MBA in Canada
Considering Canada as your study destination?
Canada is a melting pot of cultures and landscapes, where just one-third of its citizens actually self-identify as Canadian and whose national parks are often larger than entire countries. The colonial history of this vast swathe of land means that Canada has two official languages: English; spoken in the majority of the country, and French; mainly spoken in the eastern region of Quebec. It also has one of the highest per-capita immigration rates in the world, partly due to being one of a diminishing number of first-world countries to actively promote its virtues. Which, if you’re an international student, certainly makes for good reading.
Luckily for you, the country is also a globally-recognized area for higher education. The University of Toronto, McGill University and the University of British Columbia all rank amongst the top 50 schools worldwide, and the fact that all three are located in different cities illustrates the depth of teaching excellence throughout Canada. And with a strong job market for university graduates to enter, we reckon you’ll even be able to enjoy the cold Canadian weather once you’ve got your Master’s/MBA in the bag.
