The Ivey MBA Student Community

A Shared Experience You’ll Never Forget

Life at Ivey will be nothing less than one of the best years of your life. The close-knit campus environment gives you the unique opportunity to form stronger ties with fellow classmates because you enjoy everything that the Ivey MBA experience has to offer – together. The shared experience you will have at Ivey forms a lifetime of personal and professional connections that will be integral to your future career success.

Diverse Classmates

Our admissions team works hard to ensure that your Ivey classmates will be some of the best and brightest students anywhere in the world. You’ll build friendships that will not only enrich your Ivey experience, but become lifelong bonds.

Getting Involved

If there’s one thing our Ivey MBA students will attest to, it’s that the Ivey experience is what you make of it. There is no shortage of opportunities to get involved in everything from student government and sports, to case competitions and social events.

As an Ivey MBA you will have the opportunity to take on leadership challenges, step outside your comfort zone and build your confidence – putting your skills and leadership abilities into practice inside and outside the classroom, every day.

The Ivey MBA Association (MBAA)

The Ivey MBA Association is a student-run organization that strives to deliver a rich community life for all Ivey MBA students. The MBAA mission is to empower students to maximize their collective Ivey experience.

The MBAA provides opportunities for leadership and volunteerism. The Executive (Student Council) is responsible for governing all student clubs and sports teams, and other student-driven initiatives.

How Can I Get Involved?

There are over 30 active clubs and teams at Ivey, each with its own membership and leadership opportunities. Additionally, the MBAA is made up of approximately 50 Senators, Representatives and Executive members who promote the interests of all MBA students across a variety of areas.

If your interest is volunteerism, then consider participating in one of our volunteer initiatives like the LEADER Project. All MBA students participate in Community Action Day - an opportunity to fulfill Ivey’s mission statement of giving back to the communities in which they operate.

If there isn’t a club or team already devoted to one of your interests, then you’re encouraged to create it!

A Day In The Life

No day is ‘typical’ at Ivey. From the cases you’ll study, to 24hr reports and club meetings, social events and student government – Ivey MBAs are always keeping busy. Find out from our past MBA students what you can expect:


Partners and Families

As an Ivey MBA student, you become part of the Ivey community – and your spouses and partners become part of that community as well. The Ivey Circle group provides support and companionship to partners, spouses and families of Ivey MBA students.

The Ivey MBA is an intense one-year experience, not only for our students, but for the people who support them. 

Over 20% of our students have partners and families. This makes for a large, vibrant group as diverse as the student make-up of the class itself. Due to the shared experiences, partners find friendship with other partners who are facing similar challenges, but also sharing in the excitement of this new phase of their lives. London is also an exceptionally family-friendly place to live. 

Our Facilities

The Ivey MBA Program takes place in a brand new facility located just across the street from the main campus of Western University. This state-of-the-art facility was built to support Ivey's dynamic learning environment and unique community experience.
