Thank you!
The list is not very long. I hope that there are more programs meeting the reqirements.
I also found Malaspina University College.

There are some more. I didn't have more time yesterday to look them up for you.

But I must say your request limits que choice quite a lot. Especially the good MBAs require alll the GMAT. Also, it's more typical for Canada to offer 2 year MBAs, like in the US. But about one school out of two has a one year version too

I confirm what Juanito writes, Most MBA programs require GMAT, and that`s not a Canadian specialty at all.

I would even say that you should be suspicious about unknown programs NOT requiring GMAT - that can mean that they don`t attract enough people, and that they accept everyohne, even those who have a bad profile - not a good place to study then.

In fact, the school has to measure somehow the capacities and qualification of the candidate. That`s why top programs sometimes are fine with other prooves than GMAT if the student establishes that he/she is far, but very far beyond average.

So, taking into account the above and what Juanito stated, its normal that out of the 40-50 MBA programs in Canada only a small list corresponds to what you are looking for.

Here some more information that might be interesting for you:

The admission section of the MBA at University of New Brunswick it says: "students with a GPA of 3.2/4.3 or higher may be eligible for a GMAT waiver"

If you speak French, you might have a have a look also at:
Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM) MBA - AND
Université de Sherbrooke (Québec)
I did not find any mention of GMAT

Hope that helped?

Not at all, we kind of finished the above discussion, anyways MBAs not requiring GMAT is a very specific, marginal request.

Regarding your question, there are quite a few one year programs in Canada. From my personal research I got the impression that the general model in Canada is the 2-year version like in the US, but a lot of schools offer both.

I started my research going through the FIND MBA Canada section, where I went through the programs one by one. It's only 5 pages, some 40 MBAs, very well feasible.
But I think you can even narrow your research with specific parameters using the reseach function (head of this page on the right side, button: "Search MBA")

Thanks a lot Maite. I appreciate your effort.
Let me give you an overview of my background.
I am an IT professional (expertising in database systems) with 4 years of work exp. I would like to stick to the filed of IT and use my MBA to excel in my existing field.
First of all, does that make sense ?
Well, what specific courses would help me in my purpose. Are there any specific courses for tecnical graduates with work exp (like IT finance etc).
The sole purpose of 1 year MBA is its pace. .

Thanks again for your effort

I understand, one year is quicker, and also far lower in costs.

As for your profile, I can't help you I'm afraid, since I have a law beackground, I studied law and economics and don't know about IT. Sorry for that :-(

But generally speaking you can either stick to your field, or chose a general MBA if you head more for positions of management of a company specialised in the field. That depends n your personal preferences. You sound more like wanting to specialize in your field, that's fine.

For the courses, I don't understand very well, do you mean something outside an MBA or in the MBA program?
