Hey everyone, I'm a Canadian student who has recently been accepted to the LSE for a MSc in Human Resources. I've heard this is a quite prestigious university in Europe, but not so well known in North America. Am I crazy to pass up the this chance to go to the University of Toronto instead? LSE would cost me about $60,000 vs. U of T $30,000 (including living expenses). Also, as the UK has made getting work visas more difficult, I'm worried that I won't be able to stay in the UK to work after and my degree won't be as recognized when back in Canada. Anybody have any advice or experience?
Hello, I've been accepted into both the Masters of Industrial Relations at Queen's University and the Masters of Industrial Relations and Human Resources at the University of Toronto. Does anyone have any experience with these programs? I was originally leaning towards U of T because it's a more recognized school (especially internationally) and I like the fact that you can specialize in both industrial relations and HR. However, the program is twice as long (it is 2 years versus 1 at Queen's). Doing the Masters at U of T will also mean that I will have to pay at least twice as much as the program at Queen's since I'll have to pay for 2 years of tuition and 2 years of living costs (plus Toronto is more expensive to live in than Kingston). Of course, it'll also mean that I'll be out of the workforce for an extra year. To add to this, Queen's has offered me some funding whereas I will likely get none from U of T. I'm not sure whether job prospects would differ much between the two degrees? Would it be more difficult to get into HR if I wanted with the degree from Queen's? Is the name of the degree (ie. industrial relations) too abstract? I'm also interested in learning about if one program is more satisfying academically. I'm looking at both the quality/learning experience of the program and the job situation following graduation - both are important to me. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
