Rotman vs Sauder vs Weatherhead ($) [#permalink] New post 22 Mar 2014, 23:13

I need an opinion on the choice I need to make to start my MBA this year.

I have secured an admit in the following three business schools:

1. Rotman School of Management (University of Toronto, Canada)
2. Sauder School of Business (University of British Columbia, Canada)
3. Weatherhead School of Management (Case Western Reserve University, USA) - 50% Scholarship

I am an Automation Engineer from New Delhi, India. I aim to enter high-tech product management in e-commerce, tech or consumer goods industry. In the short term, location is not too important for me as I want to transition into the new role first.

I want your opinion to help me weigh the pros and cons of the three schools, although my first choice would be Rotman, due to its No.1 ranking in Canada, it's friendly loan program (no co-signer for intl students), an innovative curriculum, and it's Toronto location.

Sounds like you have answered your own question ;) Seriously, it's often the school you feel you have the best fit that is the best choice. One thing I would ask is where do you want to work after school--if it's in Canada, you'd be better off going to school there, since that's where your network will be. If you want to work in the US, then I'd go to Case Western since the network and the job recruiters will mostly be in the US as well. People underestimate the value of the post MBA network in many cases. Most graduates remain within a 10 hour drive of their business school, so the network is heavy in that circle and helps you for years to come.
