I know bro but considering the energy sector's situatuion ,i am actually surprised that some companies did recruit. But once the oil prices do rebound,i can foresee these numbers going up.

Nope, going to be very generic ones to test your communication. Just relax, use the practice ones and jump straight in. All the very best.

My preference would be [Alberta, Sauder] > Telfer.. I guess Telfer is little bit slow.. it's been long I submitted all documents but no response so far..

Hi Everybody,

I was trying to look how the post MBA careers might shape up after Alberta MBA.

I am from the technology background and have worked with firms like Infosys, IBM and currently with Oracle.

If i wish to take forward my career in consulting, is Alberta MBA good?

Looking at the specializations offered, I feel it is not suitable for me.

Finance

Innovation & Entrepreneurship

International Business

Natural Resources, Energy & Environment

Public Policy & Management

Sustainability

Appreciate any pointers on this. Anybody here from the tech background and have applied to this college?

Also, if somebody can tell me which school in canada is most suitable for pursuing a career in technology/consulting.

Any help anybody?

I am holding on to my application to hear back on this factor. I had called up Christopher Lynch (Sr. Director, Recruitments) and he suggested to me that I should consider going ahead with my MBA in general management.

Now I am not really sure, how this will turn out.

I am worried companies might not recruit people if they do not have any exposure in the field of consulting. Though a 3 month specialization will not help you become an expert in the field, but it is always better to know something than nothing. Another thought lingering in my mind is If i have to really move across locations to build my network and get myself jobs if I am looking at consulting as my post-MBA career path.

Appreciate your inputs everybody!

Regards,
Vijay

Hey bro...i am not from an IT background. So i cant comment much on this..But having talked to an alumni from Alberta, he is optimistic about consulting opportunities in Alberta(he is from IT background and he is doing a general MBA)...Plus i have posted employment statistics in one of my previous posts....19% have gotten into consulting based on that...So that should give you a fare idea i believe...Plus,u can always move towards Ottawa or Toronto post mba to look for roles that fit you in case you are not happy in alberta..
