Hello everyone, I am starting this thread in the hope that others will provide their key inputs on the below.

I am someone with 15 years international experience currently in senior management in operations planning to move to Canada and get a good job in Consulting, Operations or General Management.

Planning to do an EMBA from Canada (as Canadian Employers give more weighting to Canadian MBAs) and have the following choices.

1. Richard Ivey (Accepted into the program)

Program Length - 18 Months
Course Cost - 95000 CAD

2. Schulich-Kellogg (Accepted into the program)

Program Length - 18 months
Course Cost - 110000 CAD (Dual Degree + Airfare to Chicago + Full Lodge and Board on all residential sessions available)

3. Rotmans (Accepted into the program)
Program Length - 13 Months
Course Cost - 88,000 CAD (Discount of 10,000 available if paid before a certain date).

In addition, I also have an option to study 10 months at INSEAD, France and do my EMBA from there.

I am very very confused and wanted some help from others on which is the best course to do..

This is what I have picked up from forums so far !

1. Schulich is marketing vertical college and also relies on heavy marketing to push its rank up in various MBA rankings. The calibre of students is not the best as there are many people who cant even converse well. Interviews are not mandatory. The program is damn good though...with the global, Kellogs and Schulich's electives.

2. Rotman seems to be good but during the interview, the professor hinted to me to keep looking (Amazing hint !!!). The discounted fees seems like a bait to get students.

3. Richard Ivey seems to be best in terms of employer perceptions but the course content is not some unique one.

I have also a choice to study at INSEAD (Already accepted) and then move to Canada to live there. Is INSEAD at all recongnised in Canada or it is worthless doing a course in INSEAD.

I have purposely left Queen off the chart as I dont like their boardroom learning method. I would prefer to study in classroom rather than boardroom connected all over.

Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

You have a remarkable corporate exposure. In global prospective all these targeted Business School drilled by you provide a similar kind of MBA Program. Out of which I would recommend you to target INSEAD the most as per your profile and requirements. INSEAD would be the best among these Business Schools as it is globally recognized.

Richard Ivey is the best Business school in Canada because of its brand name. Case Study Process of Richard Ivey is unique in Richard Ivey Business School. Business cases are the most effective way of learning and cases allow for a focus on broad based business issues rather than studying the theory.

However you would need to cleverly prepare yourself for questions like why you are interested now at this stage of your life for MBA, your rationale behind applying for a specific B school, so on and so forth.
The next step for you is to focus more on your GMAT Score, application essays & recommendations for these Business Schools.

Hence it would be highly advisable to seek assistance from professional consultants for guidance on preparing a good letters of recommendations and get your essays/scholarship essays evaluated before sending it out along with your application.

Feel free to post any other query or concern that you might have.
