UK or Canada


Hi I have 8 years experience in non profit + health + management. Considering an MBA to move up the ladder. Some of the largest players in health / social sector tend to be in the US or UK. The post trump, post Brexit situation is not the best for international ( non EU ) students like me who want to have a few years work experience before moving back home ( Malaysia). Have given up on the US. Canada seems like the safest option ( post work visas) but I cannot quite give up on the UK yet ( interest, relevance) .

Any internationals managed to land a post MBA job in the UK recently? What was your experience like? Is it better to stick to safer options like Canada ?

Thanks for your feedback!

I think the rankings show that top UK schools remain a safe option for international students (see my post on placement linked from my profile page). Canadian MBA salaries are much lower, so that is also a strong option. Canada is easier for permanent residency.

Thanks Duncan. Out of curiosity - why would lower Canadian MBA salaries being lower be a plus?

Lower wages mean that the average value of MBAs is lower, so perhaps there is more demand for any given MBA graduate in Canada at a lower price than in the UK at a higher price.

And when you're looking at cost of living, cities like Toronto tend to be much more affordable than, say, London.

Average MBA salaries at Rotman / Schulich can go quite far there and in other Canadian cities.
