The Brock University Goodman MBA was first offered in 2003, making the program just over a decade old.  Brock is a smaller MBA program in Canada, with ~100 students making up the Full-Time program.  Brock does not require applicants to have work experience to apply to the MBA program and will waive their GMAT requirement for qualified candidates.

Roughly 100 kms from Toronto, Goodman will place a majority of their students in the Greater Toronto Area and the Niagara regions of Ontario.  While they do list a number of employers and sample positions on their website, Goodman doesn't breakdown their employment figures in any great detail.  From looking at some of their sample positions of MBA graduates (and their average student age of 26) I would venture to guess that they have included their Part-Time MBA students in this list.


Summary

Brock/Goodman is an AACSB accredited school, so the quality of education should be quite good.  Reputation-wise, Goodman is not one of the top Schools in Ontario, but does offer tuition that is well below the top-tier MBA programs in Ontario.  With an average age of 26 and no specific work experience requirement, Goodman would be a good school to consider for those who have recently graduated from University (especially recent graduates from a Canadian or American school with a GPA of 80% or higher - you would meet their GMAT waiver requirements).
