I got to know about Dalhousie university from my Canadian resident relative. He highly recommended me to opt for the BCom course in McGill's Desautels Faculty of Management. As it is recognized as one of the best international business schools in Canada. I had applied at the University by filling out an online application form with an application fee of $115. I had also applied to several other Canadian colleges, but this one was my first choice. I scored 96% in my 12th which helped me get through the admission process.
My course delivered the skills needed by emerging leaders. Here, they offer Majors, Honours, and Minors through the Desautels Faculty of Management's BCom Program. The subjects included in my curriculum are business administration, financial management, accountancy, mathematics, and economics. The course provided me with in-depth knowledge about the subject and helped me to gain skills in marketing and management.
