Work experience is not a requirement for getting admission to Canada for international students. Still, it

can indeed be advantageous to your application, especially when your work experience corresponds to

the subject you wish to pursue in MBA .

The weightage of professional experience varies from institution to institution. While some universities

prefer applicants that have relevant experience, others are indifferent. However, the institutions do give

weightage for the work.
