Hey Everyone,

I'd love some input here. I'm a Canadian-American. I've lived in the U.S. for most of my life, but want to live in Canada post-MBA. I've been admitted to a top-15 U.S. program, and my career goals involve strategic management, renewable energy, and management consulting. I know that networking and recruiting are vital to post-graduate success.

I've looked at Employment Reports for Canadian MBA's and they're just not competitive. I don't believe I can achieve my career goals by attending Rotman, for example.
What are the prospects of being hired by a global company like GE or BCG for a Canadian role? They recruit at these schools, but perhaps not for my desired location.
How difficult would it be to find a job in Canada on a pay scale similar to what U.S. grads make?
How willing are schools to assist in an international job search?

Best,
Will

Thanks for the question. You may know some of this - in my experience the Canadian companies tend to place less value on the MBA and more so on the experience/proven track record since the market is much smaller both in terms of MBA's and in terms of jobs.

Similarly, what I am hearing from the Rotman grads is that the salary they are being offered does not compare to the one you would get in the US.

I think if you want a good/great/better than average salary in Canada, you almost have to take the US route and just see about getting transferred to the Canadian office after you recruit in the US. That actually seems the easiest method besides networking the heck out of it.

P.S. Congrats on the top 15!
