About Ivey

Celebrating 90 years of leadership, the Ivey Business School is widely considered the top business school in Canada and among the best in the world. Ivey’s Honors Business Administration Program gives students the unmatched combination of academic excellence and outstanding opportunity. Ivey students are well-rounded individuals, with strong extracurricular involvement, proven leadership skills and outstanding achievements.

What is the “Case” Method of Learning?

In the case method which Ivey uses for teaching, students are given a case describing a real-world situation in which some type of business problem is being faced. Based on the information provided to them, students must decide what they would do if they were faced with the situation, and what their action plan would be to implement the solution.

Inside the classroom, reviewing a case involves a lot of participation from students. There are no clear-cut answers to cases, so there is thorough discussion of all factors that should be considered in making a decision.

How does the case competition work?

Please note, for the 2021 events, we will be running Virtual Case Classes for High School students living within Canada. There will be Virtual Case Classes running for the following regions between the months of February 2021 to April 2021:

London/Greater Toronto Area #1

London/Greater Toronto Area #2

Ottawa/Quebec/Maritime Provinces

Manitoba/Saskatchewan

Alberta #1

Alberta #2

British Columbia #1

British Columbia #2

Dates and student registration for these sessions will launch in December 2020 on our Ivey HBA events page.

Please note, the Virtual Case Classes are geared towards students in grade 11. 

Who are we looking for?

Students at Ivey come from many different academic fields of study – prior business knowledge is NOT a requirement! We are looking for motivated individuals who are interested in exploring business. Registrants should be high achievers, team players, and involved in extracurricular activities.
