This information should be made available to most international students but schools are generally quiet about it as they will lose potential 'business' and won't be able to spread the word of diversity amongst their student populations..and mind you, schools in other countries also 'hide' information too..they just list the names of the top companies in their placement brochures but don't say that just a handful of students get placed in these companies..Indian schools operate in a different way altogether as they have placement weeks where everyone gets placed, this is not the case abroad.
I like the example set by Olin (Washington U) business school where it clearly states in their admission materials that international students have a tough time getting the work visas..thats honesty. Michigan State also tells students interested in investment banking that the school is not the right fit for them, its not a finance school - thats honesty...

I am planning to apply for 2009 MBA Fall program,Please tell me how is Canada's De-Sautels University,I really don't care if this university is not as gr8 as the 4 univ's that you have mentioned earlier in your post,All I need is would I get a working visa(similar to H-1B) and an average placement,
if I join this univ.Please advise me some average canadian b-schools which are gud for finance.
Please advise me some european b-schools which have 2 year MBA Program, I find all the schools having 1 year program, The reason I detest 1 year prog. is bcoz I am not so talented like the usual b-school junta , so I need a 12+ month prog to understand MBA.
I would be really gr8ful to you if you could reply ASAP.
