Prepare for Long-Term Career Success

Ivey has one of the largest and most qualified Career Management (CM) departments in North America. The Career Management team’s mandate is to provide you with the tools and resources needed to navigate your career path well into the future.

Although it is up to you to land the post-MBA job, the integrated curriculum and expertise that you will receive from Ivey’s CM team are unmatched. Our consistently strong graduate employment rates and the success of our alumni, with 2 in 5 holding positions of Director-level or higher in his or her organization, are a true testament to the talent and resources of our Career Management team.

From the Beginning

Your interactions with the Career Management team start before you are even accepted into the Ivey MBA Program. Career Management plays a critical role in our admissions process, interviewing candidates to ensure that their career goals and expectations are defined, realistic, and achievable. Your admissions interview is the starting point of your relationship with our Career Advisors, which will last throughout your time at Ivey.

Integrated Curriculum

As a critical component of core curriculum, Tactical Career Management courses are built directly into Module 1 of programming. Tactical Career Management begins in your first week in the program and runs approximately twelve weeks. Our CM team will work with you on everything from understanding market expectations and preparing a compelling resumé and cover letter, to networking tips and interview coaching.

Career Management’s Get Connected Series of Events

Get Connected with Alumni

Following the completion of core career programming, this two-day capstone event in Toronto will give all students the opportunity to test the skills they’ve developed and explore opportunities through exclusively alumni focused activities. They will participate in alumni industry panels that mirror the interests of their class, engage in practice interviews, and connect with alumni through coffee chats and networking events.

Get Connected Industry Treks

Get Connected Industry Treks signal the beginning of the MBA recruitment season. Students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in full-day industry specific networking activities, including information sessions, company tours, and coffee chats. These events are planned to align with industry recruiting timelines and complement ongoing virtual and in-person engagement opportunities.

Reach Your Goals

The Get Connected event marks the end of formal Career Management curriculum and the beginning of your individual coaching relationship with your Career Advisor. As you identify job opportunities and connect with Alumni, you may choose to work with your Career Advisor to help develop and refine your career strategy and navigate the networking and job offer process.
