Recognized for excellence both in Canada and worldwide, Ivey is uniquely defined by its outstanding track record for developing leaders and accelerating career success. Ivey has more C-level executives among its graduates than any other Canadian business school, with two in five alums holding senior management positions in his or her organization.
This success stems, in part, from Iveys state-of-the-art curriculum, which is designed to prepare grads for career success. With the input of top recruiters, business leaders, and alumni we are constantly innovating the program to ensure that our students will be able to meet the needs and challenges of todays business world. In addition to providing a solid foundation of business knowledge, Ivey goes one step further to develop and hone leadership abilities through delivery of our Five Leadership Essentials. Every day, students will learn how to embrace complexity, manage volume, maximize team potential, communicate persuasively, and achieve decisiveness through uncertainty.
In order to prepare grads for the real world of business, Ivey uses the interactive case-method approach to immerse students in an action-oriented learning environment. Using real-world cases and real business issues, students become the decision-makers - asked to analyze the data, develop alternatives, make and defend recommendations, and experience the outcomes. Students practice business in a risk-free environment, taking part in lively discussions and learning from the contributions of their classmates.
The Ivey case method also incorporates our Cross-Enterprise Leadership (CEL) approach, which prepares leaders to see the bigger picture and to lead initiatives that enhance the whole enterprise - across every functional area and industry. Given that the average young professional will rotate through a number of different industries and job functions in his or her lifetime, having this cross-enterprise perspective gives students the confidence and expertise to make sure they achieve career success in any role.
From day one of the program, students also have the support of our qualified Career Management staff who act as a board of advisors providing coaching and access to the resources and tools our grads need to be successful throughout their careers. One of these resources is the prestigious alumni network that is 20,000 strong in over 95 countries. Students will learn the skills they need to leverage their connections in this network in order to build and sustain strong relationships. Ivey alumni can be a source of job opportunities, but they also provide mentoring opportunities, advice, and support.
