The average number of students per MBA class in Canada is 41-60 students ranging from a low of about 5 to a high of approximately 240. In general, perhaps not surprisingly, the larger schools possess the greater concentration, on average, of students per class. For example, Queen's University, University of Toronto, and University of Western Ontario, which are among the traditional elite business schools in Canada, average 64-114 students per class, ranging from a low of 60 to a high of 240. However, there is no conclusive answer as to what accounts for a school's size. Some, for instance, may argue that more students are drawn to schools that they believe, rightly or not, offer more opportunities, both academically and career-wise, and/or have a tradition of or reputation for high quality, if not the best, education.
