Welcome to HBA2!

Emily Royer, HBA '11, MBA '20, at the 2019 HBA2 Welcome Back event

This past summer, HBA2 students were hard at work building professional relationships and developing fundamental skills for their careers.

Employed by companies across North America, and around the world, many students held positions in consulting, accounting, and finance – while others explored a variety of industries.

HBA2 students began their second year of classes this week with a Welcome Back event on September 3. The event started with a welcome speech by Dean Sharon Hodgson, who gave them words of encouragement as they enter their final year. Emily Royer, HBA '11, MBA '20, reflected on her final year in the HBA Program, and offered students advice as they prepare for recruitment.

The event concluded with an awards ceremony and an overview from Ivey’s Career Management team on what the upcoming recruiting season might bring.

Here are a few stats about this year's HBA2 students:

484 – HBA2 students

285 – combined-degree students

250 – the number of companies they worked at this summer

We'd also like to congratulate the following award recipients:

  • Erica Yarmol-Matusiak – Alexandra "Sandy" Hurst Memorial HBA Award
  • Carmine Vescio – Stephen Cuddy Memorial Award
  • Harrison Hart – HBA '94 McCleary Memorial Award
  • Emma Juskovic and Margot Ghersin – Shelagh Donovan Memorial HBA Award

Congratulations to all the HBA2 section award recipients and the Dean's Honour List recipients.
