Hi Atush,

I have not heard the names of these b-schools, and haven't seen them on any of the popular rankings either. I would like to understand further why you have selected these b-schools? Even if you are willing to spend $25,000 on your MBA, that's still a lot of money - you can use it 1-2 years later after strengthening your profile and applying to some ranked MBA programs.

Eventually, you would want association with an MBA program which will get you an aspirational job and give you a lifelong network. Maybe these b-schools can give these to you - I don't know, but it will be worthwhile for you to further explore the opportunities that you should expect after these programs.

Why not get a loan? It's not too hard to get a student loan here in Canada.

To be honest, going to unreputable schools might not get you anywhere which means it'd be 25k$ down the drain - whereas if you go to a more reputable school, you may make that money difference back quickly.

Of course, it depends on what you're planning to do after MBA and how ambitious you are. If you just want a career change and nothing else (no investment banking, management consulting, or taking on some high-responsibility/stress job in general), it might make sense to just go for some cheap, no-name programs.

Have you thought of HEC Montreal? It's pretty reputable in Quebec (but ONLY in Quebec) while being dirt cheap.

OR, study harder, spend a couple hundred bucks on an online course/online prep tests like Knewton or GMATClub's CATs (I got both for 350$ using GMATClub's discount), go crazy studying and bump your GMAT up to either 1. get a scholarship at those lower-ranked schools or 2. get into a better ranked school. A couple of months' studying for a better future, that's a pretty good investment imo.

Good luck!

you are correct. I want to do Masters to change career stream, I have been working in technical stream since 3 years but did not like it a single day also.
Now I want to change it as earlier as possible. And I selected these B-Schools because I am aware that even though spending $50 K + will not guarantee a job after MBA. So I want to spend amount which I can afford practically.

I am also interested in research based management programs but I am unable to find good programs in Canada.
