Application Process

    • Application Review

      Once we have received all application components the application review process begins. Applications are reviewed for interview consideration.

      It is not necessary to contact Ivey to confirm receipt of application components. Applicants will be contacted if any information or components of their application are missing.

    • Admission Interviews

      Within approximately two weeks of receiving all application components, a candidate may receive an invitation to interview.

      • Ivey conducts interviews by invitation only.
      • All candidates admitted to the Ivey MBA are interviewed at least once.
      • Chosen candidates receive further detail regarding expectations and preparation tips within the interview invitation.
    • Offers, Scholarships, and Awards

      Admissions decisions will be communicated no later than the dates outlined below:

      After Round 5 on November 12, we will no longer be accepting applications for our March 2019 intake from any international candidate that will require a study VISA, and we encourage those candidates to plan to apply for the following year. If you are an international candidate, we urge you to submit as soon as possible to allow sufficient time for student visa processing. We process applications on a rolling basis, and both admissions and scholarship decisions are handed out between application deadlines.
