The job market in Montreal really isn’t that bad – if you want a job, you can definitely find one. One that you like, though, now that’s a different story! And something that actually pays well enough for your lifestyle aspirations? It feels like it’s almost impossible sometimes.
That’s why we’ll definitely be attending these two awesome events put on by the QS World MBA Tour and World Grad School Tour. They’re basically two events that help answer all of your questions about MBAs and grad schools. They’re both huge, 25 grad schools and 15 MBA programs from all over the world send representatives every year. Schools like NYU, U of T, Mcgill and more will be in attendance. Plus – most important of all, it’s completely free!
Nowadays an undergrad diploma feels like the bare minimum that an employer expects and definitely does not guarantee a well-paying career. And let’s be real, grad school and MBAs are not exactly cheap – I’m not even just talking the monetary costs but the sheer amount of time you invest into them. So if you’re going to bite the bullet and start a program, you really should take the time to learn as much as possible about it and get all of your questions answered what to expect.
So, what can you expect from the events? My favorite aspect is that in both, you get to talk to real students that are in the middle of their programs and really learn what your day-to-day could look like for the next couple of years. You also get to talk to admissions officers, get advice on your application and learn how to apply to the huge pot of scholarships available – totalling 7 million dollars (yes, you read that right)!
Montreal's World MBA Tour, answering any and all questions you have about getting an MBA, will take place January 31st at the DoubleTree by Hilton Montreal (formerly known as Hyatt Regency) from 5:00 PM until 8:30 PM; to register for FREE, click here.
Montreal's World Grad School Tour, which will serve to inform you about grad school (so, any master's degree that isn't related to a business program), will be going down on January 20th at the Sofitel Montreal Golden Mile, 12:30 PM to 6:00 PM. You can register for FREE here.
They’ve put on these events for the past couple years and they’re always packed, so online registration is highly recommended as spaces are limited. There are some walk-in slots available on the day of, but if you're looking to guarantee you’ll get inside, don’t risk it and head to their website to register for the MBA and Grad School events ASAP!
