You Learn With, and From, The Best
We hold our faculty to the same high standards. The Ivey faculty has a strong connection to the school and fully embraces our unique teaching method. Experts in their fields, Ivey faculty members write cases, consult and research with organizations around the world, and then draw on this experience in the classroom. They are deeply committed to your academic success and your leadership development.
With a better approach to learning and amazing classmates and faculty, there's really no limit to what you can learn
From Manager To Leader
Anybody can learn a theory. All schools teach core business knowledge but that’s where the similarity ends. At Ivey, we believe knowledge is necessary, but not sufficient for career success. Pushing you to learn how and when to apply ideas is the difference that will take you from manager to leader.
Leadership Takes Practice
Strong leaders are confident leaders. This confidence only comes with practice, practice, and more practice. The Ivey classroom is where you will test your ability to apply what you’ve learned and have your perspective challenged by your learning team, classmates, and faculty. Through hundreds of cases and simulations, you’re exposed to several years of real-life business knowledge in just one transformative year.
At Ivey, you learn by doing. Each day, as you apply your learning, you accelerate your leadership capabilities. We call these capabilities Ivey Leadership Essentials. They are at the core of everything we do at Ivey and are what truly differentiate our Ivey MBAs.
Who Came Before You
Grow your network and learn the art of leveraging those influential connections.
Grow Your Network
As an HBA grad, you know the power and influence of the prestigious Ivey Alumni Network. It's a bond that lasts a lifetime.
As an Ivey MBA, you will have a chance to broaden that network again by making connections with classmates, recruiters, guest speakers, sponsors and mentors.
A Culture of Support
Ivey does more than just connect you to influential people. You’ll also learn the art of effectively leveraging those connections. Developing new relationships and building on the ones you have is a core skill that’s vital to your career.
Ivey graduates have a culture of saying yes to meeting with other Ivey grads to talk business or mutual opportunities. This culture is fostered from day one and continues well beyond graduation. Ivey grads understand each other, and they know that you chose Ivey because you value what makes it different from traditional business schools. That shared connection says a lot about who you are today and who you will become.
Where You'll Go
Building your skills today for limitless opportunities tomorrow.
Create and Navigate Your Career Success
The MBA program you choose should share your career goals. Our mandate at Ivey has never been just to prepare you for your first post-MBA job and be done with it. Rather, we want to give you the tools to create and navigate opportunities successfully throughout your career.
