA is a bachelor´s degree... 4 years.

There are accounting jobs at all levels from book-keeping to auditor. Not all of these accounting jobs require a professional accounting designation. With a college diploma, you can find work in various capacities. If you go to a college first, you´ll get a taste of what the work would be like because of the hands-on approach. Many colleges and universities also offer post-diploma education options leading to bachelor degrees in accounting. For example, BCIT offers a BTech in accounting that can be completed part-time while you work.

Ignore the fools who mock a college education. They´re just a bunch of snobs who don´t know better.

sorry to say this, but a btech or a applied degree is still considered inferior compared to a bba or a bcom.

You guys dissing college got it all wrong. Don´t go to university to get a jaaaab. Go to college for that. It´s what colleges are set up for, skills training. You go to university to pursue pure knowledge or research, not to get a jaaaab.

It´s no wonder so many university graduates end up at Seneca or BCIT after graduation. They need job skills that pay the rent.

^ these people are correct, whoever you are reading.

university is for intelleut reasons, and college is for jobs.

so if you´re in york and think you need a job, time to transfer to seneca.
