We are looking for tomorrow’s leaders

At Ivey, we work hard to ensure that applications are reviewed and processed with care, due diligence, and efficiency. Here, you’ll find all the information you need to begin the application process.

We're looking for people with exceptional talent and ambition to succeed in areas they are passionate about.

Rolling Admissions

Please keep in mind that we process applications on a rolling basis, and both admissions and scholarship decisions are handed out between application deadlines. You do not need to wait for a deadline to apply.

Admissions decisions are typically communicated within 4-6 weeks from the date of application submission. In situations of high volume, this can take up to 8 weeks. We encourage applicants to contact us if this timeline impacts decisions from other programs, so we can do our best to work within these competing timelines.


We know the situation of COVID-19 is impacting many of our applicants, so we continue to be accommodating and flexible with our admissions process and deadlines. We are here to help! Please contact us at if you have concerns about test requirements or submission timelines.

Frequently Asked Questions

Candidates who have slightly less than two years of full-time work experience when they begin the program will not be excluded from consideration in the application process. We encourage applicants to think critically about when is the right time for them to pursue an MBA; when they will be able to both contribute to, and get the most out of the Ivey MBA learning experience.
