Applicants to the Executive MBA program at Ivey must first submit their resume by email for review.
Within two days, they will review their skills and credentials and contact them to confirm eligibility. After review, the applicant will be advised if they need to complete the GMAT. Applicants get access to an admissions counselor once they start their application, and this counselor is available to answer any questions they might have throughout the process.
Along with the online application form, applicants must also submit answers to three self-evaluation questions; two reference evaluations forms–one from a peer and one from a supervisor; a letter of endorsement from their employer; two copies of their official post-secondary transcripts; and, if required, their GMAT and TOEFL scores. Applicants are not required to have an undergraduate or graduate degree, however, most have an undergraduate degree.
Applications are processed on a rolling basis, and both admissions and scholarship decisions are handed out between application deadlines.
You do not need to wait for a deadline to apply.
The first stage of the admissions process is being considered for an interview, and the invitation is sent out with a week of a completed application. Admissions decisions are typically communicated within 2-3 weeks after the interview takes place. We encourage applicants to contact us if this timeline impacts decisions from other programs, so we can do our best to work within these competing timelines.
