As an Indian national, why would I choose the Schulich India MBA over the full-time program in Toronto?
The Schulich MBA in India enables students to spend a shorter period of time abroad by taking the first year of the MBA in India. This may be advantageous to students who have obligations that make it challenging to be out of the country for a two year period.
The Schulich curriculum is global in focus, regardless of the program a student is taking. The Schulich MBA in India, however, benefits students seeking a deeper exposure to the business issues in India and North America as well as those seeking to build networks in both India and North America.
I was accepted in the Fall MBA program at Schulich. Can I redirect my acceptance to the Schulich MBA in India?
Eligible candidates may also apply to the Schulich MBA in India. Placement in the Fall program at Schulich, however, does not guarantee acceptance into the Schulich MBA in India also starting in September 2013.
