Introducing Dean Robert Kennedy: A conversation with the Dean
He takes the helm at a high point in Ivey’s history, bringing with him an impressive array of experience and expertise. So what has our new Dean learned in his first 100 days on the job, and where will he take things next?

Going Public
Some people see it as going over to the Dark Side, but many alumni have put their Ivey experience to work in government at the municipal, provincial or national level. They embrace the challenge and complexity, and value the opportunity to have an impact.

Redefining Retirement
A lot of Ivey grads are uncomfortable with the “R” word. After spending their careers working and playing hard, they are tackling the next chapter with gusto.
