Depends on the program. If you're comparing LBS to Vancouver Island University, than a UK degree. But if you're weighing York Schulich against a no-name school in a flat in Fulham, then the answer is obvious.

Hi nazme,
in that case, you should consider these factors:
1. Job opportunity after graduation (ie. How is the economy going to be? What's the unemployment rate?).
2. Work permit. Is it easy to obtained?
3. Which curriculum suits your goal better?

IMHO, studying in U.K. will give you more international diversity. But problem is the economy will only recover at least in 2013 (just like U.S.A.). In both U.K. & canada, the tax rate is on the high end, but canadian universal health care is better than british N.H.S.

I'm ALWAYS very reluctant when it comes to choosing between non-accredited schools. It's like asking me to choose between the sloth and the turtle, who would win in a sprint? I wouldn't know how to answer, since I've never seen either of them sprint, and I think that's analogous in this situation. Non-accredited schools are usually not worth the paper they're printed on. There are some exceptions, but not common at all.

Is your MAIN purpose to get a job? Or is it to gain entry into said nation?

Based on your more recent posts I guess you are looking more towards the job prospects. In that case I would probably choose the UK, mostly because the UK has had a more prominent history, and so if you end up working in Laos or Malaysia or something a degree from the UK would sound better. "I got my MBA from the UK." If you are planning to work in a more developed and knowledgeable area of the world, such as staying in the UK or Canada, or moving to France or something, I really don't think it matters. If you're going to some ambiguous school, top recruiters will not look at you seriously anyway, regardless of what country you went to. The only edge really is impressing those who don't know anything about MBA schools at all.

Is it true?

No, nine times out of ten doing an MBA through a non-accredited program will be a waste of money, especially if you have to move and live somewhere else. That's a huge drain on your resources for what will undoubtedly prove to not be a good investment.

Well please do more research.

Also i question your judgement when you say I heard, who is that dick head who recommended things like UK school whatever shit it is will be better than the brightest college from such an amazing country like Korea.

And who the hell is it to say that average UK school is better than Canada. UK is is near bankrupt to charge its own children 9000 pound to go to university. And a country that is so corrupt that hire known criminal to positions closest to the Primer Minister.

In general in following this discussion and others here I understand that country choice often comes down to school quality and accreditation with visa status as another important aspect.

My situation is a bit different. I have PR in the UK although I am not from there originally. I am currently in Southeast Asia for family reasons but intend to pursue MBA next year. My choice right now is MBA in a UK (considering I already have PR) OR MBA in Canada (where I have no residency status). I am primarily concerned with job possibilities after graduation especially in supply chain or analytics. Cost is not really a factor at this point.

I think Canadian undergraduate student can pay more than British ones. In Scotland, for example, it's free. But it's not germaine. The UK has a strong bond market, so is obviously not bankrupt either.


Many top UK schools have higher international mobility and higher salaries than top Canadian schools. This person is also in the UK, so has a better starting position.

However, if you can only afford a non accredited UK MBA then the better choice is an accredited school's MSc.

Dear Duncan, cost is not a factor for me. I am speaking in terms of long term career goals and which country would be better. Does having PR in the UK as a starting point make a difference compared to no residency status in Canada whatsoever?

Certainly especially since MBA salaries are generally better from the top UK schools and, hey, winter.
