Located in Ottawa, the capital of Canada, the Telfer School of Management offers “a great place for learning with such a dynamic environment.” Students are drawn to the “triple accreditation” (AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS) and the fact that the school is “bilingual” meaning the “MBA [is] available in French.” The program has a “strong focus on global environment,” a “solid reputation relative to other schools in the area,” and a “low cost of tuition.” It’s “location in the national capital region” offers many “connections with local industry and the federal government.” Consequently, “a lot of government workers” attend the program. “Because of the triple accreditation the school has, we get a lot of international students,” one student explains. “This allows us to work and interact with many diverse cultures that we would normally not be exposed to. In a global marketplace, this is invaluable and should serve me well.”

The “dedicated professors” are “available and reliable” and a real “pillar of strength and wisdom.” The majority of the faculty are “well versed in their areas” and “showcase some of the brightest in their respective fields.” “There are some very knowledgeable professors at this school who go the extra mile to connect with students and,” one happy student reports. The administration is also “available and courteous,” making an overall “very well organized administrative support unit.”

The MBA at University of Ottawa is an intensive “one-year program,” which “means less time out of the workforce.” Despite the short program, the program “still incorporates a large practical component (consulting project and international trip).” The school places students in teams “for the duration of the program” which lets students “combine our strengths to overcome our weaknesses.” It is also worth noting that the University of Ottawa is “very good at supporting partners and acknowledging the toll of an MBA on families.” One student sums up their experience succinctly: “I just have two words: ‘NET AWESOME’!”
