I feel its rep has dropped substantially over the past 10 years. My service line at Deloitte doesn’t even actively recruit from there anymore. I’d probably go for Rotman part-time or Ivey part time (this is new they just started it last year).

+1 to Rotman or Ivey over Schulich for MBA

Rotman MBA is the only Canadian part-time program worth considering.

What's the purpose of the MBA? What's your undergrad in?

I also have an undergrad in Accounting/Finance from a Canadian school. If nothing is tying you down, highly recommend trying to get into a US school. I get that's its super competitive and financially dreadful, it'll be worthwhile given comp outlook and brand name.

Rotman part time is pretty good. Honestly, if it’s not to make a career change I think you can pick up the skills on the job or through online classes.

Depends what you want to do after. I’d be careful about programs where big firms don’t actively recruit if your looking to make a change but if that’s not your goal then it matters less

+ 1 to Rotman / Ivey

+2 to Rotman/Ivey. The pay packages are matching for both these schools. But are different for schulich grads at times. And yes this applies to Deloitte offers as well from OCR

Hi 🐠, need some advice. Was told by my manager that time doing research (for info related to my client) is not client billable and has to be charged to the overhead code.

I asked for a non-billable code that counts towards utilization but was told my utilization is fine even though I’d be billing <40hrs & to use OH code
