EXPERTS PLEASE HELP - MBA ADMISSION [#permalink] New post 07 Jun 2010, 05:49

I have a query regarding the Corporate Redidency MBA program offered by Dalhousie University - HALIFAX, CANADA. I know, it doesnt have good ranking but the positive thing I found in this is 8 months corporate residency in leading firms. I found it beneficial bcos I came to Canada recently and doesnt have Canadian experience although I have significant international experience.

Can anyone guide me that whether Experience or Ranking of the school counts to secure job after MBA. Moreover, i got accepted in Degroote school of business- MCmaster University- Hamilton too.

Please guide me which one I should go for, or I should try for other good ranking programs..

Thanks in advance,

Technically it shouldn't have any ranking right now; anything you read about Dal's MBA will be based on their old program (which was just scrapped after 40+ years).

Unfortunately for us at the moment, the first class is still only like 12 months into the 22 month program... so it's hard to determine the "hired" rates and salaries. Although I do know that my classmates are making some really good impressions on their current Corporate Residency employers and there will likely be a bunch of them that will be hired back when they graduate. Of course, this is speculation (plus I have a biased point of view :) ).

We've done some pretty insane stuff though, such as the weekend long unstructured business simulation... ever hear of Dr. Zimbardo's famous Stanford Prison Experiment? It was a tamer version of that, with 8 teams locking horns or working together in a completely rules-free scenario. I plan to do a little blog series and maybe a video on that over the summer, because it truly exemplifies some of the stuff that is done that demonstrates the uniqueness of the program.

Anyway, I'll stop the sales pitch and let others answer your question. Please PM me if you have any questions/concerns at all!
