US & Canada
The US & Canada are the first and third most popular MBA study destinations among international applicants, respectively.

With that legacy come many of the world’s best-known business schools and the most established employment market for graduates. Indeed, QS research suggests that the US & Canada’s market for MBAs expanded by 26% across 2014/15 with a further growth of 14% anticipated over 2015/16.

MBA in North America Vs. MBA in Europe
Choosing to study an MBA in the US & Canada allows a candidate enormous access to some of the best business schools in the world. Generally, though there are exceptions, North American courses are two years in duration, compared with the European model, which usually has courses that are one year in length. These schools believe that the two-year option allows for a deeper level of understanding of oneself, time for self-reflection, time to build up solid networks with other students and professors, and to look deeper at the subject matter in hand. These courses will almost always help students find internships during the intermediate summer, a situation that the European model will not always be able to offer. With such a rich history and high standards of education, studying an MBA in North America has great benefits.
