Train to be a Business Analyst

At SBA Canada, we’ve reimagined business school for people the real world.

In some ways, the leverage model in a professional service firm resembles the standard markup function in an automotive repair business. There is a significant difference, however. Professional service firms – like our BIG 4 audit firms and the largest management consulting firms: Think McKinsey – the Boston Consulting Group – Bain & Company – Accenture – Deloitte – E&Y – PwC – and KPMG – use a markup of at least 7 times the wage cost – and often 10 times or more. This compares with standard markups of about two and a half to three times in most automotive repair shops. But leverage only works in large firms. The most profitable small accounting firms have virtually no staff.

Virtual Faculty

For each course, we employ very distinguished virtual faculty.

We can’t afford to pay them.

But our students do buy their books. All required texts are available as either e-books or audiobooks. Students can buy books in their choice of format. In that way, part of the proceeds eventually finds its way to the authors.

Entrepreneurial Advisors

Many business schools like to brag that they have an entrepreneur in residence. We don’t bother. They’re all over the web anyway. We seek them out and listen to what they have to say. If what they say makes sense, we just steal their ideas.
