Cons
1 as an international student, even if you get admission to the University of Toronto, you won't get a job. I am iim aluminum. I never got a job in my own field.
2 it takes a minimum of 5 years to achieve a decent lifestyle as in India, usually longer.

6 do not recognize any qualifications from your country, you have to enroll in a course.

11.You would regret coming here, I will attach a video link soon so you can understand what I mean

Before making any decision, watch the entire video with your family, don't waste time like this.

God bless you friend

There are two ways to do it. One is to follow the student route, which I would not recommend because you are already a graduate student. And to apply for a PR that I highly recommend, you would need 3 years of field experience in your finance, accounts, or management field. Give public relations a try if you have a trackable experience to showcase.

This question is really difficult to answer, especially in Canada. Some factors will come into play when that magic number is calculated. To name a few:

a. Your experience (not age, but experience):

This can be divided into two main parts: how long did you have useful / relevant experience and whether or not you have had team leadership experience. If you work as a management consultant fresh out of bachelor's degree for two to three years and then pursue your MBA, chances are you can earn a pretty good starting salary after graduation, no matter where you go.

On the other hand, if you are 30 years old t

This question is really difficult to answer, especially in Canada. Some factors will come into play when that magic number is calculated. To name a few:

a. Your experience (not age, but experience):

This can be divided into two main parts: how long did you have useful / relevant experience and whether or not you have had team leadership experience. If you work as a management consultant fresh out of bachelor's degree for two to three years and then pursue your MBA, chances are you can earn a pretty good starting salary after graduation, no matter where you go.

On the other hand, if you are 30 years old and spent most of your early career working in a food service area and later as a receptionist (not disrespecting you here, it's just that these professions don't train you in so many transferable skills), you will have a harder time finding a high paying job once you graduate.

Having the experience of a people manager will almost automatically place you in a managerial role, positively impacting your salary.

B. Your school / program: It's not just about prestige, but also a good sign to employers that you could be more competent compared to other people who attended lower-ranking schools. Additionally, higher-ranking schools typically have a stronger network to attract the best employers and better resources to help you prepare for interviews and polish your resume.

C. Your chosen profession:

Another important point here: if you become an investment banker, management consultant, private equity associate, you will do better than your peers on average, and vice versa. An ibanking analyst can earn 100k, and a senior analyst can easily break the 140k mark. I have a friend who is a senior associate at one of the major firms that focus on mid-caps, his package is roughly 200k a year, more or less.

On the other hand, if you become a materials analyst at a manufacturing company due to your own choice or perhaps the lack of it, you are looking for 65 ~ 75k, if you are lucky. Of course, you can still earn 90 ~ 110k as a materials manager in the same place if you already have a solid 5 years experience in that industry and have team leadership experience.

D. Your connection:

This is possibly the most important factor, and it is not independent, so I debated long and hard whether I wanted to make it a separate category. Well yes I did. Your connection helps you get a job. I got my current job through the connection, where he literally put my resume on my new manager's desk and told him all about me. I've been helping people connect with others since my consulting time, and made some successful internal referrals to bring good people to the companies I worked for. There's a caveat that brings us back to that this is not an independent factor (think linear algebra ... just kidding, don't think lin. Alg. Please). The better your experience, the stronger your connection. The better the school / program you attend, your classmates are likely to be more competent. They are all related to each other and it is difficult to focus on this one without putting a lot of effort into the others. What you should do is that, after taking care of the above factors, do everything possible to connect with people and maintain the connection that you establish.

That was a very long answer to a very simple question. So what can a Canadian MBA expect when exiting your program? The range it would give is 50k ~ 150k, big range, but this is the reality. If you went to Brock and did a one-year international MBA, you will likely find it more difficult to land a well-paying job and have to settle for a marketing associate job at a mid-size CPG company for 60,000 a year. If you've had management experience and graduated from McGill (and did well in school), chances are you can start as a senior management consultant at EY and earn a bonus of over 95k, which is sure to push you to more than six figures (this is AMAZING salary in the Montreal area, by the way).

Having said everything (my coffee break is over and my coffee isn't over yet, shit), being someone who's been through this (in the US, and then back to Canada for work), I think so Well salary is absolutely important, there are other skills you learn in school that will be beneficial, but will not immediately translate into financial reward upon graduation. However, five to ten years from now, you will see how this will be very helpful for your overall career. All the best my friend.

I have been actively researching this topic since moving to Canada from the US After extensive research on various sites (Poets and Quants: covering everything that matters in the world of business schools, with an in-depth analysis of B school rankings and full-time MBA programs, Google), attending Canadian school seminars in Toronto, speaking to alumni who are based in the US (LA / SFO where I want to land ), I have come to the conclusion that:

  1. Canadian MBA from a well-known school is equivalent to a mid to low level MBA school in the USA.

I have been actively researching this topic since moving to Canada from the US After extensive research on various sites (Poets and Quants: covering everything that matters in the world of business schools, with an in-depth analysis of B school rankings and full-time MBA programs, Google), attending Canadian school seminars in Toronto, speaking to alumni who are based in the US (LA / SFO where I want to land ), I have come to the conclusion that:

  1. Canadian MBA from a well-known school is equivalent to a mid to low level MBA school in the USA.
  2. MBA in Canada from a good Canadian school like Ivey School of Business, UofT Rotman or York University will lead to great prospects only in Canada.
  3. Canada is a very small economy compared to the United States and therefore such prospects are very limited and competitive in nature. Therefore, you may end up in a middle management job in Canada for the rest of your life.
  4. There are some people who have managed to move to the US But again they can manage to be in middle management positions, which is not so bad.
  5. Most Canadian MBAs cost as much as any degree from a top-tier American university that has greater prospects. Therefore, in my opinion, ROI is limited to low.
  6. Most Canadian universities, even the largest, are unknown to anyone outside of Canada. This is a disadvantage.
  7. Networks are local and limited. Therefore, you cannot expect to reap the benefits of it.

I am considering an MBA in the US as I don't want to limit my options. This has better prospects around the world.

Thanks for A2A!

Canada is one of the most immigrant-friendly countries in the world. Each year, tens of thousands of Indians (and other foreign nationalists) move to Canada to settle there because of a better quality of life with less racism, faster and easier public relations process, and pro-immigrant policies.

You can apply for Canadian PR from your home country (recommended if you plan to settle there). Canada's public relations relies on the points-based system (points for graduation, postgraduate, doctorate, years of experience, etc.) to attract the most diverse, highly educated and skilled.

Canada is one of the most immigrant-friendly countries in the world. Each year, tens of thousands of Indians (and other foreign nationalists) move to Canada to settle there because of a better quality of life with less racism, faster and easier public relations process, and pro-immigrant policies.

You can apply for Canadian PR from your home country (recommended if you plan to settle there). Canada's public relations relies on the points-based system (points for graduation, postgraduate, doctorate, years of experience, etc.) to attract the most diverse, highly educated and skilled cohort to reshape the Canadian economy.

Getting a job to post your MBA in India is extremely difficult, if not impossible. I would advise you to apply for the PR from India (or your home country) and move to Canada once you get the PR or proceed with the PR application process. In parallel, start contacting recruiters in Canada through LinkedIn or similar job platforms. Make sure you have solid work experience in your respective specialties before moving to Canada, as that would be one of the most differentiating factors in helping you get a job.

Alternatively, you can enroll in a course related to your field and try looking for a job while studying. Remember that Canada's economy is not in the best shape and many people (especially immigrants) are struggling to find a job that fits their experience.

Health!

I will answer your question in two parts.

  1. MBa to PGDM
  2. Jobs in Canada

You already have an MBA. Obtaining a PGDM would be considered a weakness, also not the best step for anyone who has studied twice in their MBA and now wants to study at a lower level just to enter Canada.

Instead, if you have work experience, use it to apply for a federal skilled worker visa and get your PR. The benefits of this route are: you will have the same right as a Canadian to work and study in Canada.

If you decide to do another masters, you don't pay international tuition fees, but local resident fees and there is a huge

  1. MBa to PGDM
  2. Jobs in Canada

Instead, if you have work experience, use it to apply for a federal skilled worker visa and get your PR. The benefits of this route are: you will have the same right as a Canadian to work and study in Canada.

If you decide to do another master's degree, you don't pay international tuition fees but local resident fees and there is a big difference in fees. Some cases are almost double.

The only thing you cannot do is vote in Canada as a representative, but if you eventually become a citizen, that right is available to you.

Second point - jobs - there are jobs, but no title can guarantee a job in the line of work you are looking for or in which you are interested. Canada has many jobs, but they rank highly in manual jobs.

Administrative jobs are less numerous and highly competitive.

Since you already have a master's degree, you can directly try to go with an express entry visa if you have a job or else you can do a 1-year pgdm in Canada to get the visa and settle there after that, securing a job. Having an MBA if you do masters with a large investment is not a good idea.

In case you want to learn or have an interest in a particular field to do masters, it is up to you. But it is better to do pgdm in any administration course and settle there.

And you have Mba in finance, finance is on the Canadian expert list so you can do any finance related pgdm too.

this is my personal opinion

Thanks

It could, but the certainty of obtaining a study permit is uncertain. You will see that after an MBA it would be natural to apply for another master's or doctorate. A PG Diploma can also be done in a related subject, but then the success of the study permit would decrease as the final decision would be in the hands of the visa officer.

I suggest you apply for another masters or doctorate.

  • There are 96 universities in Canada with many, many MBA courses among them.

    This is a searchable database.

    How to study in Canada
  • It doesn't say, but if you intend to try to stay in Canada after graduation, a one-year course may grant you a one-year work permit only, not to renew it.

    Play with the numbers and see where you will be after a year of study and a year of work.

    You need around 460 points to be able to stay, live and work in Canada.
