The cons of the programme includes:
1. It is only a one year programme so you can only get a one year work permit. Studying for 16 months gives 3 years of work permit so you may lose out in this sense.
2. The COOP of this programme is relatively new so there are not much compatible companies to match with.
3. The timeline of the programme is quite tight so you don't really have time to digest and absorb what you have learnt although content taught is very valuable. At the same time, content is not very in depth due to the time limit so you cannot go deep into learning finance or big data.
