Top UK MBA for employment in Canada


Great Man
Dear all,

I am new on this forum and will be so glad if you can offer some advices and suggestions based on your various experiences.

Having done a lot of research, I realised that Canada is a country that i would want to migrate to with a view to staying there for a very long time.

As a matter of fact, i have already started the immigration process and all things being equal, i should be able to scale through.

That being said, I am currently in a dilema with regards to where to do my MBA. Ordinarily, Canada would have been an ideal place for me as i will be moving there soon but the tuition fees of Ivey and ROTMAN (my preferences) are on the high side. Due to this, i have done some research on top UK MBAs like CASS,Cranfield etc and found out that i should be able to afford their fees as i have a place to stay in the UK (hence accomodation and few other livings expenses may not really be an issue for me).

The main issue now is that if i get my MBA from one of the top UK schools like CASS/Imperial/Cranfield etc, will i be able to compete with other folks who got their MBAs from top Canadian schools when i start looking for jobs?

I would have loved to stay back in UK and gain some work experience but ever since the Govt scrapped post study work permit program, things have not been the same again.

Thanks in advance.

You will be much better off studying in Canada or the USA. If the UK has to be the choice then look for international exchange partners of top Canadian schools so you can spend a term there.

PS In terms of the size of the alumni network of UK schools in Canada, my guess would be:
London Business School > Manchester > Warwick > Imperial > Henley > Lancaster > Cass/City > Cranfield.

Even added together, they won't have one tenth the reach of Schulich, McGill or Queens' schools of business.

Yes,i think you are absolutely right on that.It's best to focus on Canadian MBA rather than trying to find job with a foreign MBA. I have streamlined my focus to Ivey and ROTMAN...Schulich,Mc Gill, Queen's are great schools too but i think either of the former will suit me best.
