As a Canadian citizen and somebody who would like to work in Canada (Montreal specifically) during their career, is there really a great value to doing a top 50 American MBA rather than a top Canadian MBA? I feel like Canadian employers will definitely recognize and pounce at the opportunity to hire a Harvard/Stanford/Wharton/Yale/Columbia MBA as those are the American MBA names most common here. But there are a lot of other top American MBA programs that may not be as well known in Canada as they are in the United States, such as, Darden, CMS, Ross etc. At that point wouldn't doing an MBA at a top Canadian school like McGill or Rotman be the same if not better than doing one at CMS etc? On the other hand looking at Europe, I feel like an INSEAD MBA coming back to work in Montreal specifically would be more attractive to employers than McGill or Rotman. If anybody could provide me with some guidance on this issue I would appreciate it.

beyond top 20 US MBA, for Canadians, it may make sense to stick with top 5 Canada MBA than an outside top 20 US.... the main rationale is, quality of network... most jobs outside the big fortune 500 firms, in Canada will be filled with folks from these top 5 Canada programs vs. those from schools out side top 20 US...so to get access and off-campus recruiting, it's better to have alumni connections... with a top 20 brand, even with lack of alumni, you could get the brand cache to open doors, but outside that... less so.... then go for alumni network.
