Low cost / budget MBA in Canada


Feisty1

Can anybody direct me to a quality but budget MBA in Canada? Less than $50,000 Canadian for the whole program (not including living expenses) would be ideal. Thanks in advance!

Ryerson, maybe? Or Concordia.

Alberta or Haskayne are a bit more than $50k CAD, but both would probably be worth the additional investment. Who knows, they might also offer you a scholarship!

Thank you, what do you think about the MBA from Carleton Sprott?

It's AACSB accredited so that's a good thing. The internship is cool because it's an opportunity to get your foot in the door of a Canadian company. Location-wise, Ottawa could be good for certain career paths...

But for most typical MBA career paths (finance, etc) Ryerson is in Toronto and just because of that is a good option (not to mention it's ranked in Businessweek and is actually cheaper.)

Thank you this is good info on budget programs! I am really honing in on Ryerson because it seems to fit most of my needs. I will probably also apply to Alberta as well and hope for a scholarship.

The MBA at Brock - yea or nay? Seems to be a good value.

I like the co-op format of the Brock MBA - especially for international students, having some hands-on experience during the program can be a great way to get your foot in the door of a Canadian company.

However, for just a (relatively) small amount more money, you can do the MBA at either Alberta or Haskayne, which are unquestionably stronger offerings, in almost every sense.

I was interested due to the co op. Are there any other programs you would recommend with a co op instead of Brock?

Wilfrid Laurier, maybe? Maybe it could work for you, depending on your goals. But I'd still encourage considering one of the higher ranked MBA programs in the country.

I get that. But do schools like Haskayne (which I am also interested in) offer any kind of internship or co op component? In terms of career opportunities do you think that going with a 'better' school beats having a co op?

University of Alberta is ranked higher and just as good (if not better) than Haskayne I think. Approx $30k CAD.

It's almost $60k for international students. Almost the exact same price as Haskayne. These are still above my budget but I will see if I can get scholarships.

Are there any comments about Concordia? I see that the MBA is ranked by the Economist.

I liked the structure of Concordia MBA when I researched and applied in 2011. They had a good co-op program back then which i felt was very valuable.

Thanks. I was thinking of Concordia or HEC Montreal. Do you have any thoughts on HEC or which one has the better program?

HEC definitely has a more francophone orientation, and Concordia will of course be more anglophone / internationally oriented.

Beyond student life and day-to-day operations, this will probably filter out into the network, as well.

HEC is quite well known in the Montreal business community, it's an old school with lots of street cred. I typically recommend it over Concordia for those who are fluent in French.
