Sauder Vs. Schulich  [#permalink]

Hi All,

Appreciate all the advice I could get on which school to choose (Sauder or Schulich).

Sauder - Pros:
- Good school, best in the West
2nd Canadian school based on Financial Times Global MBA ranking
UBC has a strong brand name

Cons:
Vancouver is not a business hub, 77% employed upon graduation, strong focus on tech industries but not sure about school strength in consulting, organizational and business development management

Schulich - Pros:
- No. 1 according to the Economist and Forbes
- Toronto based which gives it access to a larger number of businesses
- 20 Specializations which is far more than Sauder's 3 tracks.
Cons;
Brand-wise UBC has the better brand than YorkU

Overall, I like how Sauder's program is structured. I am not sure about Schulich's or the school's culture. Schulich's program sounds very strong given the number of people who favor Schulich and put it in competition with other schools such as Queen's, Ivey and Rotman. I didn't find Sauder regarded as highly as the others. In the US, rankings, and brand name to a great extent drive ones career prospects post MBA. I am not sure whether it is the same case in Canada.

Generally, I seek positions in Organizational and Business Development consulting post MBA. I love to work in innovative industries. However, I want keep an open-mind and not close the door to other options that might come my way during my study.

Please share your thoughts :)

Have you visited both schools? In so many ways, the best school to attend is the best school for you. Each has a very distinct culture and you'll get a sense of where you will best thrive. Really urge you to visit before committing.

Also, review the employment statistics for each and think about where you want to end up, where the recruiters will be that you want to connect with.

I understand you're interested in being open during your studies, but you need to have a specific goal before going to business school so that you can make manifest what you want to achieve.

It's kind of like walking into the Mall of America without a shopping list. You'll become a little overwhelmed and distracted if you don't think first about what you want to get done.

I think that reflecting on your goal more thoroughly will bring forth the best school for you to attend. You might want to enroll the help of a coach and doing this.

My last suggestion would be where do you want to live? Vancouver or Toronto? I think that has an impact on this decision.

Thank you Farrell ? Regarding my short and long term plans,I want to work in the consulting space (specifically Organizational and business development) and later move to starting my own business.

As an international student, it is challenging to visit schools.
I have never been to Canada and my knowledge of the Vancouver vs Toronto argument is from what I have read online. People are cheering for both cities for different reasons. Each has its own appeal. I am wondering whether ranking has the same impact on one's post MBA job prospects in Canada as in the US?!!

Thanks again☺

Canadian here—the decision really comes down to whether you want to live and work in Toronto or in Vancouver. Canadian MBA programs are fairly regional so I wouldn't worry at all about UBC's brand vs. York's brand. Both Sauder and Schulich are well respected in Canada, but will carry much higher value in their respective regional centers (Sauder in Vancouver vs. Schulich in Toronto).

Decide on Vancouver vs. Toronto first, and then go with Sauder for Vancouver or Schulich (and Rotman) for Toronto.

Hello everyone,

I am in a similar situation (Schulich Hyderabad vs Sauder) and the decision needs to be based on post-MBA work opportunities.

Though Toronto is known for numerous opportunities, I'd like to know whether Vancouver fares well in terms of decent career prospects.

I am looking for a Marketing/ Branding/ Business Development/ Corporate Innovator role in Tech/ Non-Tech industries.

Thanks in advance.

Have you taken into account that the Hyderabad campus of Schulich does not have the same reach, branding as the Canadiana one?
BIG DIFFERENCE!
