I have finished the arduous applicaiton process of this year and waiting for the final result. In my own opinion, if you want to chase a MBA diploma, you'd better take those test(TOEFL, GMAT) in China. Because I prepared them in Canada without any help, I just got an oridnary score( 720, 270). Though it seems much higher than those required scores. Becareful, you are competing with other guys coming from China. And to us (Chinese), 700 is the baseline.
When I began to consider those BS, I've thought about Queens as my first choice.
But, after I read the report of Canadian Business, I changed my mind. Definitly, Queen's is an excellent university, and it's famous for its Engineering departments. An important item used by Canadian Businees to evaluate BS is students' revenue after got the degree. Queens' students have the highest revenue. I think it's why Queen's is listed as top one. But the interesting fact is that majority of Queen's students work in abroad. Where is abroad --- America. So it will be a dilemma for an immigrant. Without Candian Citizenship, we can't work in USA. Even some American companies can help you apply H1. But in that condition maybe you have to give up your Canadian immigrant status. And I doubt in one year, whether those students can learn engouth knowledge and have time to find a satisfiable job. Especially, without internship, how to get the most valued North American experience.
So I prefer Richard Ivey of UWO. I believe the prestige of an university cann't come from one day. UWO emphasizes consulting, general management. York and UOT emphasize Finance and Economy. Richard Ivey is the most expensive one: 40,000 CND.
Queen's 35,000. York is 20,000 to landed immigrant.
BTW, I have met many worm heart friends who told me the difficulties to find a job in Canada as a MBA. I appreciate their concern. But "No pain, No gain". I believe the aim of MBAs is to explore new field and create job opportunities to themself. What I want is a career, not a job. Even I have been a programmer for many years and I love anything about computer, I give up the dream to be a IT professinal. I prefer using computer as an assistant.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
