What an amazing Day | Global Ivey Day celebrated around the world

Alumni get together at a Toronto Global Ivey Day event.

From first time events in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Zurich, Switzerland to annual celebrations in Toronto and Shanghai, Global Ivey Day reached around the globe to bring alumni together to celebrate their Ivey experience.

Created in 2010 as an opportunity for Ivey alumni to put time aside from their busy and demanding schedules to celebrate their Ivey experience, Global Ivey Day has grown into a truly worldwide event:

  • Final number of cities where events took place – 40
  • Total number of events – 65
  • Total number of alumni – 2,396
  • Total number of students – 912

Mark your calendars for next year’s event – Nov. 17, 2016
