Hi all,

I'm looking for some advice on which school would be best for my interests. I'm a qualified CPA, CA with 4 years of experience in professional service firms. I'm looking to transition into the social impact space (impact measurement, corporate social responsibility), and am primarily considering Schulich and Sauder at this time.

Any suggestions on which school would be better? I'm eligible for the 8 month accelerated option for Schulich (compared to the 16 months for Sauder). I'm based in Toronto but feel a move to Vancouver could be exciting too. If I went with Sauder, I'd like to take advantage of the summer internship, and international exchange opportunities which the Schulich accelerated option wouldn't have.

Cost wise - Schulich is much cheaper given the length and some funding. Sauder I'm waiting to hear final details on costs and funding availability.

Thank you in advance for your advice!!

Congrats on scoring 2 admit!

The biggest question after the MBA is always - where can you find a job and how much would a school help you with that.
At the same time, while the end goal is the job, it is nice to enjoy the journey along the way too.

Schulich 8-month program will be drinking from a fire hose. You will have to start recruiting within a month or two after matriculating and won't have much of a break. It is absolutely the most efficient and best ROI method. However, many go after the MBA to try new things out and to do a bit more of soul searching and trying out an internship. I think if you know what you want and sure about it, Schulich will be the best program. However, if you are trying to take a bit of a break, take some time to figure out what you love/hate, and don't mind having a bit more of a financial burden, Sauder can be a very attractive option. I feel Vancouver may have more options on the west coast in terms of Social Responsibility and such (just based on the US east coast vs. west coast mentality).

Good Luck!
