Hi everyone!

I have received two offers- one from IESE Spain and another from Rotman, Toronto. I want to go into Management Consulting in future.

Some points I am considering:
1. Ranking: IESE (11th per FT) vs Rotman (86th per FT)- positive for IESE
2. With Rotman, I'll get a work visa for 3 years after MBA- which is a positive
3. I've researched on both programs and I've heard great things about the case method used by IESE. Its program is also linked with Harvard's since it was set up in an alliance with HBS- positive for IESE
4. I have received something called an entrance award for Rotman

I would like your help on which one I should select and which is better. Please answer the poll to help me.

Thanks,

Barcelona is nice but it's hard to top the three-year work permit granted by Canadian schools.

honestly, I can't tell you which one is better.
I'd suggest you look at the employment reports.
at the same time, you should take into consideration rankings, scholarships and tuition costs
IESE is ranked a lot higher (11 vs 86)
Scholarships I can't talk about, as I don't know if you have received any
tuition costs Rotman is slightly (about 13000 eur) cheaper than Rotman

take those into account while looking at employment reports. Also look at which consulting companies recruit at said schools, as just "consulting" is very general and every business school can get you into consulting (you can even do so without a business school)

I think you should evaluate where would you like to stay after graduation (if that's a concern to you), what kind of consulting would you like to do (MBB, for instance) and if they sponsor you to stay in the country or want you to return to yours and also talk to current students or alumni about this so they can give you a better idea.

I know that for IESE you also get a visa extension of 1 year (If I recall it right, it is an extension from the Spanish goverment for having completed graduate studies there).

I am still applying to schools, but I have talked with a few people about these concerns as well, specially with IESE as they have a Campus in my country.

i think if you do get a placement from the college then the work permit should not be an issue. Am I wrong here? Are there schools which ask you to go back to your home country after the MBA? Any thoughts appreciated..
