    With the education you will receive from either one of those institutions you will only be able to use the degree to wipe your ass.

    McEwan would be the more respected school.

  3. Generally it doesn’t matter which school you go to as long as it’s a canadian school, but MacEwan has the better reputation. If you have the option to go through them, that’s my suggestion. Taking a few of the evening courses will also gain you contacts and a bit more of a network than online classes will, something MacEwan evening programs pride themselves on.

  4. Mac ewen is recognized by employers rather than nor quest

  5. McEwan for sure. In addition, NAIT has a good program.

    Macewan all the way

    MacEwan is more reputable and recognized. I had to make this decision on where to attend for my social work program. You would probably get more out of MacEwan. I’ve always heard the staff at Norquest aren’t the greatest.

  8. MacEwan all the way… Many employers won’t recognize Norquest, from my experience.

    I also used to work for MacEwan prior to resigning to raise my children and it truly is a top notch institution with amazing instructors

      Absolutely! In Edmonton there’s only a couple of college/Universities to take courses at. That are reconized in Canada MacEwan, Norquest, and NAIT. Those three are the only ones recognized.

    Always take courses in person. Looks better that way.

    • that’s completely inaccurate. The only reason to take a few of the courses in person is to build a network, something MacEwan is excellent at. I’ve been in recruiting for 5 years and never once have I heard a manager say they don’t want to look at someone because it’s online course. and I’ve heard managers say a lot of dumb things.

  10. NAIT now has a great degree program but it is in class!!
