Ivey’s One-Year MBA Program
Ivey’s full-time MBA program is one year in length and begins each March with two sections of students.
Our one-year format recognizes that part of the big cost of doing your MBA is time away from the workforce. With only one year out of the workforce instead of two, we’ve minimized your opportunity cost while providing a world-class package of intense curriculum that will help you to achieve your career goals and get you back into the workforce quickly.
Full-Time Master of Business Administration
Our program is not simply a set of courses, but an action-oriented learning experience designed to accelerate your success in the real world. You’ll learn everything you’d learn from a lecture and more: you’ll be the decision-maker, asked to analyze the data, develop alternatives, make and defend your recommendations.
Case Study Method
The Ivey MBA curriculum is delivered using Ivey’s case study method. While other schools may employ cases in their teaching methodology, Ivey is the only case-based program in Canada. Employing the use of over 300 cases a year, we use an action-oriented and dynamic approach that mirrors the challenges and complexities of real-world business.
Ivey faculty use cases and work together to expand your perspective on the way issues impact an entire organization, using cross-teaching and an integrated approach to curriculum planning.
Global Learning Opportunities
Ivey recognizes that the world of business today is a global one. For this reason we include international business issues and opportunities for learning into our curriculum. In addition to a variety of global case discussions, world class faculty, and a diverse classroom environment, as an Ivey MBA you’ll also get the opportunity to extend your learning outside of the classroom.
International Study Trip
These trips are designed to complement the classroom activities of the Ivey MBA Program with on-the-ground exposure to some of the world’s most dynamic and exciting economic regions. You will have the option of participating in an international study trip to China or South America for elective credit. During your time in one of these countries, you’ll visit local businesses, make connections with business leaders (including successful Ivey alumni), join in ‘cultural plunge’ team activities, and learn how businesses operate successfully in these economic climates.
Exchange Abroad Opportunity
Students have the option to participate in an international exchange that will take place in the final semester (January to April). This is an exciting opportunity to immerse yourself fully in another culture and to expand your global network.
