Prepare for Long-Term Career Success

Career Management is a central part of the Ivey MBA and is integrated throughout the program. Classroom activities are combined with innovative experiences like our alumni networking event, Get Connected. Our Career Advisors partner with you from day one through to graduation.

From the Beginning

Your interactions with the Career Management team start before you are even accepted into the Ivey MBA Program. Career Management plays a critical role in our admissions process, interviewing candidates to ensure that their career goals and expectations are defined, realistic, and achievable. Your admissions interview is the starting point of your relationship with our Career Advisors, which will last throughout your time at Ivey.

Integrated Curriculum

Tactical Career Management begins as soon as you join the program in July. Our CM team will work with you on everything from understanding market expectations and preparing a compelling resumé and cover letter, to networking tips and interview coaching.

Get Conn-X: Ivey’s Virtual Get Connected Networking Event

As an MBA Direct, you get to take advantage of the three-day virtual event, where students will experience firsthand the realities of networking in 2021.  

In virtual mode, they will have increased access to engage with employers from diverse industries and geographic locations through information sessions, networking events, and one-on-one coffee chats. With these activities, students will have the opportunity to hone the skills developed through their Career Management curriculum, start to build key relationships with alumni and recruiters, and further refine their post-MBA career strategy.

Students can expect to walk away from the three days feeling confident, focused, and better prepared to successfully navigate the virtual recruiting season.

Reach Your Goals

The Get Connected event marks the end of formal Career Management curriculum and the beginning of your individual coaching relationship with your Career Advisor. As you identify job opportunities and connect with Alumni, you may choose to work with your Career Advisor to help develop and refine your career strategy and navigate the networking and job offer process.
