I am currently trolling through the websites of Toronto universities looking for a good post-graduate program. It's tough when you are a Computer Science graduate. I don't want to program codes or research vague theories forever. However most of the Canadian Masters education in Computer Sciences is based on Graph theories and researches. I find a dearth of options when it comes to IT management and planning. It has to be in Toronto as I don't want to move and give up work.
I talked with one professor recently and asked him about the lack of good post-graduate options in Canada. His answer? Canada poaches off educated personnel from around the world, so we don't need to develop our own. That may be true, but most of those entering Canada eventually leave for the US as they cannot develop their skills here. And with outsourcing as it is, coding and researching may eventually shift to India and China, leaving the Western world's computer scientists in a state of despair.
The kicker? I checked out one universities requirement for an EMBA program. One of the admission requirements was $70,000. Per year.
