Question Description
I am a regular student and have just completed my Bachelor's Level Studies in Business Administration. Now, I want to pursue my further education in Master's of Business Administration. But I do not have work experience. Can I do MBA without work experience? Please provide me the list of universities that accepts international students for MBA without work experience?

The straight answer to your question would be "yes". Regular students without any prior work experience can apply and get admitted for MBA degree in many universities and colleges around the world. However, in highly ranked reputed business schools and colleges in developed countries like USA, UK, Australia, Canada, France, Spain, Switzerland, New Zealand, etc, MBA is taken as post-experience degree and especially designed for highly professional people with enough work experiences. There are some high ranked reputed business schools and colleges which accept students even without prior work experience but such students must have excellent academic and GMAT scores.

MBA programs offered without work experience in developed countries are generally known as low profiled MBA. Value of such MBA is very low. Universities, Colleges and Business Schools in developed countries take MBA without work experience as the money making machine as they charge very high amount to student to sell their MBA programs. But, after spending enough time and money in such MBA programs, MBA graduates may not be placed for jobs in those countries. So, my suggestion to regular students without work experience who are trying to pursue their further education abroad in developed countries is - not to choose business schools that offer MBA without work experience and not to get such type of MBA degrees. It is better for you to choose either degrees like MSc in Management which do not require job experience and offers almost the same subject matters that are offered in MBA or you can study in business schools and colleges in your own country where the MBA degree is offered without work experience. This way you can at least save your money.

Dear friend, everyone desire to pursue one's dream, but one should always remember dreams should be pursued in a correct way so that the dream could never come down crumbling apart in the near future. So, I would like to suggest that you should try to do the MBA in the same way as others do. However, I've found some MBA programs offered by some business schools which may not require work experience. Following are those MBA programs:

Dalhousie University MBA (corporate residency)
McMaster University MBA (co-op)
Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo MBA (co-op)
University of Carlton MBA (internship)
University of Victoria MBA
