Thank you very much for your reply and guidance. I am now positive towards Ryerson's MBA. I had heard so many rumors about its reputation and other stuff so I really wanted to talk to someone who has actually taken this course. I have already applied to Ryerson's global MBA program (fulltime) a week ago and waiting to hear back from them. I didn't apply to MBA in technology and innovation as I had never heard of such program so was a bit scared to apply for that. Moreover, I didn't know what is its market value. So, as you said my profile seems fine, I am hoping to get an admission offer from Ryerson. Do they call for interview as well? On their website it says "an interview may be required". I also want to know if I can get any financial assistance from the University if I am selected. It will be so nice of you if you could let me know.
For the MTI program, the info is at ryerson.ca/mba/programs/mti - if you're interested, maybe try to contact them and see if they will consider you for both? The staff is very approachable.
As to the interview, I never had to go to one but I do hear it's a possibility. The application process goes through a couple of stages. First you apply to the School of Graduate Studies and when they accept you, you move on to the MBA department. So it's at that stage that I assume an interview might occur. In regards to financial assistance, as a full-time student, there's quite a few $20,000 scholarships that cover your entire tuition and then I think you may able to able to receive OSAP or bursaries from the school, but for that I'm not sure, you would need to contact the Student Financial Services office.
The program is still in its infancy which is why you might have heard rumours. But I'll tell you first hand, that none of that those are true. Every staff and faculty member in the program wants to see us succeed. In fact, this past weekend we competed against 22 other MBA schools across Canada and US and we came in 2nd place overall, ahead of a lot of older and more popular MBA programs. I'll let you draw your own conclusions
