Looking for some insight on how to break into Canadian IB. I am planning to immigrate to Canada and have admissions secured at Queens and Schulich. The main question for me is how important is a two year MBA program for me to break into IB.
I understand that the Queens MBA has a better reputation and possibly leads to stronger networks due to small class size, has some interesting opportunities for getting exposure to VC and Hedge Funds through student run funds (added bonus), strong IB recruiting ground
Schulich is in Toronto, allows me to develop a network over two years, allows for an internship opportunity (but maybe sacrifices a little bit on reputation??), has a financial engineering major.
Which should I choose? Is developing a network in Toronto over two years better or can I still do that from Kingston over 1 year?
I have an undergrad in mathematics, CFA charter and am working in ER in Pakistan.
