Post MBA Job Opportunities in Canada


Hi All !!

I am from India and I am planning to do an MBA from Canada . Currently I have more than two years of work experience in Qatar. I wanted to know about the job prospects in Canada for international students after MBA . I know a lot depends on me and my qualifications but i would still like to know the overall job scenario for an average student. As all of us know that we can stay up to one year minimum after MBA in Canada to look for jobs but is that time period sufficient enough to get a job ??
Any answer would be thoroughly appreciated .

Well, Canada is a big country with only a few business centers. I would say it's wise to look towards Toronto. It's got a strong economy, is the largest business capital in the country and is home to some of the best b-schools. It's also the most multi-cultural city in the world, so this works in your favor if you're coming from India.

These are the top schools in Canada, not ranked:

HEC Montreal
Queens School of Business
Richard Ivey School of Business
McGill University
Concordia University
Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto
Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia
Schulich School of Business, York University
University of Alberta, Alberta MBA Programs

I would say the chances are good for employment after one year. What sector are you focused on?

First of all thank you very much for the reply !!
My profile is somewhat like this !!
B.Tech Computer Science 2009 7.04/10
Work Experience in Qatar for 2 years as of now
Yet to take GMAT and TOEFL (will take it by August)
Can you suggest me some colleges which will accept profiles like mine .
I am planning to apply to
John Molson School of Business
Simon Fraser University
Thompson Rivers University
What do you think of my chances in these universities ? can you suggest some more .
I am mainly planning to go for Finance if I get the right kind of opportunity. I know to succeed in this field one needs to have prior work experience but still I have propensity towards this field. What do you think about this as a concentration ?
And if not Finance then I will look for Business Development and Marketing.
And thank you again for your reply .

Well, it's good that you have two years experience, because that's usually the minimum. It also depends on your GMAT scores.

John Molson School of Business requires 580 or better
Simon Fraser University and Thompson Rivers University requires 550 or better.

So these are pretty average scores.

In terms of financial centers, Vancouver is ranked 7th in North America, ahead of Montreal, so Simon Fraser might be a better bet.

I'd say you have a pretty average chance of getting in. I would look into the Alumni network at each school. Try to connect with international students to hear their impressions about the admissions process.

Best of luck!

Hi,

"business development and marketing" is a pretty wide field.

Sometimes it's counterproductive if you don't have clear ideas about where are you headed after your MBA.

Why don't you try to define a few positions you would really like (and firms) and a few you don't?
