Hi everyone, this is my first post here on gmatclub and it goes directly to the point
About a month ago I've decided to move to Vancouver next year for a job opportunity with a friend of mine and to keep on my studies I also decided to match working with studying, since I've concluded my 4 years minimum work-experience that most universities claim for entering their programs and have already finished a well-avaliated business mba course in Brazil.

I readed a bit about both universities that have the business management graduate programs and I'm in a bind between these two
Simon Fraser University and University of Britsh Columbia... The fees are a way more expensive on UBC but that's not the point for me since I'm investing on qualification, but the point is that the average work-experience time for UBC is 7 years.

I've been following a lot the gmatclub forum and started my studies by my own but I'm considering to start a program in Brazil that prepares students for GMAT test, plus admissions requirements assistance, called MBA HOUSE.

The main point for me besides reaching a reasonable score on the official test is to get the chance to get approved before I move there so I don't waste time I could already be involved on my studies and my worry is that due to having less work-experience time than most students may be a reason for my repproval. Does anyone have informations about these universities? Opinions and tips are very welcome and thanks to all informations provided in here, it's helping me a lot on building my study-pan.

What are your long-term career and life goals? Do you intend to stay and work in Vancouver permanently or do you see yourself moving somewhere else?

I understand you intend to work with a friend study while working. But a clearer picture of your reasons for choosing move to Canada and more specifically Vancouver would help in responses.

I live in Vancouver and it can be an expensive and dejecting city to live in, never mind the played up media hype.
