Anons, would you recommend going to a real uni or going to a tech college where I can also get a bachelors?

I want to get into finance but there is no finance bachelors at the tech college but they do have:
>Accounting
>Civil/Mechanical/Electrical engineering
>CS

Should I just go to a real uni or go to the much cheaper tech college and get a bachelors without having to do bullshit courses not related to my major?

Also if I want to get into venture capital, will an accounting degree work?

No. Accounting is required to do finance, but finance is basically its own field that's way more steeped in analysis and decision making. VC is highly competitive and they would never hire someone with a fucking technical school degree.

But honestly what do you recommend out of all those degrees I mentioned. Or should I go to a uni instead? If I go to the tech school I won't have any debt though and the engineering degrees are legitimate and you get that fucking ring thing that all canadian engineers get

Go to a state school, should be cheap. Or, go to community college, then transfer to a state school to get the state school degree for even cheaper. Also, don't study accounting. That is for boring brainlets, trust me, you don't want to be that guy who went into accounting for money.
Out of Engineering, pick the flavor that you enjoy and you'll do alright. CS is in danger of being heavily outsourced. Russian devs are general higher quality than most American CS grads (because your TA's are pajeets) and Vitali has no problem doing your job for nothing.

-t Went to elite liberal arts college, and while it helped, it didn't help enough to justify the price had I not been on scholarship.

>> No.13495569

>>13495516
Yeah accounting sounds boring but it's pretty much the only option from that tech school and the commute is short and I wouldn't have any debt and would finish it in 3 years tops.

But I suppose I'll do CC and then transfer to uni to do actuarial science or something.

Honestly I'd love to become an IB eventhough the hours are pretty high but I'm a Canadacuck so the only way for me to get into IB is get into this competitive program called pmf that only accepts 15 people to get to work at some NYC or Toronto firm. Besides that, business grads where I live usually become accountants or even worse-clerks, tellers and financial analysts

Don't bank on IB. It's an entire crapshoot based on who actually gets the interview, and if they like you you'll get the job. Contrary to what /biz/ tells you, IB hires for fit. Most junior analysts / summer interns are taught what they really need to know on the job. If you aren't lucky enough to get interviewed by the boutique firm that you'd fit in at, you're not getting IB. Do not chase the name of the firm you want to work at, you want to work at a firm that treats you like a human being. Despite what /biz/ will tell you, 110k+30k bonus isn't exactly making it in NYC. 60-70k+20k bonus isn't "making it" in Chicago. People let themselves get hazed for a few years then jump ship to PE where they actually start saving.

Realistically, if you ENJOY engineering, do engineering, get on with a good firm that pays high for area, and build a life. Plus, if you can manage to swing mining engineering in Canada you can work 2 weeks on 2 weeks off up in the territories for massive fucking money. No one cares where you went for your undergrad. Go to the state school, get a 4.0, and get on with a good engineering firm.
