Between the Schulich Masters in Finance program and McGill's Desautels MMF, which would you choose? I have been offered admission to Schulich for the 2018 intake, and am waiting for the decision from Desautels.

My plan is to get a job within Canada post-graduation, and I've heard from some people that not knowing French in Montreal can be a serious impediment. I wouldn't mind working in Montreal, but now knowing French, will I get hired? Additionally, can I hope to get a job in Toronto after graduating from McGill?

As an international applicant, cost is also a major consideration for me (tuition almost $77k for Schulich vs $49k for Desautels). However, Schulich has the proximity advantage to the financial hub. Is the cost difference justifiable? I have been getting contradictory advice from different people, some say go for the cheaper option as you'll eventually land a job. While some say if I go to Montreal without knowing French, I will have to come back to my home country.

It would be great if someone who has attended either program or who has been admitted and has done their research, can share their opinion on this.

I would choose Schulich because of its geography. Situated in Toronto is something which you should seriously consider. Schulich will undoubtedly enable you to build a very strong network across the business hub of the country.

In Desautels, more than 60% of the employers are from Quebec which is the French speaking province. When I was there in 2016, I could hardly find any local people conversing in English. Knowing French will be one of the most important criteria for you to find a job in Quebec. If you can learn and converse in French before you complete your MBA, you may consider Desautels then.

Although McGill is one the top universities in Canada, Schulich has the better brand name as far as MBA is concerned.

Hope I could throw some light on your query.

All the best.

mshahabkaleem, If cost is your constrain, did you try at Queen's ?It would work out much cheaper. You can also apply for PR, you will be paying fees of a domestic student. I have offer from Schulich for their MF program, but I still have doubts. I haven't heard good reviews about the MF program. What have you decided ?

imemanik thank you for your response :) I am leaning towards Schulich because of the French issue in Montreal, but I am still unsure about the MF program. Schulich's MBA is well known, and has a better brand name like you said, but I can't find much reviews on the MF program and its employment outlook etc.
