Hi,

I have an admit from York Univ: Schulich and Iow:Tippie.
I dont have a schol from either of them and thats making even harder to decide between the two. I want to specialize in Finance(Corp Finance to be specific). Please help me out here ....I need to make this decision soon. I know I am not contributing much here about my goals etc, but I wanted to get some points on table before I post with what specifically I am looking for in an MBA program.

Please reply !

Best,
Hansy

Hansy,

Bit of a toss-up, I think. I would give a slight nod to York because it has more banks among its top recruiters and places slightly more MBAs in finance roles than Iowa. York's $75K avg. salary isn't bad either (Iowa doesn't say). Your preferences regarding the very different locations of the two schools and the markets you'd be working in afterward should obviously weigh heavily in your decision.

Hi Paul/others,

Well Canada and US have different economies and I guess the general pereception is to head to US cause maybe canadians too strive for that.
For me most important fact would be that I would want a secure job post graduation which I think would be easier in Canada(work permit rules are easier i suppose). I feel there is a negative air in US about the companies sponsoring H1 for International students and I really need someone to convince me otherwise.I'd personally prefer US as it would give me more options later on in life but dont want to wind up with a not so satisfactory first job.
I hope coming out of mid west would not bring out more disadvantages.

Here is what I feel where two school stands:
Tippie : Internship opportunities
Schulich : No (its 16 month course..back to back terms)

Tippie : Location (Mid west ..now everyone wants to be in Big towns I feel)
Schulich :Location (Toronto..financial hub of Canada)

Tippie : Recruiting companies ( I dont see many major financial firms, from what I know there are more of Insurance companies..I want to know how well placed would a Finance MBA be in an Insurance firm)
Schulich : Recruiting companies (major financial firms)

Tippie : Avg Sal 75k (USD)
Schulich : Avg Sal 75k(CSD)

Phew ! I guess thats all I have to add unless there are some stellar points anyone can come up with in favour of either of 'em.

Paul and others Please respond.

Thanks
Hansy

It's your call, my friend. I stand by my earlier suggestion.
