Carlson Vs Rotman - Which to choose ? [#permalink] New post 06 Jun 2013, 23:29
I have been accepted at Carlson and Rotman and quite confused on which to choose. I am looking for specialization in entrepreneurship as I am coming from a family business background and have a solid 5 years of experience in IT and Food/Hospitality industry. Post MBA I would like to work for a couple of years and then come back here to join the business. While both are not the top bschools with entrepreneurship specialization, I have also been waitlisted in Babson and Babcock. In case I get Babson, should I drop these two and switch over to that. On the whole I checked out the course work as well and it seems there doesn't seem to be too much of a difference between all these schools and the teaching method remains the same. I have also been in touch with few people from all these schools and everything seems similar. So which would be more suitable for my profile ? Any suggestions would be of great help.

Well, the first two things I would ask are:
1. Where do you want to work after graduation? (what region)
2. Where do you want to work after graduation? (what industry, what employer)

Carlson, Rotman Babson are all excellent programs, and arguments could be made for each. But ultimately I think it comes down to: okay, which school will get me what I need/want?

So get back to me, and I'll do my best to advise you further.

1.Since I am international applicant, I am more leaned towards where I can get more opportunities related to my target industry. I have plans to join my family business few years down the line and expand it on a large scale, so a program that focuses on entrepreneurship and a work experience which broadens my knowledge in general management, strategy and operations would be of great help.
2.My current job is to improve the performance of our organization by improving the services, analyzing the sales data, reports etc and provide new ideas, which include opportunity identification, planning, projections, and implementation. I want to expand my overall knowledge in these aspects, so I am looking for Consulting roles in strategy and operations.

Well, first question: do you want to live in the US or Canada??
:) If that doesn't matter, my tendency would lean to Carlson. It's s lightly more selective program, with better hiring statistics and higher salaries (which is a bit normal, given that it is in the US). Both can help you reach your goals (every school has folks going into consulting), but like I wrote, I think thought about location preferences and where you want to work for the next few years should probably play a big role in your decision.

Hope this helps,
