Queen's offers two MBA programs, along with their Executive MBA offerings.  Their Full-Time MBA program is offered in Kingston, Ontario every January and is one-year in length.  In addition, Queen's also offers an Accelerated MBA for Business Graduates that is a distance/residency program.  Also one-year in length, this option is offered in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Mississauga, Markham, Ottawa, and Montreal - with the residency portions at Queen's campus in Kingston.  Kingston is ~2.5 hours from Toronto.

Employment Summary

6-Month Placement Rate: 94%
Average Salary: $82,465
Average Salary Increase: N/A

Queen's only lists their 6-month placement rate, which at 94% is quite good.  The average salary of ~$82,500 is also good, although slightly below the level's of other high-priced Canadian programs.  54% of graduates end up in either Consulting or Financial Services roles, which are the two most common areas of MBA graduates.  Queen's places a majority of their graduates in Toronto, with other Canadian placement locations including Calgary, Ottawa, Ft. McMurray and Vancouver.


As far as one-year MBA programs in Canada go, Queen's is one of the schools with the strongest reputation.  For those interested in Finance or Consulting, and with relevant experience, you'd do very well with the full-time program at Queen's.  Although, as it is a one-year program and 2.5 hours away from Toronto, things could get very hectic balancing school work and recruiting/networking trips away from Kingston.  For the Accelerated MBA, this is a good option for anyone looking to continue to work full-time and who already holds a Bachelors degree in Business.  However, depending on where you live, you may have a very small cohort to complete the program with and may not have the ability to grow a professional network that will help you out locally.
