Where the World Becomes Your Classroom
Ivey recognizes that the world of business today is a global one. For this reason we include international business issues and opportunities for learning into our curriculum. In addition to a variety of global case discussions, world class faculty, and a diverse classroom environment, as an Ivey MBA you'll also get the opportunity to extend your learning outside of the classroom.
Ivey's Global Learning Opportunities include an optional trip to China, South East Asia (Singapore, India, Thailand), or South America as part of the elective cycle and volunteer opportunities to teach and provide business consulting in India, Eastern Europe, or China. You’ll get hands-on experience in an international setting, preparing you for success wherever you choose to work.
International Curriculum Options
International Study Trip:
These trips are designed to complement the classroom activities of the Ivey MBA Program with on-the-ground exposure to some of the world’s most dynamic and exciting economic regions. You will have the option of participating in an international study trip to China, South East Asia (Singapore, India, Thailand), or South America for elective credit. During your time in one of these countries, you’ll visit local businesses, make connections with business leaders (including successful Ivey alumni), join in 'cultural plunge' team activities, and learn how businesses operate successfully in these economic climates.
Exchange Abroad Opportunity
Students have the option to participate in an international exchange that will take place it the final semester (January to April). This is an exciting opportunity to immerse yourself fully in another culture and to expand your global network.
