MBA in US or Canada


Hi, i am 36, from India and looking to study full time MBA (haven't come across anyone around my age) I have 10+ years of experience in a fortune 20 company, currently managing asia pacific role. I haven't saved enough to do a EMBA (seems very expensive), so looking at taking a break to do a full time MBA in US or Canada that will help me find a job internationally; looking for a change in location. I am open to Europe as well, if it works out economical.

That sounds very sensible. Do you have any questions? Have you taken the GMAT?

You should apply to MBA programs in Canada. They usually accept older applicants, have higher acceptance rate and it will be much easier for you to stay in the country after your MBA. Top programs in Canada have 30-50% acceptance rate.

Canada was my first option for doing MBA's. Any Universities you recommend? I was looking at specialising in HR or Corporate Communications (i have a background in Internal Communications, Employer Branding and also a bit of HR projects).

Rotman in Toronto is strong in human resources, as is Ivey.

But I wouldn't discount a general MBA from another ranked program in Canada: McGill, Schulich, or Sauder, for example.

However, if you don't want to stay in Canada after graduation, a top-tier US program will usually have better international recognition, alumni networks, etc.

But really, you should really study where you want to end up working.

Any MBA program worth doing will require you to take the GMAT, regardless of your work experience.
