    SFU MBA

    Hello, I'm wondering if anyone has applied to Simon Fraser University (SFU) for the Full-Time MBA program and can speak on their application process and how they were notified of a decision? So far I've had a meeting with their admissions team and have completed an interview. A few days after completing my interview I received an invitation to a meeting; however, no indication was given regarding the focus of the meeting. I'm assuming they will tell me the admission committee's decision, but I don't know if this is how they do it. Some schools email, call, or have a meeting etc. Does SFU
  2. Hi all! I'm very interested in the Ecological Restoration Master's offered by Simon Fraser University and BCIT (In British Columbia, Canada). I feel like it has the perfect balance of field work and diligent research to check all of my particular boxes, and everything I read up on this program makes excites me. I know I would love being in the field of ecological restoration or conservation, and this master's genuinely seems like my perfect fit. HOWEVER! It's relatively new (started in 2015), and is the only master's degree of it's kind in Canada according to the SFU and BCIT websites. Th
  3. Hi everyone! I got accepted to both SFU and UoT for the masters of public policy program. I’m having a hard time deciding between the programs. I think my quality of life will be better in Vancouver as my friends and family are here, but I know UoT is more prestigious and I’m not sure if this will help with my future goals. In the long term, I’d like to change the policy around mental health services in communities and in prisons. Any advice??
  4. Well, the decision deadline is coming really soon but I'm still hesitating... I currently have 2 offers, one from School of Information Studies, McGill, and the other from Interactive arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University. Both have supervisors appointed. More details are listed below. A. McGill Information Studies: Supervisor: Karyn Moffatt, Canadian research chair, https://scholar.google.com.hk/citations?user=FYdnVc0AAAAJ&hl=zh-CN&oi=ao Human Computer Interaction/Accessibility/Design for Older Adults citation 968, h-index 15 Advantages:
  5. Hey everyone. I applied to the following MPH programs: University of Alberta, University of Saskatchewan, Lakehead and SFU. I've heard back from Saskatchewan so far (yay!) I have a BSc in Global Health. My goal is to work in Health Promotion. I'd like to have temporary placements in different parts of the world (esp. Latin America), but my permanent goal is to work in Northern Canada (I'm from ON, but I currently live in NWT). Could you share some thoughts on these different programs? UofA: specialization on Health Promotion. Saskatchewan: seems great, doesn't focus
  6. Hi all, I have been offered admission to Simon Fraser University with a good funding package. I have heard back from Tufts as well and will receive the offer soon. I know that funding at Tufts isn't very good. However, they have a good placement record. The placement record (link) at SFU is also decent, but it doesn't have as many big names as the Tufts record. I'm confused about where I should go. AOI: Philosophy of medicine, philosophy of mind Any suggestions about what I should do? Thanks
  7. I would like to provide some information regarding the reality of getting admitted to top 5 ranked Canadian graduate schools in the Computer Science Program. I work in the field and it appears to me that many applicants are not aware of some of the basic requirements to be admitted that are not overtly stated but definitely required. Unfortunately, I am unable to reveal my university or position as I wish to remain anonymous. Most of the time, you MUST have previous degree from a top school of your country, especially for students with a degree outside of Canada/USA/UK. This is extreme
  8. Hello! I thought I would make a thread for those of us who have applied for MA/ME.d Counselling Psychology programs in Canada for Fall 2017! I applied to six BC schools for Counselling Psychology: UBC, UVIC, UNBC, TRU, SFU, and Adler. Haven't heard back from any yet :(. Did anyone else apply to these schools? Thanks 0
  9. How competitive is Master of Economics at SFU?
  10. The deadline for my UBC application was December 15th (around there) and my SFU one was around January 15th and it's been radio silence! I am getting so anxious. Has anyone heard anything regarding rejections from either? Particularly for social sciences (I applied for MA in Sociology).
  11. Hi everyone, I'm considering applying into the University of Alberta for Environmental and Occupational Health. For those who were admitted into the program what was your GPA? I'm just trying to understand what the competitive average is. Also, did you come straight from undergrad or did you work for a few years?
  12. , 2017 (edited) Hi Guys! I don't know if this is the right place to put this thread in, but I couldn't find any similar thread anywhere. So here it goes! All the Masters in Computer Science people who applied in Canadian universities converge here! Share your heart out, how you're dealing with the stress of waiting it out I know it's still early days for admits and rejects but here goes my applied list: UBC, Toronto, Alberta, Western, McMaster, Ottawa, Carletom, Windsor, Lakehead Cour
  13. I go to SFU in Canada and it's looking like my last semester's going to be a summer semester, ending in August 2018. The unfortunate thing is that most grad programs start in the Fall / early September. Anyone else been in the same situation? Is that too little time to finish up all the admin/paperwork I need to graduate from my undergrad so I can go to grad school right after (literally a couple weeks after I sit my finals probably)? Or is this impossible and should I just not bother and apply for the following year instead? I'm planning to apply for the MDEI program at Waterloo, btw.
  14. I am fixed between deciding between the two 1. Research Masters in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology with a full funding guarantee 2. Unfunded Masters of Information in the UX Concentration I am considering factors like - How big are university rankings as a factor when it comes to employability - Lesser financial liability will allow me to have a lesser headache in the masters learning experience, I could probably even spend money to enjoy the BC life - Toronto and VC look similar when it comes to living expenses. Any suggestions and advice
  15. I was wondering if anyone is waiting for University of British Columbia (UBC) or Simon Fraser University (SFU). Some people have already been contacted by their POI's, anyone with official admits?
  16. Hi All, I posted the following questions in another location but I figured this would be a more fitting place (i'm new here). In addition maybe we could all post our stats so we know what our future cohort is looking like! __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Hello! Im currently just in my last year, finishing my undergrad. Once I graduate I hope to attend a school in western Canada to get my MPH or MSc with a public health/health fo
  17. Anyone coming to Vancouver for their grad studies? I will be starting my PhD this fall.
  18. I have been accepting to two programs (my first choice rejected me) which are very different and I am having a very difficult time deciding which is the best choice. Simon Fraser and Calgary have both accepted me and offered me similar funding. I'll outline the main differences below..SFU - Master of Resource Management (Planning)-$6500 funding plus opportunity for SSHRC and TAship money which would entirely cover tuition and more-accredited planning program-co-op option-Focus is on environmental planning and resource management-research opportunities for pipeline benefit sharing agreements wi
  19. Hi, I have applied to quite a few Masters and PhD in Economics, and so far I have only received two responses, both which were somewhat positive, an admission offer from SFU with a $21,000 scholarship and an admission offer from Bocconi. Now, my problem is that Bocconi expect an answer before March 11th and SFU by then end of the month. I am still waiting for Cornell, UBC, and the University of Zurich (I sent that one very late, like 2-3 weeks ago). I honestly don't know what to do. Should I email them and let them know of my other deadlines (and offers?), and see if they can give me an idea o
  20. Just got admitted in this program, education technology and learning design, but the letter doesn't mention any funding, which is weird for doctoral study. Their website does mention PhD student may be eligible for 18k per year and up to 2 years. I'm an international student btw. Anyone is also got the admission?
  21. Has anyone heard from UBC or SFU for CS PhD admissions? Not interviews, accept letters. How normal is it for UBC and SFU to conduct interviews for admission? Are the interviews for international students mainly?
  22. Hi All Im applying for an MPH at the following universities: 1. population health at UBC 2. health promotion at UofT 3. Health policy at UofA 4. mph at SFU My specs: I graduated form Queen's University in biology with a 3.7 GPA in the last two years and overal cGPA of a 3.0. I have some volunteer experience in health but no professional designation. I took a year off but worked in a bank, so completely unrelated. Im wondering what people are applying for and what their specs are. Lets get this thread going!
