I guess it depends on what you hope to accomplish

Definitely not Ryerson (no offense) unless its employer-sponsored.

MBA from Ryerson would be my choice, you can do it part time and it is in a good location. You already have good finance designations as well in the 2 you are taking so the Mfin is of no use to you.

IMO MBAs are now overpriced and overrated money making schemes...they let anyone in who has $$ regardless if they're qualified, totally devalues the reputation and prestige of the program, go for Mfin...employers just care about a candidate having a masters, not necessarily what it's in or where it's from, just looks good on your resume.

Also don't believe any of the hype about a school or programs ranking on published lists (e.g. best business in canada) ....firsthand knowledge how they're meaningless.

it's important to know before you pick a program/school

Quite broad but theyre all related: Strategic consulting, business valuation/private equity/commercial banking, investment banking, hedge fund/portfolio management, and risk management.

The common denominator is financial analysis (including ifrs, gaap) and finance theory.

Do you have any other universities as an option? Are you planning to work while getting a degree?

The areas of finance that you are interested in are quite different and it's not that easy to break into investment banking or management consulting unless you are at the top of your class. Have you considered Rotman or Ivey if you are planning to do a degree in Canada?

I already have commercial banking experience in mid market (ie. $100 million sales), thinking of supplementing it with a masters degree and get to large corp.

Forget MBA and go with EMBA instead. The cohort approach and networking is way better. The people I studied became friends for life and they are mostly elite people.

If you set your mind to either program, just do it. Don’t listen to those devaluing MBA or MFin. Anything you learn is a toolset. So use it at full potential and never thing you are better than anyone simply because of a paper. Is how you use it that makes you better.

I personally won’t pay for a MBA myself. Try to get a employer to pay for it.
