Double MBA in Canada


Hello. I am considering applying for a full time MBA program in Canada as an international applicant.



A brief about myself

1. 11+ years of work experience in the asset management industry

2. CFA, FDP charterholder

3. MBA with a specialisation in finance from my home country



I want to do an MBA and that settle with a job in Canada. I dont want to spend a fortune on getting an MBA. My questions:

1. One of the universities i reached out to suggested that it will be very difficult to get accepted with an MBA degree. Even if i build a case for why a second MBA will be useful and I do get admission, student permit will be very difficult to obtain. How do you guys view this?

2. Can someone suggest good B- schools for MBA or even a MSc program which would suit my profile?



Thank you guys.

An specialised MSc in analytics, AI, finance etc is the obvious alternative. See https://schulich.yorku.ca/programs/mf/ for example.

There's little point taking a full-time degree and relearning things you already know to get a student visa. Consider the post-MBA diploma at York University, or an intensive programme in French language at the university in Québec.
