A lot has changed over the past few years. Unsurprisingly, tuition levels have continued to rise. For some of the best known programs in Canada, tuition is now $100,000+ for international students and getting close (or over $100k at Rotman) for Canadian students. Canada has become an increasingly popular study destination for International students, attracting more and more students who would traditionally looked at British or American schools. There has been a big increase in flexible MBA programs, specialized Master's degrees and programs shifting towards shorter and shorter completion times (roughly 1/3rd of full-time MBA programs in Canada can be completed in one-year).
There has also been a big change in the overall ranking of Canadian MBA programs globally. The Financial Times has seen a large number of Chinese and Indian programs enter the rankings (and rank quite highly), pushing Canadian programs further down the top 100 lists. I'll go into this in more detail in a future post, but the biggest factor affecting Canadian schools in the rankings has been alumni salary.
With all the changes over the past few years, I feel like now is a great time to revisit this site. What hasn't changed in the past few years is my technical web skills. So I'm looking forward to not only going over what's been happening on the Canadian MBA scene, but broadening my own web skill set (and possibly moving over to Wordpress).
