    MY TIME AT THE I.H. ASPER SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

    I decided to pursue my graduation from Canada because of family connections there. I did a lot of research before applying to the university. The GPA of 9 in my B.B.A degree helped me a lot in getting through the admission process. I had applied at the university through an online application form. An application fee of around $120 was also paid by me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I have loved all the benefits of the experiential approach to learning. I learned to tackle real issues and develop tangible solutions for businesses in Manitoba and across the globe. One thing I can assure of is that this is the most versatile course in entire Canada. Some of them which you have the option to learn are international and emerging markets, sustainability, entrepreneurship, and innovation.

    BEST TEACHERS AT THE BEST UNIVERSITY

    After completing BBA, I developed a keen interest in business-related subjects. Therefore I decided to pursue my master's in the same field. I applied for a few business schools in Canada and got selected in two to three of them. Then I took admission at the University of Manitoba. The application form cost me $100.

This innovative curriculum structure ensures me to experience various themes and functional areas through the cross-pollinating elective courses. With this, I am also getting to tailor my electives according to my interests.
