Great MIM programs in Canada


MD2926

Hello people! Could you suggest some great MIM programs in Canada for people with non-business work experience of 3 - years?
I know traditionally people with worked ex are precluded from MIM programs and they should pursue MBA program.

If online programs outside Canada are an option, you might want to check out the just-announced iMSM from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign.

 I view the value of a masters in management in Canada as equivalent to a second bachelors degree.  It works for domestic students who might be transitioning from another major (e.g. biology/history to business).  However, for international students, who need an edge to get into the job market, it has less value because it is "generic" and does not provide the highly specialized education that makes you attractive to employers.  

Just as an example, UBC Sauder (a really good school) has a Masters in Management.  https://www.sauder.ubc.ca/programs/masters-degrees/ubc-mm
The average graduate salary for that MM program is $44,439.  That is a really low salary.  An average bachelors degree grad majoring in a quantitative field like CS or Math would have much higher salaries than that.  


In terms of bang for the buck, the better option is to pursue a masters in a more specialized field like finance, analytics or business intelligence.

What do you think about the various diplomas at colleges in Canada for fields like Analytics and comp science? I saw many people on linkedin who completed them and are working at good places and have emigrated to Canada after completing such diplomas. I mean not everyone has taken comp sci courses in undergrad and can complete an analytics masters.  i do agree that studying comp sci or analytics is a best way to get a job in Canada.

"College" in Canada is a parallel track to university studies for local students who don't want a 4 year degree.  It is also popular among recent immigrants who are trying to get "Canadian work experience" because some programs have co-op / internships attached.  

However, career prospects are not the same as a bachelors degree.  Most students there are targeting entry level positions that do not require a degree (e.g. salaries of minimum wage to 40K).  Also, it works for locals and recently landed immigrants who don't need visa sponsorship.  For international students looking for sponsorship/visas, I don't think it is as effective.
