CANADA TOP MBA PROGRAMS SCHULICH VS HEC MONTREAL [#permalink] New post 21 Jun 2011, 18:53
Hello,

I have been accepted to both programs! Which one should I choose?

I live in Montreal and would probably like to work there post-mba, but I would not mind working in Toronto especially if it's for a good job. HEC doesn't seem to participate in many rankings while Schulich is strongly positioned in many reputed rankings(10th in the world!!! as of the last economist review)

However, reading comments over the internet, there are mix reviews about Schulich. Lots of individuals seem to say that it is very overrated. Any truth to that? As far as HEC, there are not that many comments over the internet, but consensus say that the teachers are very strong. Also, since I live in Montreal, I would pay next to nothing because the school receives governmental subsities. HEC --> $7,000 (31,000 for international students) while Schulich --> $54,000.

Note I have 13 yrs of work experience. Just arrive as imigrant and want to do a full time program. I am more interested in strategy, general management and business development. Honestly, I believe that Schulich may be a better fit because its standings but HEC Montreal intenstive one year program its very atractive, altough the tuition difference is hard to ignore.

Help please!

Thanks,

JC

I may be too late, but here goes -

I'm from Montreal as well, currently working in Toronto... and to be honest, I think HEC Montreal commands far more respect than Schulich would in Montreal. In terms of reputation, Schulich is basically the Ontario equivalent to John Molson in Quebec - if you know what I mean. I don't know what they base the rankings on, but the general feedback I've received about York/Concordia is not that great. HEC Montreal students are apparently not the cream of the crop either but in general they're a lot more respected in Quebec.

To be honest neither can be labeled as "Canada Top MBA Programs". The top are Richard Ivey, Rotman, Queen's and maybe even Desautels.
