Your network is a top benefit of business school

Business school grads know a strong network of colleagues is invaluable. And Ivey’s alumni network is chock-full of impressive people.

52 per cent of Ivey alumni hold the title of Chair, President, C-Suite, Vice-President, Managing Director, or Partner. Despite their busy lives, alumni always find time to reconnect, whether it’s at events like Global Ivey Day and Homecoming, or by coming back to the School to speak to students or judge case competitions. 

Ivey alum Michael Bernstein, MBA '96, Chair of the Ivey Alumni Network Board, says the opportunity to be surrounded by a network of MBAs is one of the best parts of a business school education.

“[A network is] hard to quantify, by its very nature, but it's real, with substantial benefits," he says.

Bernstein, along with other Ivey alumni, outline the benefits of Ivey’s strong network in The Globe and Mail.
