Ivey Accelerated MBA Application Requirements

Before you begin - application requirements

At Ivey, we look for well-rounded leaders who bring unique perspectives to the classroom. Our holistic assessment framework seeks to understand all aspects of a candidate’s character, qualifications, and experiences.

Mandatory requirements:

  • Completed business undergraduate degree with the following course work: Accounting, Finance, Economics, Statistics, Marketing, Organizational Behaviour, Operations, Strategy;
  • Two to ten years of full-time work experience - This ensures that you and your classmates will have experiences that equally contribute to team and class discussions, along with the context and maturity to apply this learning in a professional setting; and,
  • Demonstrated leadership potential - From career success and promotion, to volunteer work and community initiatives, or other interests like athletics or the arts – we are looking for candidates who have demonstrated strong leadership orientation in previous experience, and can bring that into the Ivey classroom.

GMAT scores not required*

At Ivey, we look beyond GMAT scores to the experiences, perspectives and insights you can bring to the classroom. However, in some cases, a GMAT may be recommended to strengthen your application.

*A GMAT exemption is determined once you submit your online application form and academic transcripts.
