I'm not sure about this, but that is possible. However, Canada is a good destination for international MBA students, because unlike schools in the U.S., schools there will give you a work permit for a certain amount of time (one or two years, I think.) after you graduate.

I've never experienced it myself, but I've heard that applying for things like H1B visas in the U.S. can be a notoriously difficult process, so the fact that Canadian schools can provide you with a work permit would seem to be an advantage.

Well, easy in context, I'd say. From what I know, many MBA programs there will help you get a 1 or 2 year work permit after you graduate. They're provisional permits, connected to how the educational system works. Definitely easier than trying the same thing at a US school, I'd imagine.

But I'm no expert. Best thing to do would probably be to contact the school you're interested in and ask them directly.

Hi all,

I just talked some of my co-workers who came here (Canada) for school and basically this is what they told me:

If you study in canada for two years you have 90 days after graduation to apply for a work permit. The work permit is good for 3 years.

As for job prospects, the canadian economy is starting to stabilize. It hasn't fully recovered but you should be able to find something once you graduate. and with the baby boom generation starting to retire it might be easier to move up the corporate ladder, or at least that's what people are predicting.

Hope this helps

The way we treat foreign Engineers and Doctors are different from the way we treat foreign MBAs. MBAs are good so long as you can get into the country. Engineers and Doctors in Canada have to reach a certain standard to be allowed to practice. These are professions that can take lives if the Engineer is incompetent (remember all those Bridges that crumbled in the US and Quebec? Bad Engineers). We do not trust foreign educated doctors and engineers because we have no way of monitoring and verifying the quality of the education provided. How do we know that a school in Fiji taught the right material? How do we know that up to date technology is used in teaching? We don't know a thing. They may be the smartest students in their country, but if they weren't taught the right things, they might as well be useless. Better safe than sorry. I know doctors from the US, UK, Australia and S. Africa often come to Canada to practice, but countries like India, Poland, China have no luck. This is ONLY for special cases, so don't go around thinking it applies generally.

For MBAs, lives are not at stake. There is no government body that has to recognize you before you can enter the world of business (like for Medicine or Law). Heck, you don't even, technically, need an MBA to do business. Your only obstacle is getting someone to hire you (as opposed to doctors being prevented from even thinking about it).

So no, you don't have to worry about those rumors.

Starting salaries are not as good as in the US or Europe. The Quality of the program is very high. You can bet that the professors are top notch and the teaching standards are world class. The reputation of Canadian MBAs are not up to par to top US and EU schools though (although we probably beat out their average schools). Canadian MBA programs are very young, and often the MBA programs are small. Canada has very high standards of living, very peaceful, low crime rates, very happy people, but economically the opportunities aren't the same as if you were in the US. So in comparison to the US, the US would have more opportunities for the ambitious. On average, the Canadian economy was not hit hard by the recession. In fact we were the best performing economy out of the G7 during the recession and our banks went unscathed (none of our banks went bankrupt, the government did not extend money to Canadian banks and so there is no cap on pay, and our banks are even buying up some banks abroad and opening up new branches). On average, there probably are more jobs available in Canada, but the top paying jobs are in the US.

If you really want to study in Canada, I know Queens' University rank well under businessweek rankings, so look into them. Ivey is also a traditional favourite. Schulich apparently also has a decent reputation. These three are probably Canada's best. UBC and McGill has good reputation generally, but their MBA programs are relatively unknown. Rotman (Toronto) is alright I guess.

You should try reading some of the news relating to the Canadian economy. Their economy is the best performing economy in the West right now. Their banks handled the whole subprime thing much better than any other in the world (not as exaggeration, I saw it on bloomberg). You know how British banks are being bailed out by the government and many US banks went bankrupt? A Canadian friend of mine pointed to the fact that most of Canada's banks have posted increases in profit.

Here's a relevant news story:
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601082&sid=aucUc30_WlaY

The consumer-banking industry as a whole increased by 12%.
RBC posted increases in earnings of 35%.
Did this sound like a big jump to you? Read the very bottom:

Yesterday, Bank of Montreal, the fourth-biggest Canadian bank, said profit almost tripled to C$657 million.

CIBC, the No. 5 bank, said Feb. 25 that profit rose more than fourfold to C$652 million. Montreal-based National Bank, the sixth-largest lender, said profit more than tripled to C$215 million.
