Hi everyone,

I had recently graduated from B-school and got my MSc. in International Business from HULT International Business school in USA. I am now considering to take MBA from of the best Canadian B-schools, which one do you recommend base on my profile and my decision criteria?

Target Schools:
Desautels (McGill) , HEC Montereal, John Molson (Concordia University) , Alberta, Haskayne (University of Calgary), Sauder (University of British Colombia), Beedie (Simon Frasier University)

Decision Criteria:(by order)
1.Tuition fee
2. Available scholarships
3. Job opportunity for international graduates
4. University reputation among the companies
5. Program Specialization (Project MGT or Supply Chain are my desired fields for study and work)

My Profile:
Bsc. Industrial Engineering - GPA 3.10 (Iran)
MSc. International Business - GPA 3.15 (USA)
2 Years of experience in Oil and Gas industry (Project MGT)
1 Year of experience in Solar Energy Industry (Biz Analyst)
GMAT: 550 ( I will retake it in Nov, with aim of 700)
Currently I am working with a start-up Co. in San Francisco Bay Area as researcher

Thank you all in advance for your cooperation.
Shahin

Shahin--if you can indeed get your GMAT up to the 700 level, you should be very competitive at those schools, and possibly consider applying at least 5 of the 7 if you can pull it off. Scholarships are a bit hard to come by for students applying from outside Canada, but there may be some opportunities if you get your application in in the first rounds when most of the scholarship and fellowship money is awarded.

Hi Shahin,

I would just like to add that you can aim for the following Canadian B Schools too as they're equally good:
*Ivey Business school
*Queen's university, Kingston
