Sprott doesn't report their career statistics in much detail, but they do report an average salary of $61,000.  Given that work experience isn't a program requirement (meaning they will tend to have younger applicants), that amount isn't surprising.  With a required internship, Sprott should have good relationships with employers in Ottawa and is not far from both Toronto and Montreal.


There are a large number of MBA programs in Ontario, which makes it a very competitive marketplace to attract students.   Sprott is not one of the top programs in Ontario, but does offer a good option for those with limited work experience.  It is also a good program to consider if you are interested in International Development.  Not only is Carleton well-known in this area, but most international aid and development organizations in Canada are based in Ottawa (it is Canada's capital city).
