Hi All,

I would be moving to Canada in Feb'19 as a Permanent Resident and would want to do a 12-16 months course in Analytics or Business. I have digged through various University websites and forums, shortlisting a few courses. (Deadlines in Jan/Feb)

1) Masters of Management Analytics - Rotman (UoT)
2) Masters of Management Analytics - Desautels (McGill)
3) Masters in Business Analytics - Sauders (UBC)
4) MBA in Management of Technology - Ted Rogers (Ryerson)
5) Full Time MBA - Beedie (SFU)

There were other options as well (Ivey, McMaster) but either deadlines or a pre-existing MBA were the issue.

I urge the members here to provide a little bit of guidance as to which schools would be better (and if I fit the bill as well) from a job prospective in Banking or Retail Analytics.

My Profile :
Indian Male ; Age - 28
Bachelor in Engineering in Information Technology in 2012 (U.S GPA - 3.01/4); 2 years in software development (2012 - 2014)
MBA in Information Technology in 2016 (Gold Medalist) (U.S GPA - 3.9/4); 1 year as Area Sales Manager in India's biggest Telecom provider and 8 months in IT Recruitments (Till Feb'18)
Life Member Indian Red Cross, Head of MBA Entrepreneurial Cell.
GMAT in Nov'19 (660 : Q-47 ; V-34 ; IR-5 ; AWA-4) ; Do intend to improve on that by Mid Jan
I am moving to Canada to have an ironic "fresh start" and have burned through almost all of my savings in the process

Criteria and Objectives :
I understand that there are multiple nuances to any Admission process. However, it is the general pattern I wanted to know about.
Since whatever course I do, it would be on a student loan. I wanted advice on which schools to target based on my profile with a good job placement scenario, and also do factors like (location - Toronto vs Vancouver) or (reputation - Sauders vs Beedie) play a significant role when it comes to the job market.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Hello anirudh279


First of all, congrats on getting Canadian permanent residency :thumbup:

Why "ironic" fresh start ? :)

This is indeed a fresh start for you, it would be for anybody making similar live/cultural/geographical transformation.


Of course that reputation of schools would play some role in job market, however Canada is very specific, plenty of jobs, not many people, so you would not have any problem to find proper job afterwards.

Don't worry about that. ;)

In terms of brand, Rotman is number one in Canada, Sauder and McGill are very close.


I would say you have great profile, in terms of education background and work experience and would expect for you to be admitted to all those schools.

My recommendation for you would be to go to Rotman or Sauder, or McGill, depending where you want to live and work afterwards: Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal.

Vancouver wins in terms of climate :cool:


In case you would consider some additional top Canadian schools, you can check my post here :

Finally, since Canada is so specific country and not that competitive in terms of job prospects, I would say that taking lowest possible loan would make a lot of sense, you are really going to be fine wherever you decide to go, and your future salary will not much differ, all Canadian citizens have excellent standard of living, there is not much segregation.

All above cannot be said for US :) and that is big Canadian advantage, Canadians have more humane form/version of capitalism.



Good Luck with your Canadian adventure, you made an excellent life choice and all investment/sacrifice/work will worth it ! :cool:
