Hi! Glad you're exploring your MBA options in Canada. 

So, about the GMAT, here's the scoop: whether or not it's waived really depends on the school and program you're interested in. 

Certain programs may offer an 'MBA GMAT Waiver' " if you've got a hefty amount of professional experience under your belt. They recognize that what you've learned and accomplished in the workforce speaks volumes. 

However, Each university has its unique criteria. In Canada, several prestigious schools offer MBA programs without requiring a GMAT score, provided specific criteria are met like Queen’s University, Schulich School of Business, New York Institute of Technology, Lakehead University & Thompson Rivers University Business and Economics.

As your guide on this exciting journey, I'm here to help you navigate these requirements and put together an application that showcases your strengths, work experience included. Remember, every path to an MBA is unique, and yours is no exception!

Sure!

Let me brief it to you about the GMAT and MBA in Canada in a simpler way. The GMAT is a test that some schools want you to take before you can start an MBA, which is a business degree. But in Canada, not every school asks for it.

Some schools might let you skip the GMAT if you've worked in important jobs for many years or if you did really well in your previous studies. Every school has its own rules about this. Some might still say you need to take the GMAT, no matter what, because it helps them see if you're ready for their MBA program.

If you're hoping to not take the GMAT, you should check the website of the school you want to go to or talk to them directly. They'll tell you exactly what they need. Even without the GMAT, making your application strong in other ways is also important.

So, in short, yes, some MBA programs in Canada might let you not take the GMAT, but it really depends on the school. Always good to check with them first!
