Important Updates to the 2020 MBA Direct for HBA Graduates Program

Given the ongoing physical distancing measures, the MBA Direct Program will move to a condensed, virtual format for the months of July and August. 

Schedule and Format

For July and August, classes will take place Friday and Saturday, from approximately 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. (with a lunch break between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.). This condensed schedule and virtual format will allow students to continue working during July and August. Moving to London can also be delayed until the elective period begins in September 2020. Moving support is offered for those who would like assistance with the transition.

Curriculum

The curriculum content remains unchanged; however, structure and timing will be modified. Western has canceled any future university-sanctioned international travel for all students until December 31, 2020. Due to these changes, we have changed the timing of the International Study Trip elective courses, to offer in March 2021 (instead of December 2020) should travel be safe and there are no restrictions at this time. If travel is permitted, the academic exchange will remain available.

Start Date

Friday, July 10th

Scholarships

Remain available, ranging $5,000 to $20,000

Career Resources

Virtual appointments with your Career Advisor are in place along with other resources to improve your narrative, interviewing skills and develop your career strategy. Corporate partners remain committed to recruiting talent at Ivey to adjusting to virtual means for the time being.

Admissions Timing

Application deadline is May 19th (with some grace time around it). Application submitted to offer decision is approximately a few weeks.
