Canadian MBA Programs Pursuing Students From India

Canadian MBA Programs Pursuing Students From India

Changes restricting United States and UK student visas have resulted in Canadian schools welcoming more students from India:

Canada has been able to attract 20-30% more MBA students from India this year

According to the Economic Times,

  • University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, 56 of the 350 MBA students in the class of 2019 are Indian
  • Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business in Montreal, applications from India rose by about 30% in fall 2017
  • 51% of the applications to the full-time MBA offered at the Alberta School of Business in Edmonton came from India
  • University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business reports that 60-70% of its international MBA students are Indian

Admissions consultant Rashmi Seshadri told the Economic Times:

Canada has stood out among western destinations as a safe, inclusive and stable country. In November 2016, Canada amended its points-based ‘Express Entry’ immigration to award extra points to graduates of Canadian universities when they apply for permanent residency. Additionally, an automatic three-year work permit after two years of education in Canada is increasingly more attractive, given the growing uncertainties in the U.S. work visa landscape.” m

In order to study in Canada, international students usually require a study permit. This is a document available only after a college, university, or other accredited educational institution has accepted you.

Calgary immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah says MBA students from India are highly desirable future permanent residents of Canada:

International graduate students are ideal immigrant candidates to settle and integrate successfully into Canada's labour market and society. These highly educated and motivated students often want to become permanent residents of Canada and work or build their own business and help build a stronger Canada.

Express Entry is Canada's skilled-worker immigration application system, launched in January 2015, to attract high-skilled foreign workers and former international students who want to live in Canada permanently and whose in-demand skills are needed by employers across the country.

Evelyn Ackah and firm have been one of the most caring and considerate and most knowledgeable and responsive firms that we have had the pleasure of dealing with.

What stands out the most about Evelyn and her team is the level of care and personal attention that is generally lacking in other firms. In several situations and in times of crisis Evelyn's response and speed of achieving results has been most astonishing.

We are so greatly impressed and most satisfied. As for value of what we receive there are none that compare to Evelyn Ackah's firm.
