Andres Sanchez Vasco wanted to study in an immigrant-friendly country, where he and his wife could legally live and work while pursuing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. With those criteria in mind, Canada ranked at the top of his list.

When comparing other countries, the welcoming rules that allow postsecondary students to work in Canada for up to three years upon graduation from a full-time program, with spouses permitted to work as well, Vasco knew Canada was the place for him and his family.

Canada is gaining ground in appealing to global MBA candidates, due to the competitive tuition costs, and favorable study and work rules. The increased interest is a welcoming trend for Canadian business universities, several that have flat or decreasing domestic demand for full-time MBA programs.

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) recently reported that international applications to Canada increased 16.5 percent this year over 2017. Asia-Pacific schools only rose 15.1 percent, and the U.S. saw a decrease of 10.5 percent.

Gregg Schoenfeld, a director of research for GMAC said it is not a political thing. “We have seen a shift away from the U.S. as quality education has been growing outside the U.S., and economic conditions are changing.” Immigration is a great way of receiving the best options for life.
