Doesn’t McGill also have a pretty baller business program? I met a few McGill finance students when I did an exchange in Hong Kong, and they made it seem like their program was the shit.
Typically, regardless of your major, you’re going to have to take certain courses that are required for all majors. I think that’d be a good time to figure out if you truly enjoy a subject or if your perception of the subject isn’t what it really is.
In the end, you could always double major. I’m a finance major, but I wish I had also majored in psychology. Like you, I’m completely fascinated by how the mind works.
Concordia has a better economics/business program.
For engineering, go for Concordia or McGill.
Medicine and law go for McGill.
Business/economics go for Concordia.
I’m a McGill business grad (and a finance major). As far as “which is better”, it really depends on what you plan on using that degree for. Sure you may think that the business program is better at Concordia, but McGill is the better brand overall without a doubt. JMSB has a very strong name within Quebec, however now that I’m out in the real world and outside of Quebec, it’s not spoken of in the same light as Ivey, Schulich and even McGill (Desautel). I’m heading to grad school in the US in September and I know that having McGill on my diploma meant more to them than Concordia would have. Regardless, this isn’t a “which is the better biz school” debate.
OP: I’m assuming you’re on the MacDonald campus and if so, you’re right…it’s very difficult to take electives on the main campus unless you are able to create your schedule in such a way that you’re on Mac M/W/F and main T/Th. Trying to commute between the two on the same day would be a pain in the ass.
I agree with what some of the other posters have said but also, what could you see yourself doing in the future? Sure you’re interested in pyschology, but at the end of the day, do you see yourself doing anything with that degree? If not, minor in it, do a concentration in it, or even just take some sporadic courses to get your fill. Do you see yourself (at least initially after graduation) entering into something that requires a nutrition background? If so, there’s your answer. There’s nothing wrong with taking a wide array of courses to complement your major or to balance you as a person regarding what you want to learn, however at the end of the day, you are spending 3 or 4 years at McGill to get something out of it (a job). What will get you there?
