Another “top schools” inquiry

I was wondering: which schools (colleges/universities) are the best when it comes to advertising? I was thinking Ryerson, Centennial and Sheridan. How good is the job market for advertising?

intro Another top schools inquiryThe two Canadian schools that churn out good writers and art directors consistently are still OCAD and Humber, in Toronto. In the States, the best school going is the VCU Ad Center in Richmond, Virginia; they offer a two year Masters program that is so sophisticated, run by some of the biggest names in the business, the graduates come out feeling like they have three years of real-life experience. Of course, that all comes with quite a price tag. Check out their site, though, for a look. How good is the job market? It’s tough. Many would say discouraging. So the better your education, the more competitive you tend to be.
