Lots of options for you: http://www.oxfordseminars.ca/GMAT/gmat_profiles.php If you improve your TOEFL score then your GMAT score will also improve.

Careful with that list, since it often just has the minimum scores and these do not always ensure competitiveness. For instance Ryerson's minimum GMAT requirement is 550 but the average of admitted students tends to be in the 620-630 range.

Hi all,

I have to decide between these Canadian schools:

Wilfrid Laurier
Ryerson
Concordia

Any advice?

I think that if it was a few years ago, Laurier would have been the go-to choice, but Ryerson's been a bit of an up-and-comer in terms of career services and applicant quality so the decision is a bit harder between those schools now.

I've been a fan of the Laurier MBA with co-op because it gives students a substantial hands-on experience. I'm not sure if these co-ops translate into jobs for grads - I personally would ask the school about this. A disadvantage to the Laurier program is that it's delivered on the school's Waterloo campus, which is a 3-hour bus ride to Toronto.

Concordia is a bit of a separate beast, but a main difference between this and the other two is obviously location. Keep that in mind when thinking about your options.

Very helpful, thanks! I am very interested in the best program for getting a job. It sounds like the Laurier one is good but that location isn't ideal. Do you think that an internship during the Ryerson MBA could help with a job?

Sounds like a good question to ask Ryerson. Internships tend to be good for this kind of transition, as they allow you to demonstrate your skills to a firm in real-time.
