Ivey’s One-Year MBA Program

Full-Time Master in Business Administration

Ivey’s full-time MBA program is one year in length and begins each March with two sections of students. The Ivey MBA is a transformational experience for ambitious leaders who want to:

  • Hone their skill-set
  • Develop their leadership abilities
  • Accelerate their career success

Our program is not simply a set of courses, but an action-oriented learning experience designed to accelerate your success in the real world. You’ll learn everything you’d learn from a lecture and more: you’ll be the decision-maker, asked to analyze the data, develop alternatives, make and defend your recommendations.

Build Your Success

Programming starts with the business essentials – the core fundamentals that every leader needs. Within each course, you get the learning you need at the appropriate time and professors deliver content as it is relevant - gradually increasing complexity to develop understanding. Integrated into the curriculum are:

These give you the opportunity to apply your skills in a real business environment.

Case Study Method

The Ivey MBA curriculum is delivered using Ivey’s case study method. While other schools may employ cases in their teaching methodology, Ivey is the only case-based program in Canada. Employing the use of over 300 cases a year, we use an action-oriented and dynamic approach that mirrors the challenges and complexities of real-world business.

Ivey faculty use cases and work together to expand your perspective on the way issues impact an entire organization, using cross-teaching and an integrated approach to curriculum planning.
