Profile evaluation for Canadian B-schools [#permalink] New post 04 Oct 2013, 10:20
Hi everyone,

I had recently graduated from B-school and got my MSc. in International Business from HULT International Business school in USA. I am now considering to take MBA from of the best Canadian B-schools, which one do you recommend base on my profile and my decision criteria?

Target Schools:
Desautels (McGill) , HEC Montereal, John Molson (Concordia University) , Alberta, Haskayne (University of Calgary), Sauder (University of British Colombia), Beedie (Simon Frasier University)

Decision Criteria:(by order)
1.Tuition fee
2. Available scholarships
3. Job opportunity for international graduates
4. University reputation among the companies
5. Program Specialization (Project MGT or Supply Chain are my desired fields for study and work)

My Profile:
Bsc. Industrial Engineering - GPA 3.10 (Iran)
MSc. International Business - GPA 3.15 (USA)
2 Years of experience in Oil and Gas industry (Project MGT)
1 Year of experience in Solar Energy Industry (Biz Analyst)
GMAT: 550 ( I will retake it in Nov, with aim of 700)
Currently I am working with a start-up Co. in San Francisco Bay Area as researcher

Thank you all in advance for your cooperation.

Hi Shahin,

Thanks for your post. Regarding your application, the largest recommendation I have is regarding your GMAT score. I do recommend you take the test again. One thing that is important to remember is that on your application, your highest score is self-reported, which is why admissions teams focus on your best score. There is no harm in taking the test again.
