Rapid change – or better yet, DISRUPTION – is affecting the business environment, and therefore the way Ivey must operate, as well as the topics we must explore in our research and teach in our programs. As we look ahead to what Ivey will be in five, 10 or 20 years, I am drawing on the experience and insights of alumni, staff and faculty to ensure that we are on the right strategic path. The support of all of our stakeholders and our shared commitment to Ivey’s success is a competitive advantage that will continue to build our momentum.
I look forward to where it will lead.
Dean, Ivey Business School

Like many of our peers, we have transitioned to an online Donor Roll as part of our approach to environmental sustainability and cost reduction. Our new Online Donor Roll recognizes the generosity of alumni and friends who have given to Ivey between January 1, 2015 and April 30, 2016. Learn more about its unique features, including the recognition of donor loyalty, giving societies and lifetime commitments of $25,000 or more.
