Hi, I chose Business Technology Management at Wilfried Laurier University, Canada. But I ended up getting Arts with Management Program. I’m not sure of it. Please help me know the job aspects, expected freshmen salary, overall program, and some particular subjects in it which would help me conquer the business world too.

Within the Faculty of Arts, there are many fields of study; do not be confused by the word "arts."  For example, within the Faculty of Arts, you can study math, physics, financial mathematics, data science, and much more.  When you get to the point that you're searching for a job, employers do not exclusively look at your field of study. They will also consider what courses you've taken, your drive, your ability to take initiative, your motivation for wanting that position and to work at their company, your ability to solve problems, your ability to work in a group, your ability to work independently, etc.  Employers never hire based solely on degree title alone. What you do during your studies to show that you have an amazing skill set is key.  Do you get involved in activities? Do you lead or participate in activities? Do you reflect on lessons learned? Are you organized? Are you nice to work with? Can you prioritize and manage your time well? These are all the questions employers will seek in addition to academic knowledge.  Many, many, many students who don't graduate with a degree in Business end up working in that area.  For example, I know of a student who graduated with a degree in computer science and now works at Apple in research. He said his team is made of up people who studied all different areas--psychology, economics, design, history--and that he is the only CS person on his team. He realizes now how robust the conversations are and that this is how Apple makes products so successfully that speak to all minds and all kinds of people.  So, I suppose what I'm saying, is that it's not the word on the paper that matters, but it is instead YOU and your abilities that will matter.
