What We Look For

The success of each class depends on the quality of our candidates. That’s why we assess every applicant within a holistic framework that seeks to understand all aspects of their character, qualifications, and experiences. Find out if you have what we’re looking for!

How To Apply

Fit is everything at Ivey. Our finely tuned admission process ensures we accept the right candidates for the MBA program.

Application Deadlines

Our program begins each year in March. 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 and decisions are made within 4-6 weeks. Offer and/or scholarship decision likelihood is the same across all our recruiting rounds. This means, that applying in the earlier round does not mean there is a higher chance of offer and scholarship. Similarly, applying in the last round does not mean there is less likelihood of an offer and scholarship.

Frequently Asked Questions

Candidates who have slightly less than two years of quality, 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 the right time is 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. We also encourage applicants to keep in mind that the average work experience of successful applications is five years, and meeting the minimum requirement is not sufficient for admission.
