STEP 1: RESEARCH on and SHORTLIST your list of CANADA MBA programs. For a list of over CANADA MBA programs with their approximate tuition cost and GMAT requirement, check MBA in CANADA
Our help: We will help you shortlist the right Canadian MBA programs based on your interest area, career plan, short and long-term goals, current academic background and scores, budget, more. We provide a list of AMBITIOUS, MODERATE and SAFE MBA options for you to select from and help you finalize the last list of 8 (sometimes 10) MBA programs
STEP 2: BOOK TEST DATES for your GMAT and TOEFL or IELTS. Generally, students do the research on schools after knowing their GMAT score. We recommend you do it the other way round. Ideally, your GMAT preparation should go alongside your B-School shortlisting. Learn it all here about GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS
Our help: We coach you for these tests. We help you finalize the right test dates and register for the same. We help you with shortlisting the right Business Schools in Canada concurrently providing you reasons on why you should select the specific MBA programs
STEP 3: POPULATE the admission requirements including essay questions (or SOP requirement) for each University and COLLECT admission documents that include sealed transcript (from your degree college – as many copies as the number of Universities you are applying to), recommendation letters (check STEP 4 below), CV (updated), passport copy (scan – front and last page), marksheets (all – scan them, may be required at a later date), work experience letter (s), etc. Check out the full list of documents required for applying to Canadian Universities
Our help: We will populate the requirement for each MBA program that you are applying to and will submit it to you in the form of a grid for easy viewing with options to keep updating the file. Information includes Graduate Admission Link, Online Application Link, Deadlines, No. of LORs needed, GMAT/TOEFL Codes, Address to post any document, Essay questions, SOP requirements, and anything that we feel will be very useful to you – saving your time and energy (so that you could concentrate more on your main admission process). We will check all the documents you are collecting or answer any queries that you keep having during the process. We will provide the requisite formats / samples of CV, SOP, essays, LORs, etc. We also help you with your credential evaluation (WES).
Note on Credential Evaluation: Some universities may ask for an “academic credential evaluation” or a “course by course evaluation”. This needs to be done through WES, as required by the university. You will have to send your academic documents to these bodies who, for a fee of between CAD$ 245, will convert your scores to the Canadian Grading system. They will then report these scores to the universities you ask them to for an additional fee.
STEP 4: Begin ONLINE or PAPER Applications for each University. REGISTER your referees online and/or collect the recommendation letters (on the letter headed paper of the Company / Institution). Most top Canadian B-Schools prefer online method of submitting recommendations. You will need to register each referee (using their company / institutional email – no yahoo, gmail or outlook) and your referees will receive an email with instructions to submit the recommendation letter online. Through your online application portal, you will be able to see if your referee has ‘started’ with the recommendation submission or has ‘completed’ the recommendation letter submission process
Our help: We assist you in filling the application forms correctly. We discuss on who should be the right referee based on your profile, work undertaken at your organization (s), etc. We edit any content that you wish us to look at. We check your forms thoroughly and explain the plan of action that you need to follow for each University application submission
STEP 5: WRITE your ESSAYS or Personal Statement. Each University may ask you to write from 1 to 4 essays. Thus, if you are applying to 8 #BSchools you may end up writing about 18 to 24 essays. Many Universities also have video interviews, or creative essays (eg. PPT presentation). Essay writing will be the longest process. Top MBA programs are very keen on knowing YOU well and the better the content of essays, the better are your chances of admissions to your dream MBA program
Our Help: We do limitless iterations to the essays. Every essay is checked, reviewed, edited, or suggested content is discussed. We keep brainstorming with you. Ask any of our students and they will say we help you bring out crisp and the finest essays. Canadian essay editing is a two way process. You keep sending us the essays and we keep reviewing them critically. For creative essays, we come with ideas and guide you through the process of creating them. For video interviews, we provide mock sessions (over skype, facetime or face-to-face). We also help you with your scholarship essay and application!
STEP 6: Check and SUBMIT each application before the deadline. Your referees should also submit their recommendations before the application deadline. REPORT your GMAT and TOEFL or IELTS scores online through the testing agencies (eg. ETS, Britsh Council, IDP, Pearson Vue). Your Canadian BSchool should receive the online score report before the application deadline. POST your transcript and other necessary documents to the right address (some Universities do not require anything to be couriered to them until they have made a decision)
Our Help: We check your application, find errors (if any) and help you correct them and suggest you on the next steps after the submissions. We help you report your scores online. We check your documents before they are dispatched to the University
STEP 7: FOLLOW UP with the Universities and ensure that they have received your documents and that nothing is missing. SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION – some Canadian Universities need you to finish a separate scholarship application; so keep an eye on it and keep searching for opportunities
Our Help: At this stage, it is important to keep an eye on your emails and application portals as sometimes you may be missing some information. We help you solve any issues that come up. We help you with any scholarship or funding applications at this stage. We keep sharing any useful information or opportunities that come up
STEP 8: INTERVIEWS. This is your final step before receiving an acceptance or rejection. Most top MBA programs require you to attend an interview, which could be over skype, telephone call, or sometimes in-country personal interviews. In general, these interviews can be conducted by the admissions committee or can be alumni interviews
Our Help: Our students keep reaching this stage. We have a list of questions that students are being asked from a large no. of popular business school. We offer you mock rounds and provide some great interview tips. We help you raise the bar! We correct you, we inspire you, we prepare you!
STEP 9: FINAL DECISION. Collect admission offers and keep an eye on the deadline to accept or decline the admission. Plan your next move (visa process, accommodation, etc.)
Our Help: This is a very important stage. The dilemma is when you get more than one admission offer. Our students generally do and we get in to the discussion about which should be the best option considering all the factors (including the changes that happened since you started your MBA applications to the current time)
STEP 10: PAY the required deposit as required by the University
Our Help: We will help you make this crucial decision and also guide you on the financial matters, including how to transfer the deposit and getting you a confirmation from the University
STEP 11: Undergo an upfront Medical by contacting a Panel Physician.
Our Help: We will give you list of Approved Physicians.
STEP 12: Prepare your financial documents for the Study visa application. Book a student visa appointment after 1 week of medicals. An interview by the Canadian Consulate may be required in few cases. Prepare well
Our Help: We will help you finalize your financial and other documents according to the requirements of the study visa, check if they are in order and guide you in filling the Study visa form and conduct mock visa interview sessions in case there is an interview call and thoroughly prepare you for the visa application and interview
Step 13: BOOK accommodation, flight tickets, buy forex, do your travel insurance, do the required vaccinations if any (your university will have sent you this information about the required vaccinations)
Our Help: We guide you as much as possible with all of the above
STEP 14: FLY. Once you receive the visa, celebrate, buy your stuff, pack your bags, and fly
Our Help: We will provide a pre-departure brief (eg. what to carry when you are going, about life in the CANADA, etc.), help you connect with other students going to CANADA. Enough! We can’t fly for you. But what we can surely do is – stay connected!
