Try asking this on the Americas board. Generally, if you take an MBA in Canada then that has to be at a university, since the Royal Military College is the only college which awards an MBA. Also remember that outside India the MBA is normally not a specialised degree: it is a degree in management.

Because most Canadians don't know what lakhs are, even if spelt correctly, give your budget in Canadian dollars ;-)

By the way, in Canada, I think you'll find that firms hiring MBAs are really looking for these job functions -- but do remember that the degree is not heavily specialised outside India. I have listed them in declining order of frequency.
# Marketing
# Sales
# General Management
# Consulting
# Project Management
# Strategy/Planning
# Information Technology
# Product Management

Your budget might struggle to cover the cost of a Canadian MBA and, of course, the higher-quality courses cost most. I suggest you work through this list:

Thank u Duncan

i have gone through the link and i think these tuition fee are not updated .

Many universities have upgraded their tuition fee by 60 - 70 percent .
Apart from that , you have suggested me different specialisation and i really appreciate your efforts . I need an advice from you - As per my profile(shared above) , which specialization would be suitable for me ??

Positively,
IJasmeet

Hi iJasmeet. Well, since you work in sales, and since sales and marketing are at the top of that list, I'd suggest a specialisation (in Canada I think there are most likely to write about taking a 'concentration') in marketing (since sales is part of marketing, and few schools have a focus in sales) would be the most credible for you.

However the options is also there to not take a concentration. Most MBA students outside India don't specialise or concentrate on one topic; instead they take the first half of the MBA to broaden their general management knowledge and then use the second half to strengthen their skills and knowledge across multiple areas.

Yes, it's hard to find a list of updated fees for Canada however I think the groupings -- above average and below average fees -- will be mostly the same. The highest quality programmes have above average fees. In particular I think you can expect the best-known, internationally-accredited programmes (like Alberta, McMaster, McGill, Toronto, UBC, UWO, Queen's) to be above average.
