Making It Possible

Making -it -possible -01Our faculty members stay immersed in the business world through their own consulting, research and personal business activities. Based on this real-world experience and knowledge, they'll facilitate your class discussions and ensure all angles of a business case are probed. Outside of class, they'll be available to coach you through challenges and provide additional support as you improve your leadership skills.

Enhancing Your Career Development

Career development is one of the most common goals shared by EMBA participants. To this end, Ivey has developed a comprehensive program including workshops, seminars, and one-on-one coaching. These services are based on the four key principles of career development:

  1. Self-assessment to understand your unique value proposition and build your brand.
  2. Research and targeting to identify opportunities that match your ideal work preferences.
  3. Creating a career management strategy to market yourself internally and/or externally.
  4. Executing a realistic career plan based on networking and effective search techniques.

Involving Your Partner In A Meaningful Way

If you have a partner, they'll likely play a meaningful role in supporting you, which is why Ivey offers a special Partners' Orientation Program designed to connect your partner to your EMBA experience as soon as the program begins.
