Application Policies


Applicants who have been denied admission to the Ivey MBA Program must wait approximately one year before re-applying. Re-applicants should focus on how they have improved their application. Re-applicants do not have a relative advantage, or disadvantage, compared with other candidates.


Students on the waitlist will be contacted if we obtain a vacancy in the Program prior to the start of classes. Students on the waitlist are not guaranteed a spot in the Program and may be required to re-apply.

Deferral Requests

Deferrals are granted very rarely and on an individual basis. If you wish to discuss a deferral, please contact your Associate Director.
