Need Serious Help for my Future [#permalink]

I found this forum just few days ago and finding this extremely useful. At the same time i m cursing myself that i found this Forum so late. But anyways, better late than never.
I am a Mechanical Engineer, completed my engineering with good GPA, have two years of Job experience. But unfortunately becuase of some domestic problems, i left my Job and my education stopped . Now after setting up all the problems i need to start my education again and wish to pursue my MBA degree. But it seems that getting into good School GMAT is a mandatory requirement along with Toefl. Well, i m a Non-Native speaker so it would take me atleast 6-8 months for preparing for GMAT. But i don't want my this time to be wasted, so i would like to ask you people that is there any suitable program or short-term course related to MBA which i can do prior to MBA so that i save my time until i finish my GMAT and application process which may take upto one year and also that would be of much help to my MBA program as i don't even have the ABC's of Business.
I heard about CFA and CPA but I really don't have any idea what these courses are and will they be of any help if done prior to my MBA degree?
I am in Canada. Plz i need your guidance. Any short-term program, any diploma, any thing which turn-out to be useful before pursuing my MBA program.
Any advise , help or suggestion will highly be appreciated.
What is your career objective, Tsipkis? Why do you want an MBA?
For example, if you want to remain in engineering and get into managment then there's no point in getting a CFA or CPA. Or do you have some other specific career in mind?
Also, do you have access to a college nearby? If you just want to learn some basics about business prior to your MBA, you could enroll in undergrad finance, accounting, and economics classes just to start learning.
Of course, there are libraries of good stuff to read on your own, informally. That's how I've learned most of what I know about business topics (and I have a degree in business economics.)
