Indian Students Prefer Pursuing Higher Education in Canada

November 2017, 21
EMAIL  Print A+
Canada has pursued a plan of inviting international students in an aggressive manner during the past. Some progress has been achieved after President Trump adopted the protectionist language in the US. Following the strict visa norms for the students in the UK, Canada was successful to attract a big share among MBA students from India in 2017.  The Rotman School of Management, of Toronto University, has 56 Indian MBA students in a class of 350. Even the John Molson School of Business of Concordia University and the Alberta School of Business have seen the increase of applications from India.

There is a sizable presence of Indian MBA students in the Haskayne School of Business of Calgary University.

Expert Consultants say that almost 30% of clients have included Canadian MBA programs as an option for the 2017 admissions when compared with 10% during 2015.  Ted Sargent, the Vice President, University of Toronto said that Canada is increasing its appeal internationally. When other nations have adopted an inward-looking approach, Canada has planned an increased immigration quota to attract the best talent in the world.

The protectionist stand taken up by the Trump administration has become a huge contributing factor, leading India to show an increased interest in Canada, for its students. Based on the Annual Report of the Institute of International Education, the number of new international students, to get enrolled in US institutions, saw a decline by 10,000, to 2.91 lakh in 2016. Canadian schools have welcomed the growing inflow of students from India. 

Christopher Lynch, Director, Alberta School of Business feels that India is an important market for Canadian MBA programs. India and China are large international markets. The students who considered the US/UK schools now prefer to study in Canada.

A major share of applications is from the students of Indian origin and the students cite visa rules and multicultural society of Canada as the reasons to apply for Canadian schools. Canada is a safe, stable and inclusive nation.  In November 2016, Canada modified its points-based Express Entry process of immigration and has started to give additional points to Canadian university graduates while they apply for PR.

An automatic work permit of three-years after the education of two years in Canada is attractive. This is especially true owing to the uncertainties involved in obtaining a US work visa.

In the past, only the students having relatives in Canada had applied. Presently, all students who apply for the US also submit an application for Canada. Canada has impressive MBA programs.

Murray MacTavish, Director, School of Business, Trinity Western University, says that a compelling reason for admitting Indian students was that they are in fact, ideal candidates. They are proficient in English, have market experience, and an understanding of the western culture as well as its business, besides knowing international business also.

In this scenario, it is wise to pursue MBA in Canada and emerge in flying colors, to tackle the challenges of present-day business. Please contact us, for all guidance and information, to realize the dream of migrating to Canada.
