MBA 2020

The MBA Class of 2020 is wrapping up its first week of the Program, and what a week it's been for this history-making group.

The week included instructions on how to learn with cases, a London Knights hockey game, a leadership day, and their first MBA classes.

The largest class in the history of the one-year MBA Program at Ivey includes 154 extraordinary students, all armed with unique experiences, impressive resumes, and unparalleled leadership skills. The students come from 34 birth countries around the world, and 30 different industries. More than half the class holds an undergraduate degree in something other than business.

Diversity is a crucial aspect of the Ivey classroom, with many students saying they’re looking forward to learning from their peers from different backgrounds and industries.
