I'm 28 years old. Graduated from Pune University, Pune, India with Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engg. and Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, US with Masters Degree in Computer Science. More than 4 years full-time work experience (2 years on OPT and 2+ years on H1B Work Visa) combination of both full-time software developer as well as consultant.

My references from my former employers and transcripts from universities are ready.
GMAT due: third week of Jan'18.

I'm findin it difficult in deciding which full-time MBA graduate program in Canada to go with as my tuition budget is constrained to CAD 50K.

Waterloo
Lazaridis
Telfer
Alberta
DeGroote
Haskayne
Beedie
John Molson
Edwards

Are these options good for me?
Thank you for your valuable inputs and suggestions, in advance.

Best,
Sv

Hi Svaanand

From the choices that you have mentioned, I would recommend Alberta.
You could check the prospects for other schools by talking to the students
who have passed out from those schools. You could reach out to those
students on LinkedIN or contact the student ambassadors to these schools
to understand which of these schools are a better fit for you.

Hope this helps you!

P.S Moving the topic to the appropriate forum.

Hi SV,

I don’t think tuition budget should be the starting point or driving force behind selection of schools. You should also include one or more reputed Canadian programs such as Rotman, McGill, and Schulich, even if some of them are stretch. The RoI of a reputed program in the medium to long term will be higher.

Hi 99Colleges,
Thank you for pointing this out. I was skeptic about the RoI from Ivy League Universities in Canada based on some of "not-so-great" experiences of my friends in the US who graduated from their respective Ivy Leagues.
But, I'll definitely rethink on updating my list by adding programs like Rotman, McGill and Schulich (since my GMAT score will also be a crucial factor which will change the course of my application, I see my IETLS/TOEFL shall be exempted as I have a Masters Degree from one of the universities in the United States).
Such suggestions really encourage applicants like me to aim higher and I heartily thank you for that.

Best,
Sv

Hi there,
I don't know these schools well, but if rankings matter to you, you should probably be looking at programs like Rotman, Ivey, Schulich, Sauder etc. Obviously rankings are not the only criteria, you should do you research and select the best fit for you.
