Why you should choose Guelph…
The programs within the College of Business and Economics are filled with knowledgeable, accomplished academics who are also nice people. Unlike some programs where graduate students are treated like they're just a number, at Guelph graduate students are treated like colleagues. It's a nice environment to be in while receiving a top-notch education.
