Canada's leading business schools will present MBA opportunities as a part of the multi-city MBA Showcase Tour in Bengaluru on 25 November 2017. This tour began in Delhi and covered Kolkata, Chandigarh and Mumbai. This is the third edition of the only Canadian MBA fair organised by the High Commission of Canada in India in association with the Indo-Canadian Business Chamber (ICBC).
The MBA showcase tour will provide an excellent opportunity for young professionals, entrepreneurs and students aspiring for a foreign management degree. It will enable them to meet with representatives of Canadian institutions and learn about Canadian MBA programs. Over the course of this event, attendees can take part in interactive sessions on a range of subjects such as admissions, visa procedures, and career opportunities.
Canada is internationally recognized for a competency-based teaching approach with credentials that are globally recognized for providing a world-class education. The delegates representing Canada's elite MBA programs as well as representatives from the High Commission of Canada in India will be available to interact with MBA aspirants.
Interestingly, Indian students are increasingly seeing Canada as a destination for a high quality education at an affordable cost, in a safe, welcoming and multicultural environment. Over 25,000 study permits were issued to young Indians in 2014. This is a six-fold increase from 2005 and represents the attractiveness of Canada as a study destination for young Indians. Canada has been receiving record numbers of study permit applications in 2016.
