Cheapest MBA in Canada without TOEFL and with GRE
Hi All,

I am an Engineering Graduate-Mechanical having around 6 years exp. in total, but the experience is in field of IT Service Delivery and Operations. To further enhance my skills, I want to do MBA in Operations from Canada from the college which is cheap and admission is easily available. Admission procedure should start from August ie. 2004 and admission procedure is completed by November/December ie. 2004. Earlier I had given TOEFL and GRE also, but the TOEFL Score does'nt hold valid now. GRE Score was 1800 and is valid till Dec 2004.

Pls suggest and help me get admission in Canada

Regards/Anuj Gupta

What good will it do you to do your MBA from the 'cheapest' institute? "Cheapest" in money will also be cheapest in quality. Simply getting an MBA does not relly help you get a job. Just as it in India, here too it is the institute that matters.

i could write on this subject for hours and hours, as it has been the subject of many conversations i have had.

does it matter at which institute you study? if you went to a 'prestigious' institute, of course, you will say it matters. but in the end this is simply self-promotion, right?

i could argue that it is the man himself that is more important.

if an employer THINKS a degree from such and such a university is better than others, then it will matter. i know of cases where major corporations FAVOR graduates from a certain university and actually do much of their recruiting on the campus of that university.

but that having been said, i have met so many people from "the school of life" or the "school of hard knocks" who are very successful without any fancy degree that it puts in doubt any theory that you have to go to a particular school to succeed.

if you are a self-made man then it doesn't matter what school you went to... right?

every year 800 students graduate from Harvard law school; the top 100 go to work at the most prestigious companies in the states... and the other 700? i suppose they are pounding the pavement and fretting over paying off their loans... there are no guarantees in life. your qualifications don't matter so much as what you do with them.

any thoughts on this? it is a question that i have long wondered about... esp. since i have two children who will one day go to university :)

First of all you cannot do your MBA without a TOEFL and GMAT ( and not GRE). However, u have only one recourse. Learn french and then you can join the MBA program of the University of Ottawa. YOu will, of cos, have to take all courses in French (some in english also) and also write your thesis in French !
BUt thats easier said than done. I think they check ur proficiency in French.

Sukh,
The info listed on the website is incorrect.
I am quite sure that you need GMAT scores for admission to the U of T program as well as the U of O program

I agree, the best 'name' isn't necessarily the best school. Most companies today are realizing that many graduates depend on the name of their 'institution' to get a job instead of themselves.

I mean, put it this way. Two Universities, A and B, A has a leading reputation and B has an average reputation.

A student in Uni A has a GPA equivalent of a C and a student in Uni B has a GPA equivalent of an A, both in the same program/field of study.

Do you think the employer really cares if you came from a pretigious UNI that you pretty much just barely survived? Whereas the student in Uni B excelled at the field, even though it was not from the greatest uni?

Many people from these "prestigous Uni's" don't have a "prestigious GPA" or expertise to go along with their degrees, and hide behind the UNI's name.

Employers are catching this and many of them don't really care because they realize that all professional education is accredited by single-body institutions. For Engineering, it's the PEO, for Medecine they have their own, Business their own and so forth. Each UNI must maintain a standard within these bodies, or else they would eventually lose their right to grant degrees in those field of study. Employers realize this, and know that even uni's that are not so prestigiuos if they're still in the realm of granting degrees in that field of study, they're probably doing well (many uni's have lost their licenses to grant certain degrees, ie; UofT for Aerospace Engineering).

Employers are also aware that many graduates from prestigious universities have a tendency to possess cocky "know it all" attitude, that they do not want to deal with. Sometimes going to a "prestigious" university could detrimentally affect your chances.

However, going to the "cheapest" isn't necessarily a wise idea either. Cheap could also imply, lack of facilities, low-grade environment, inexperienced professors, or in many cases very expensive fees in other areas (where they must make tuition cheaper), ie; books, computers, internet access, residency, commuting, gas, lifestyle etc.

Dear Anuj

The above posts are pretty clear in themselves.

I think that you may require an acceptable IELTS - Academic module score and a GMAT score.

If "Cheap" is the keyword then there are many in India itself. Ghaziabad for one - if you are in Etah.

Name of an institute DOES count - whether we are willing to accept it or not. Dont you try and go to a good reputed doctor, or the authorised showroom, buy a costly appliance with a guarantee (which doesnt mean that it is fail proof - but simply a peace of mind that the item has been tested or made by a reputed company) or send your children to a reputed school ? The good schools teach things in a different way - and you have to see thoe students to realise what they are made of and what the institute further makes them into. Lets not demean them please.

Yes the "weathered and school of life" people are there in abundance but they usually have go to senior levels by sticking to jobs & climbing the ladder or by switching from one job to another in Marketing (which is where they can show "results" - by "kitna bika";)

However, the weathered ones are people who claim "ground" experience & who tend to do things by their "knowledge" .

While economics, logistics, operations and research required to run a business house are a different cup of tea altogether - Big corps have a lot at stake and dont run on mere experience, USUALLY.

If these people were accepted everywhere - why arent Indians getting more jobs in Canada ? Why the need for WES evaulation and why the need for a brand name ?

While theres no denying that the "school of life" do make thier mark - if given an opportunity - however an employer would like to see credentials rather than take a guy at face value.

So its becomes essential to have a qualification from an institute of repute to get you to the interview panel of a high repute business name. Lower the grade and name of the degree - lower is grade of the business willing to hire you.

So Anuj, if cheap is the rule, try and stick to India or online degrees- however if you are planning to get into Canada "to study" and then immigrate - TO PHIR THEEK RAASTE PAR HO - If this be the reason, then there are other colleges which you can join with ease without so much of requirements.

Regards

SF

Anuj,

I dont know what your reasons r for trying to get into a cheap university which doesnt even have stringent requirements for admission.

However I do know one thing that u can find all ur answers if u do a bit of research and communicate with the univs directly rather than posting on this site.

And dear Ottawa_nerd , one does not need to know french to go to the MBA program at U of Ottawa. I had got admission there and i dont know a word of french.

Thanks
