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. 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 --> $6,500 while Schulich --> $48,000.
Note that I don't have much of an interest for i-banking. I am more interesting in general management and marketing. Honestly, I believe that Schulich may be a better fit because it is a 16-20 month program while HEC Montreal is an intenstive one year program, but the tuition difference is hard to ignore. Also, some Schulich reviews are starting to scare me a bit.
HEC Montreal is a great business school, however, its MBA program is not very well known outside QUEBEC.
On the other hand, Schulich seems to be strong in Marketing & Entrepreneurship, and has a very good reputation even outside North America. Who knows, you might get a great opportunity to work in Dubai or Hong Kong after graduation.
Personally, I strongly recommend Schulich over HEC Montreal as I believe that Schulich's high ranking will help a lot to find good job in shot time.
Brother looking at your situation my advice will be HEC for you rather than York if you want to stay in Canada and work there only because: a- Near your home and family b-Economical c- Has good reputation in Quebec d- One year course finishes at quicker pace and sooner you will be earning. e- Not much will be the salary package difference because toronto's cost of living is more and your re location expenses will eat away your salary
But if you want a global career go for YORK because its better known outide
