Every candidate accepted into the Accelerated MBA and full-time MBA program has completed an admissions interview. The following documentation is also required:
- Two reference letters
- Online Application (Includes two required essays)
- Application fee ($150 CAD)
You will be contacted for an admissions interview once all application components have been received and reviewed.
Accelerated MBA Program Curriculum
The Accelerated MBA curriculum is designed to build on the core knowledge you already obtained during your HBA years at Ivey, and bring you up to the MBA level.
Tuition and Financing
All applicants are considered for scholarships and awards, including Forté Fellow awards. Scholarships range from $5,000 to approximately half-tuition.
*The GMAT is not required for HBA graduates with a 78%+ average over HBA 1 and HBA 2 combined. For students who did not graduate with a 78%+ average, the GMAT may be required for admission. Please get in touch with us for more information.
**Ivey's Admissions office will contact UWO directly to obtain transcripts so you are not required to order them.
