Tuition Payment Process

There are no application or assessment fees when you apply for the Executive MBA Program, however, once you've been accepted, we require a $2,000 CDN deposit. Your Ivey Executive MBA tuition is payable in three or more installments throughout the program.

Corporate Sponsorship

Your employer may recognize that sponsoring your tuition is an excellent investment in the strength of their organization. They may also be eligible to claim your tuition as a tax deduction. To learn more, contact Canada Customs and Revenue Agency.

If you require assistance demonstrating the value of sponsoring your tuition, we would be pleased to provide a business case template as a starting point to help you communicate the benefits to your employer. Please contact our office for guidance and support in presenting your case for sponsorship.
