Year in Review

Celebrating 100 Years of Leadership.

As the School celebrates its Centennial we’ve challenged ourselves to look forward to the next 100 years of business leadership. With thousands of Ivey staff, faculty, alumni and students coming together at dozens of celebratory events – it was a banner year for the School. 

Whether it was accepting a historic 30-million dollar gift from the generous Donald K. Johnson, making momentous progress on our strategic plan, or advancing research on our critical issues, it was a year to move forward.

Here’s a glance at our impact in 2023.

Our HBA Program attracts the best and brightest students who bring diverse academic and leadership experiences to the program.
