Why do you post a link to a school that does not offer an MBA at all?

There are very few MBA programs in Canada that would be worth the investment that don't require the GMAT. The good schools like UBC Sauder, Concordia Molson, and York Schulich - all require you to take the GMAT.

Additionally, each of these schools and similar ones require you to have at least two years of work experience, which it doesn't sound like you have.

So basically for now its not worth doing an MBA in normal university which takes admission without GMAT. And as i have to start my career over here again can u suggest me some good course for diploma in some of the colleges. And Should take up a course in college like George Brown or do some UG or G from University.

1. Yes.
2. No.
3. That depends on the quality of the MBA.

Read the article I linked to above. Also read http://www.find-mba.com/accreditations Generally, the best accredited programmes require the GMAT. Employers understand that courses with the GMAT have students with high management aptitude than those who do not. Salaries and reputation are better.

Search the discussion board for the long discussion on Brock.

Personally, I think that the only schools in Canada that are worth doing are the ones ranked in the FT Global rankings. Namely:

Toronto - Rotman
York - Schulich
UBC - Sauder
Ivey
McGill

Ok, I guess there's a case to be made for HEC Montreal as well, if you speak French.

If I'm not mistaken, all of those schools require the GMAT.

The question is which school can give the best platform to experienced professionals post an MBA course which does not require GMAT.

I am a marketing professional with 6.5 years of experience with a very good courier progression. (became an associate director in less than 5 years in the company). I have a BBA degree in international business 6.1/10 avg. overall.

But need to go to a reasonably good school to start living in Canada. I am only 28 years old.

Kindly guide me on any good option which your expertise may deem fit.

Thank you :)

Of course you can leverage your work experience, just do it through a program like McGill, Rotman, Schulich, etc., if you want to have good opportunities to work in the country after graduation.

You must also understand that all good talent at work might not be good at giving GMAT or May nt want invest so much time in preparing for it.

So one can join a mid level job at good company and work there way up as well with a not so great MBA.

Is this possible in Canada ?

Also, I can see some executive program's which need about 7 years plus work ex and offer GMAT waiver. Do you know more colleges like that.

The idea is to go for a low hanging fruit instead of going crazy about the best MBA which may not even give fantastic return right after the MBA course.

Honestly, this is like building your house out of bread because you can't afford to build it out of brick. It's a terrible investment.

Then honestly only 260k students a year have the ability to leverage there couriers through MBA around the world.

Thats a pretty small no. For a commercial course to change a persons outlook in management. While others feel doomed.

Basically there is no middle ground. Irrespective thats its an arts course at the end of the day but holds a standard of a technical skill course beats me how companies think in the first place.

Its a superficial standard.

I'd also add Laurier and Simon Fraser to that list, depending on your concentration.

Not sure how you'd consider an MBA and 'arts' course.

I'd echo the earlier posts that recommend staying away from MBA's that don't require a GMAT. Why wouldn't you want to study with the best students possible rather than just getting a few letters for $50k?
