Size of US job market/economy vs CDN [#permalink] New post 01 Jul 2012, 09:08
Hi everyone,

I'm Canadian (from Toronto) and am currently trying to decide between applying to CDN MBA programs within the Toronto area (i.e. Rotman) versus programs in the US at the lower end of the Top 20 (UNC-KF, McCombs, Tepper, USC, Georgetown). I've heard a lot of comments about "go where you think you want to be working right after grad" because you'll likely get the most value out of going to a regional school there for the first 5 years after graduation.

So my question I guess pertains more to the respective sizes of the job markets available in the US versus in Toronto. I know Toronto is the financial hub of Canada and where the vast majority of business activity flows through. But the US economy just by sheer size, I would imagine, would provide a tremendous number of employment/career opportunities that we just don't have access to here in Toronto. So my question - by going to schools like UNC, McCombs, Tepper, USC, or Georgetown, being that those are more regional schools than anything, would I likely have access to a much larger pool of employment opportunities than going to, say, Rotman in Toronto? I guess this is my dilemma - it's still about the 'location' of the school, but more specifically about the US vs CDN job markets and how much of a larger pool of opportunities I'd get in the US versus Canada.

Thanks in advance!

I'm doing similar research myself these days. The current rate for job growth is much higher in the U.S. than in Canada, you can do some googling and read up on it.

Look at the sectors that are on the rise, job wise. For Canada, those would be mining and healthcare. Do a lot of homework before you decide. p.s. nice gmat score! I'm hoping to break 700 myself. Best of luck
