Schulich MBA

Hi,

I have been admitted into Schulich's MBA program and intend to to specialize in Finance.

I was doing a bit of research on what specialization is considered the strongest at Schulich and which specializations have the greatest demand in Canada.

I have come across some varying information and wanted to get the opinion of some experts or experienced individuals on this discussion board.

Thanks

Read the placement report at http://www.schulich.yorku.ca/client/schulich/Schulich_LP4W_LND_WebStation.nsf/resources/Documents/$file/2011+MBA+Salary+Survey.pdf

Largest areas: finance and consulting

Greatest demand *relative to supply* will be indicated by salary premiums. Highest salaries are for wholesale banking/IB. Not much of a surprise...

Interestingly, the salary data that Duncan linked to shows very little variation in average salaries across industries. So financial roles, consulting roles, marketing roles, project management roles, etc. all make about $90k CAD on average.

That said, finance is still a good choice, even post-financial crisis, and especially in Toronto.

Although, I'd imagine that there will be more higher-paid jobs opening up in health care services and mining/oil/energy, judging by recent trends across Canada.
