Profile evaluation for Canadian B-schools [#permalink] New post 04 Oct 2013, 10:21
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 writing here

I have good and not so good news for you now.

First good news, Your profile is interesting for all of the schools mentioned. For your kind of profile, you can have an opportunity to choose schools out of the ones listed by you (provided you score in GMAT 650+, score of 550 diminishes effectiveness of profile on the face of application)

But you really need to understand what you wanna do with your MBA ? I mean you should be clear about :

1) Your goals - short term and long term
2) Area within Canada you wan to settle at

For example - HEC and McGill are better rather obvious choices if you want to be a part of Montreal. Every area has core competence in terms of industry as well, so it is better for you to decide what you want to do, in which industry and in which region of canada you wanna settle in.

Once you have answers of above questions, start evaluating the schools.

Tuition fees and Scholarship opportunities are very relative and can only be explored once you are aware about the points i have explained earlier.

Canada is very welcoming country, I would say "Heaven" for international students if you wanna work in Canada after your studies.

To be honest with you, these are second tier schools (except McGill), you are missing the other biggies - Rotman, Schulich, Queens and Ivey. But again, I would suggest to focus on first part of my response and then we can decide the further path (choosing schools, fees etc)

Schulich Business Schools is well known for Supply Chain Management programs

Hope this helps, feel free to PM me or write here for further discussion (if you need any help)

Good Luck

Thanks
