Schulich MBA Adcom Advice for Indian Applicants on India Campus

GyanOne interviewed Schulich School of business Associate Director, Imran Kanga, to get his perspectives on the India MBA program structure and opportunities available for professional looking at the India MBA program as an alternative to its Canadian counterpart.


GyanOne: How would you compare the Schulich MBA in Canada and the one in India in terms of program costs and courses of study available?

Imran: From an Academic perspective, both programs are the same because Year 1 of the program, whether done in Canada or in India only covers core courses, and is taught by Schulich faculty at both campuses, so it is exactly the same. From a cost perspective, students that opt to start in India are given a $10,000 renewable Scholarship ($10,000 in Year 1 and $10,000 in Year 2), so they can save up to $20,000 in tuition fees, and would save an additional $10,000 – $15,000 in living expenses.

GyanOne: Are all electives offered to Toronto students also available to Schulich in India students in Year 2?

Imran: Yes Schulich students that complete Year 1 in India have to travel to Toronto for Year 2, and they choose electives based on their own interests and goals, along with all other Schulich students in Year 2

GyanOne: What are some of the top reasons that students choose the Schulich in India program instead of the Toronto program?


1) Experience of understanding business issues in the context of a mature economy and a high growth developing economy

2) Increased face time and 1 on 1 interaction with Award winning Schulich faculty (due to smaller class size in India)

GyanOne: Many applicants see the Schulich MBA in India as an offshoot of the ‘main’ Schulich MBA, and feel that student participation as part of the India program will be curtailed because one cannot truly be a part of the clubs on the Toronto campus.

Imran: Students in India form their own clubs and plan their own activities. There is a lot of interaction and knowledge sharing that happens between Toronto and India throughout the program, so students in India definitely feel like they are a part of the Schulich community.

GyanOne: How far do similar students clubs in India compensate and how true is this notion?

Imran: As mentioned above, students are constantly in touch with students in Toronto, and the activities that are planned are along the same lines as those planned in Toronto

GyanOne: How do career opportunities for students play out for Schulich MBA in India students?

Imran: Over the past 3 years, I have seen that students from the India campus get the same job opportunities as students in Toronto. In some cases the India students outperform their Toronto counterparts. On the whole, the recruitment statistics for the India class are the same as the class in Toronto.

GyanOne: What are the average GMAT scores and undergraduate grades required for a competitive application to the Schulich MBA in India program?
