Immigration from Dubai to Canada - Job prospects & Education?

Dear All,

Thank you for taking time out to view this topic.

I am 27/M/Indian, based in Dubai (UAE). Completed my B.Sc in Marketing (2004). Currently employed as a Sales & Marketing Executive in the Valet Parking industry, having a total work experience of 4 years till date.

I am looking to migrate to canada and would like to know the job prospects and if possible further do any specialised course to help further my career.

Are there any universities in Canada, where i can do a part time MBA (Without GMAT)?

If not, please suggest viable options?

Appreciate your feedback and suggestions.

Thanking you in advance.


Sorry to be so negative but think twice before you choose Canada.  I too moved to Canada with a great education and experience and hoped for a good life.  No-one told me that 'international education or experience' are not valued here.  My degrees were earned in Australia but it was a fight to have them recognised.  I got no credit for my work experience though.  Everywhere you go for a job, there's the perenial question, "Do you have Canadian experience?"  This question is used to lock out so many foreighn trained, experienced professionals, it's a crime. 

Google 'notcanada' and you'll see what I mean.  I've lived in the USA and Australia and would go back there in a heartbeat but I have family obligations that keep me here.

Very good idea. Dont worry about jobs in Canada. I found one best job site in net . I saw lot of openings for engineering and all type of job seekers. It is useful to me .My friend got a job in Canada with the help of this site . If you are interested just try this site.
Wish you all the best for Getting job in Canada.,

There are many universities that do part-time MBA's. Interestingly, they sometimes cost more than a full time MBA...However, people are getting less excited about hiring MBA's because the market is a bit flooded with useless people with MBA's. It is very industry dependent. Try to do some research on salaries in your industry and whether an MBA is actually a benefit or not.

Sorry to say (as a Canadian), but Fern is totally right about international experience. Canadians can be quite insular (sadly..), and employers often don't see the benefit of international experience, unless you are working for an international company. However, as the country is so big there are many large companies which are not on the international market at all (with the exception of the USA, which doesn't count as international experience).

Hope this helps,
