MBA in Canada 2016


Ayush

Thank you Duncan.
Actually i had taken the GMAT earlier but the scores are not satisfactory it is only 480, which is equivalent to making an application, without a GMAT score, that is why i mentioned without GMAT. I had excluded the USA because of the strict entry rules and as already said by you Canada has low entry barrier.

As you said I have excluded emerging economies, could you please point on as which specific country in particular you wanted to focus on.

I am highly motivated by my elder brother as well who has done his MBA from Singapore and settled over a time without the GMAT again.

PS - I have recently joined German classes, will it be helpful getting enrolled into some German universities with a started German language knowledge. Could you even suggest how would be GISMA, IUBH, EU (Munich) and Cologne B school as there are the ones from where I have chances of getting admissions according to my profile and scores. As also other top b schools have high tuition fees. (Mannheim, ESMT) i have budget of max 22-25,000 Euro

I think any high-growth economy is attractive.

In terms of Germany schools, you can do better than the ones you mention by attending a traditional university. Learn German, then take a MSc taught in German. This will be much cheaper if Germany is your target.

Thank you Duncan.

But again would you advice going applying to Canadian B schools with a low score in GMAT and also isn't that value of MBA more and also the Salary after MBA in comparison to that of Msc.

Moreover for all traditional universities are not in big cities, wouldn't it be better if one starts with metro cities such as Berling, Munich e.t.c so by the time one studies, it will be easy for networking as well as know the MNC over there and economy, also the city as a whole.

Thanks again.

I think Canada will be much easier for you than Germany. In Germany, German-speaking graduates of good MSc programmes earn more than graduates of weak, unaccredited MBAs at private schools. Berlin is rather weak economically, with an average GDP around half of the other big cities. Because the top schools are well trusted, WHU, HHL, EBS, Mannheim uni and Cologne uni do quite well. But, certainly, the LMU in Munich and the traditional universities in Berlin are almost as strong. The CHE rankings are useful in comparing schools and your local DAAD office can help you.

That said, because you write well I don't see how you cannot improve your GMAT score substantially.

Not sure what happened to Nighat but in general an MBA can add a lot of value to somebody who has an engineering background. And MBA can give you more management skills and help you learn about various business topics - all of which become more important as you transition into senior leadership roles.

I'm not sure about GMAT prep in Islamabad, but if there's nothing, you can always find alternative prep methods like online tutoring, books, online practice tests, etc. And yes, the best schools will usually always require the GMAT, and make sure you get as high a score as possible to help offset your low GPA.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I heard that few universities are offering pre masters program for students who don't meet the pre requisites of mba program. Do you know of any such university / courses? MBA programs have high fees, which institution is better in terms of low tuition fee and quality education?
