If you are under 18, staying in Europe is better for partying.

On what basis do you conclude that one program is "better"? The quality of an education any student gets, in any discipline, is 99.99% based on what the student does, not where they do it.


I've studied at McGill, and have friends who have studied at the John Molson School of Business. From an academic viewpoint (subject matter) the John Molson School of Business does have a better reputation than McGill when it comes to the business program.

I'm going on exchange to Montreal for only one semester. Therefore I do not want your opinion on which school has the best overall program. Instead I want to know which school is best when it comes to these factors: location and social life.


If all you want is to party, then go with McGill. They have a nice campus in downtown Montreal. I recall many good times there. Lots of student parties, and on campus activities like beer drinking tournaments and flag football games.

I disagree. McGill is world renowned. Few people outside of Quebec have even heard of the John Molson School of Business. John Molson doesn't even have a reputation, let alone a better one than McGill.

Partly true. I agree in that McGill is world renowned. See my prior post below.

However, when it comes to a local reputation, specifically from the business industry, then the John Molson School of Business ranks higher. The business program there from an academic perspective is better than McGill's and the business industry here knows it. It's MBA program is ranked 3rd in Canada. Not to mention it's Investment Management Program there which is tops.

So if you want to work in Montreal, go to JMSoB, if you want to get hired anywhere else in the world, go to McGill, ceteris paribus.
