Tuition Fees and Schedule

The Ivey HBA program is a 2 + 2 program. You spend your first two years in any program or faculty and typically join the Ivey HBA Program in your third year. Keep this in mind as you compare the costs of the Ivey HBA Program to other undergraduate business programs. It is important to consider the overall (usually 4 year) cost of the programs.

Ancillary Fees

There are additional ancillary fees of approximately $1,700 per year for Domestic and $2,500 per year for International.

Ancillary fees are mandatory course or program fees that are charged in addition to tuition, and are used to fund a number of student benefits like your bus pass, health plan, and more. See the Register's website for a list of what ancillary fees include.

Computers and Course Materials

You will need to purchase a notebook computer before the start of HBA1 classes. If you need help on the details and specifications of different models, please contact the Ivey IT Centre.

You will also need course materials, which are now in digital format for the Ivey HBA Program.  For HBA1, these costs are approximately $1500.00 plus any additional course textbook requirements. For HBA2 core and electives, costs are $600 for a full time HBA2 student and $300 per year for dual degree students. Any textbook requirements will also be at an additional cost. Course material fees will be added with the first installment of tuition, due in August. Please note, courses with travel experience components will have additional fees.
