Create and Navigate Your Career Success
The MBA program you choose should share your career goals. Our mandate at Ivey has never been just to prepare you for your first post-MBA job and be done with it. Rather, we want to give you the tools to create and navigate opportunities successfully throughout your career.
Our Ivey Career Management team is ranked #1 in Canada by our prestigious recruiting partners and they’re involved from the very beginning. In fact, your early career path exploration starts during the admission process when our career management team participates in your application assessment.
Integrated Career Management
Career coaching is built right into the curriculum. Class time is devoted to the skills required to build a solid résumé, prepare for rigorous interviews, find hidden career opportunities, network effectively, and plan your career strategy.
We don’t hand out jobs. We provide access to exceptional coaching and knowledge you can use to launch and accelerate your career path. These days, the typical career of a young professional spans three radically different industries with eight distinct functions – your career success will depend on your ability to manage this change.
An Ivey MBA opens doors to an unlimited range of challenging leadership opportunities. Ivey Career Management coaching gives you the insight and career savvy you need to fully capitalize on them.
