National Black MBA

There are 38 university based business schools in Canada and each year over 15,000 Canadians write GMAT exams for entrance to MBA or EMBA programs. In addition, up to 60% of students enrolled in Canadian business schools are international students and over 70% of prospective students obtain their information from the internet. While there are a number of international sites dedicated to MBA programs (and rankings) there was no site dedicated to Canadian schools and their programs. Canadianbusinessschools.com is designed to fill that information gap and provide prospective students with a balanced look at the university based business schools and their programs and help them make an informed choice of the school and the program that best fits their needs.

"Richardson Prep Center – Toronto, Canada "Success Favors The PREPared™ Mind!"The Richardson Prep Centre was founded in 1979, is based in Toronto, Canada and runs GMAT preparation courses in Toronto and other Canadian locations. Incredibly, we are close to our 30 year anniversary of GMAT teaching.

 

We have taught GMAT preparation courses for longer than any company of which we are aware (with the possible exception of Kaplan). As a result, we offer by far the most experienced teachers in the industry. In addition to our complete GMAT programs, we offer specialty modules in GMAT combinatorics, Remedial GMAT math, GMAT 800 Problem Solving Module and the GMAT Verbal Topics.

In addition to GMAT preparation we also provide test preparation courses for: LSAT, GRE and MCAT.

It should be noted that MBA programs are beginning to accept the GRE instead of the GMAT as part of the admissions process. For further details see:
