I am a software engineer from India and will have 3.5 - 4 years of work experience when I join the MBA in Schulich (JAN 2019) or Sauder (AUG 2019) ( have received admits for both). I am interested in marketing/brand management/product management and that would be my first choice for a job (even though it would be a complete shift for me). After that, it would be Consulting and then IT. I have worked in Financial Services and Manufacturing (Automobile) companies till now (as a software engineer).

So the major difference between the 2 programs is location - Vancouver vs Toronto. From what I have read around in forums there are less job opportunities in Vancouver (especially for consulting). However, I could not find enough information about product management jobs or IT.

The other difference is the program in Schulich is significantly more expensive (around CAD 21000 more). And I am not sure if the brand value of Schulich is worth that much more. However, in most MBA rankings, Schulich is ranked higher than UBC Sauder. But interestingly for "Business And Management" studies in general UBC is ranked higher.

I like the curriculum of both programs, and do not have a strong preference in that regard.

Personally, I would want to live in Vancouver, but not at the cost of struggling to find a job

Hello helloSimba

For Consulting jobs in Canada, Toronto is the best place to be in. For CAD 21000 more, you will
be able to get into a school which has a much stronger network in Toronto. Networking, which is
a big part of the job-search equation in Canada, will be much easier if you were to join Schulich.
The rankings aren't as important as the location of a particular school(because both these schools
are tier 1 schools).

https://www.schulichconsultingclub.com/ - Link for the consulting club at Schulich.
http://www.mbasociety.ca/smcc/ - Link for the consulting club at Sauder.

Talk to students from both schools(those eyeing consulting), especially students who may hold any
positions at these clubs. That, IMO, is a good starting point and must help you take a more informed
decision on which school to join.

Hope this information helps you!
