Limitless Opportunities

As a country with a top-tier education system and thriving with economic and cultural diversity, Canada is the ideal location for students looking for a unique MBA experience with limitless opportunities.

Why Canada

  • More Top Business Schools
    Businessweek lists the best business schools outside of the USA. One-third of those programs listed are consistently Canadian business school programs.
  • Welcoming Environment
    Immigrants to Canada are encouraged to maintain their identity. In fact, we rank third out of 31 countries in Europe and North America on how well we grant equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities to immigrants. (Migrant Integration Policy Index).
  • High Quality of Life
    The standard of living in Canada is amongst the highest in the world. We consistently rank in the top five on the United Nation's Human Development Index, which measures life expectancy, literacy, education and standards of living for countries worldwide.
  • Economic Stability
    When compared to the USA and UK, we are a less expensive country to live/study, have higher GDP growth, and lower unemployment. It makes financial sense to choose Canada as your destination of study.
  • Opportunities to Work
    International students can turn their study permit into a work permit immediately after graduation. Unlike the USA or the UK, students who complete a degree in Canada are able to remain and work here for up to the length of the study program.
