Hey JadewoodStock

Although I wasnt interviewed by Antoinette, the common questions would be Why MBA, Why McGill, Why Canada, Your short term and long term goals, a walkthrough of your resume and personal experiences- the why's are important, your alternate plans- Plan B/C/D. And in the end if you have questions to ask the interviewer.

Best,

Hi All,

I am writing to seek some advice- have been admitted to Desautels MBA program starting fall 2015. I also have an admit from Sauder and am a little confused on which one to accept. It will be great if you can share your thoughts/ experience about the school. Some of my specific questions I am grappling with are:
1. My personal preference is to stay in the east, and my aim is to find a job in Toronto post my MBA. While both Sauder and Desautels are in other cities, I feel that Montreal will be closer to Toronto, more aligned in terms of economy, and easier to travel to in case of job interviews etc. I am discounting Montreal since I do not know even elementary french.
2. Coming to french, I wonder how much of a handicap would it be in terms of my experience in Desautels/ McGill and also in finding internship/ jobs etc if i do not know french. I am of course open to learning but don't expect to become good enough in 20 months.
3. Program length- The brochure says that the course is for 20 months. However, it does not mention what is the length of the internship. Sauder is a 16 month program with 4 months of internship. Jonathan had mentioned that it is 20 months but can be completed in 16 months. For financial reasons as well as personal reasons, I would like to complete the program as soon as possible. Do you if that is possible at Desautels. If i can get to do 4 months of additional internship as a part of the coursework (apart from the 4 months of summer internship), that would be fine for me.
4. Are there any chances for MBA students to find any on-campus work- teaching assistantship, research etc.

Lastly, any advise for an international student like me would be very helpful, including on how much I should plan to budget for living expenses.

Sincerely,

Gaurav

Hola everyone,
I have also received an admit today. However, I am in some doubt which college to choose. Need some help.
1. I am admitted to Mcgill with a scholarship.
2. I am admitted to Schulich york without a scholarship.
3. I am admitted to Illinois with a scholarship.
4. I am admitted to Melbourne business school without a scholarship.

As for my career goals, I would like to do major in Strategy management with minor in finance. I am from India with 4 years work experience. Please, any advice would be helpful.

Hey Buddy,

It all depends what you want to get out of MBA. For the kind of roles, Schulich and McGill both would suffice, dont know about Illinois. The US market is better than canada, but Canada has better immigration laws, so youve got to stack them side by side and decide what you need.

If the discussion boils down to Schulich and McGill- Opportunities in your prefferred sector, University Experience, Alumni reach, Finances, Language (French), Profs, Research funding/options/Placements and Internships/ and City!
Please consider these parameters!

Cheers! and good luck
