Basically, all universities in Canada require work experience. The only one I can think of who doesnt require without experience is Malaspina University College.

I agree with gaga, work experience is more or less mandatory. I would advise you to try Australia or US. There are some colleges that accept students even without any w experience.

D general trend all over the world is that b-schools accept candidates with esp only..however, there is always scope for exceptions. Schools do waive off this..but very rarely..(I don't to give you a wrong ray of hope).
Work ex is almost a prerequisite to apply. ;(
The idea behind the work ex is to make sure that you understand the b-environment n can gel well with the people.
(dat doesn't mean that people w/o work ex can gel well).

Hi There,

Typically if you want to get into even a B school MBA program in Canada you need at least 2 yrs work experience

None of the ranked MBAs in Canada will take candidates without work experience. You'll be better off either waiting, or applying to a pre-experience masters degree which is not an MBA. For example:
http://www.ivey.uwo.ca/msc/
http://www.sauder.ubc.ca/Programs/Master_of_Management_-_Early_Career_Masters

PS I don't know the McMaster programme mentioned below, but it looks excellent. I'd suggest looking carefully that placement and salary data.

And a few places also offer pre-experience MSc's in Canada. These include reputable schools like Ivey, Sauder, and Queen's. An MSc at one of these schools would be much better than an MBA from an unaccredited university.

Agree. Without question, work experience is one of the single most important aspects of the MBA experience - you need to have some kind of relevant experiences to reference while you're studying. I know that there are MSc's out there that don't require work experience, but these programs are not comparable in any sense to accredited MBAs.

That's less than $15,000 CND. I don't see how a programme that cheaply run, and with students with one year's work experience, can get great wages for its alumni.

Take a look at http://wannabehomesick.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/cheapest-schools-for-mba-program-in.html and also http://www.milliondollarjourney.com/canadas-most-expensive-and-lowest-cost-mba-programs.htm but remember that you get what you pay for.

Try using Google. That's how I found those first two links.

There are a handful of MBAs in either country. If your friend is not motivated to do this basic research for himself, I am not sure we would be helping him.
