Hi,

My GMAT score is 650 and I have more than 4 years of work experience. Currently in advertising and have done my Bachelor of Arts in Economics. Looking to do a 12-16 month course.

I am looking at Canadian Schools, planning to apply to the following:
- Sauder
- Schulich

I am confused between some of the safe schools I have shortlisted:
- SFU (Beedie)
- Ted Rogers
- Alberta

Any help would be great!

Thanks!

Hi AnushkaG, thanks for your question. Beyond what you HAVE done, what do you see yourself doing going forward?
As that informs school selection.

I am looking at Canadian Schools, planning to apply to the following:
- Sauder avg gmat there about 646)
- Schulichavg gmat here about 660)
Have you considered Ivey also?
I am confused between some of the safe schools I have shortlisted:
- SFU (Beedie)avg gmat in range of 550-700)
- Ted Rogers avg gmat about 625
- Alberta avg gmat about 630

Any help would be great!
So these schools are in the range you set for GMAT but beyond GMAT, spend some time thinking about WHAT you want to do post MBA and then WHICH program has the most innovative offerings for those goals.
Thanks!

Thank you so much for the detailed response on this one. I'm looking to get into the consumer products goods industry as a Brand Manager. Would you have any idea about which schools would be the best for that?

This guide might help you sort out the pros/cons of several programs in Canada: http://touchmba.com/best-mba-programs-c ... HeadToHead and Rotman does offer a brand management concentration. I also encourage you to look at the recruiting firms for each of the programs on your list and that will help you sort out which program has more of the recruiting relationships you are looking for.
