39 Country Initiative

39 Country Initiative is housed in the International Business Institute at the Ivey Business School. The initiative supports the world’s poorest 39 countries, as defined by a per capita income of less than $2,000 USD annually. It leverages Ivey Publishing’s vast collection of cases and teaching materials and has built a global network of schools supporting its key activities.


LEADER Project

LEADER is a student-driven overseas economic development program.  It was founded in 1991 by MBA students from the Ivey Business School with the mandate of empowering promising entrepreneurs in frontier markets to envision, launch, and/or scale new ventures.  Through this approach LEADER aims to enable high-potential individuals to develop local business solutions that create opportunities for their communities.


Ubuntu Management Education Initiative

Ivey's Ubuntu Management Education Initiative sends HBA students to African universities to demonstrate case teaching right in the classroom.  Since 2012, 100 Ivey students have traveled to Africa to teach, and over 1,800 African students have earned Certificates of Completion from the program.
