International Business at Carleton?
Hey there everyone!
Recently, a Carleton rep came to my school, and did the usual presentation, but also told a bit about her own respective major; International Business. She said that she took a language course as well as a semester abroad, along with her regular business courses.

I'm going to be taking the Grade 12 International Business course next year, and am also completing the International Certificate program at my school.

Although unsure, I'm really interested in this subject, so if anyone in the International Business program could tell me their experiences, it would be amazing!

Thanks so much!

University of Toronto Scarborough
Hey, I've been doing some research on the UTSC Management and International Business Co-op and have become really interested, especially since I believe that I have a good chance of getting in with my marks/EC's. 

Anyways, I have a few questions about the campus and student life, in addition to the program. 

SO - 
1) - Can anyone speak to the program from first hand experience on here. I'd love to get some personal experiences.
2) - What is the campus life like? (I don't live in the area so I would have to live in res) I have read that the buildings aren't great and located in a sketchy part of town? (I haven't had a chance to go myself yet, but if I can legitimately see myself going there I would go visit)
3) - I've yet to see many posts about this program on this page - I can't find admissions numbers (# of students admitted) - does this program have a good rep? (I know that you graduate with a degree saying U of T no matter the campus which is probably a big advantage) 

Sorry for the long post. Any answers would be helpful.
