5 MBA Milestones for 2014 [#permalink] New post 05 Mar 2014, 14:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: 5 MBA Milestones for 2014
If you resolved in January that 2014 is the year you will put your MBA decision into action, here are some good next steps to accomplish before spring! We are confident that if you work toward completing these Winter Milestones, you will be well on your way to a successful New Year’s Resolution.

Winter Milestone 1: Review our minimum admissions requirements. This is the most important starting point for determining if you might be a good fit for our program. Also, take a look at our student profiles, which are highlighted on our website to understand the quality of classmates that you may share a class with. These profiles will also give you a great sense of the sheer diversity of our class.

Winter Milestone 2: If you meet some of the requirements but are still a bit unsure, take the Fit With Ivey quiz located on our homepage. This quick quiz will give you a better sense of whether or not your basic experience and goals match what we’re looking for in successful applicants to the program and will suggest some next steps.

Winter Milestone 3: Introduce Yourself! This short form gives us some basic background information and helps us to determine whether or not you might be a good fit for Ivey. A member of our admissions team will follow up with you to give you some information and next steps. Completing Introduce Yourself also ensures that you’ll receive communications for recruiting events in your area and stay up to date on admissions deadlines.

Winter Milestone 4: Book a One-on-One with a Recruiting Manager. A Recruiting Manager will discuss the program with you in more detail, answer any questions you have, and provide you with feedback on your background and experience. They are here to be a resource to you throughout the decision-making and application process.

Winter Milestone 5: Attend an Ivey MBA Event. The best way to determine if the Ivey MBA Program is right for you is to physically put yourself in the Ivey environment to see what we have to offer. If you are early in the research process, you can start with our Information Session. First Class on the Road will allow you to experience the Ivey Case-Method first-hand and a Class Visit or Open House will take you through a day in the life of an Ivey MBA right on the Ivey campus.

2014 promises to be an exciting year! Don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Ivey Recruiting and Admissions Team as you consider the MBA decision. We are always here to help: mba@ivey.ca.

Which MBA Program is Right for You? [#permalink] New post 07 Mar 2014, 12:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: Which MBA Program is Right for You?
With our Early Application Round just two months away on May 5, 2014, Ivey MBA Recruiting and Admissions Director Greg Yantz lays out three key things that should be part of the decision-making process.

I often see prospective students agonizing over which MBA program is best for them. It can be a difficult decision, and it is a lifelong one, but there are three things that I think can help as you work through the decision process.

1.       Experience a real class

Visit a real class with real students. It sounds simple, and nearly every MBA program allows for a class visit (it should raise red flags if they don’t), but you would be surprised how many people decide without having experienced an MBA class or the school where they are about to invest a significant amount of time and money. In my previous role as Director of Ivey Publishing, I visited business schools from India to Indiana and what struck me most was the fact that I could determine the culture within a few moments of setting foot in each of the buildings. Fit matters. Beyond just the experience in the program, this will be your network for life. Would you buy a car or house without seeing it?  Probably not, so visit an MBA program for a test drive and walk-through.

2.       Think short term AND long term

Yes, finding a job right after your MBA is important. You will have debts and will need to set yourself up for future success. But setting yourself up for the first job after an MBA is not the only thing to consider when choosing a program. Think ten years down the road. You won’t be able to go back in ten years and redo your MBA, so ask yourself which program will set you up for success in the longer term. Leadership skills such as communicating effectively, decision making, and managing ambiguity are increasingly important skills and they will carry you far over the long term. Are you thinking about what you will need ten-plus years out?

3.       Define your top three decision points

I often ask people what their key decision points are for choosing an MBA, and oftentimes no one can tell me. Be clear on what is most important to you. Is the pedagogy of the program important to you? Does the quality of your classmates matter to you? Do you care about the length of the program or the location? I propose writing down your top three decision points for comparison among programs. Then, as you interact with representatives from the programs, visit classes, and think about your

short- and long-terms goals, rank the programs on each of the three points.

One additional thing worth mentioning is that admissions representatives at all schools are here to help you with the decision and, specifically, each of the three suggestions mentioned here. Of course we’re proud of what our own schools have to offer, but I think you will find that everyone genuinely cares about what is best for you, and we all recognize that not every school will be a perfect fit. Helping you find that fit is what we’re here for. Good wishes for your decision!

i believe it's important for applicants to know what happens to some people during the application process. i wrote this in the class of 2015 thread but feel everyone should get a well-round perspective before they apply for the class of 2016 intake.

i understand that GMAT Club is about making money, and that it is not a democracy, but I swear there have been so many deleted posts by moderators that i can't even count them all now. this is censorship at its finest.

i saw that Mediah had posted a detailed follow up on his ivey interview, and now it's been deleted!

did ivey get a hold of someone on the forum and threaten to pull advertising dollars?

Mediah, if you see this, is there any way you could PM me with some information on how your interview went? i didn't get a chance to read it all before it got censored.

And everyone who reads this, take note of my post...because I'm sure it will be deleted by the moderators shortly.


EDIT: ***nevermind, i just found it on an archived webpage. here it is in its entirety***

and my guess on the director in question has the initials G.Y., and he can be found on ivey's site.


Mediah wrote:
Hey everyone,

So I thought I'd share my interview experience as I did state that it did not go as I had expected it to go. I want to share some background first. I’ve been networking with Ivey for a couple of years getting to know faculty and staff, more directly with Chris Asper, all of them very professional and approachable. Great people. They have been very supportive and guiding throughout my application process. They have met with me frequently and have been providing advice along the way and have been very encouraging, in fact, pushing me to apply to their school.

The interview was scheduled to be over Skype, and I prefer in person interviews so I humbly asked for an in person interview and they accepted. Over the phone they prepared me for what to expect at the interview: Types of questions including why MBA, why Ivey, and told me that the interview itself will be more conversational and relaxed to confirm my fit to the school. I spent a few weeks preparing for this. Eventually, I received an itinerary. It was lunch/tour/interview. The tour went very well. During the tour I got to see the beautiful school and connect with a new member of the admissions committee. She again prepared for me a very relaxed and conversational interview.

When it came to the interview, I was greeted by an executive director (leaving name aside). When we entered the room and sat down, the first thing I was told was that my resume was crap. Now, my resume is a more functional resume and is used quite frequently in my corporate office for higher band levels, and was previously submitted for feedback to Ivey without receiving anything negative in return, so possibly a personal opinion. I was told by the interviewer that I should just say what I do because they couldn’t read the resume. I started to present my professional experience and about 15 seconds in I was interrupted and was told that response was terrible and that part of their role is to provide feedback to students so the interviewer wanted to give me an opportunity to start over while pointing out again that so far my resume and response hasn’t been great.

I assumed at this point that it might just be a stress test because I’ve been told throughout my professional career to date my interviews are extremely well handled, so I “started over”. At this point I was feeling very uncomfortable and more stressed than ever, my guard was brought down, opposite of what I was told to expect. The interview continued and whenever I responded I was abruptly interrupted frequently with a downplaying/discrediting response making me feel more unwarranted for the program. The interviewer continuously made me feel unwelcomed. Some examples of rough questions included what I thought my biggest challenge would be, and the response I received was “get over it”. The tone was very condescending and I felt like the interviewer was coming off as entitled. Now I’m not one to judge, but I do feel like the interviewer didn’t represent the school as had every other member of the school had done so in the past. It was very unprofessional.

At the end of the day, two weeks later I received a call stating that the interviewers opinion resulted in a rejection and gave me some constructive feedback on how to improve my application going forward. Of course I am disappointed as no one in the past had represented Ivey in this fashion, and for a couple of years they have been pushing me to apply because of my strong application… So to be turned down after a really rough interview is disheartening.

The advice I would provide is regardless of what faculty and staff, or anyone for that matter, prepares you for, you have to expect the worst. Be prepared to be grilled and defend yourself well. I would not request an in person interview, as an interview over Skype would be with alumni etc, and not an executive director.

Good luck to the rest of you, I will be working hard this year to continue to build my application, but I am hesitant to do so for Ivey because of the picture that was painted during the interview.



Mediah, if i were you, i wouldn't give up on Ivey. not for a second.

sure, the admissions people push people to apply...that's just because they want everyone and their sister to apply -- that way they can say they only allowed x% of all applicants into the program. it artificially inflates their #'s so they can use it in their recruitment process.

did the director (G.Y.) have some kind of ax to grind with you? seems as though he didn't even want to give you a chance. was there something you did to turn him off? sounds like no matter what your response was going to be, the director had it in for you the moment he heard you were applying. did you sleep with his boyfriend or something? perhaps you didn't fit the mould they are looking for (even though everyone else says you'd be a great fit)? from what you wrote, it looks as though you got declined the moment you asked for an inperson interview. and that's terrible.

what kind of constructive advice did ivey tell you when you didn't get accepted?

if i were you, i'd keep applying until you get in. maybe it was all just a test to measure your resilience and if you would get back up again after getting knocked down. and next time you get an interview, keep it as a skype interview and record it!

if you recorded your interview with GY, you'd be able to send that to the dean/chancellor of the university and show them how their executive director acts to potential mba students -- unprofessional and uncouth.

not only that, the biggest irony is that GY touts ivey this, ivey that, yet he himself isn't even an ivey alum!!!

Reflections on a year at Ivey [#permalink] New post 02 Apr 2014, 06:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: Reflections on a year at Ivey
This time of year is always bittersweet for us. We say goodbye to one class the same week that another one starts its incredible journey through the Ivey MBA Program. Inevitably, our team starts to get a little reflective — we’ve developed relationships with those who are leaving us and are excited about what’s to come for those just starting out.

Having been with the school for over seven years now, candidates often ask me what it is I like the most about Ivey (usually in conjunction with the question “Why should I choose Ivey over X school?”) Though my answer may seem simplistic, it is the simple truth that the people make the Ivey MBA experience what it is. We get to meet so many talented, bright young leaders whose accomplishments (at such young ages, I might add!) truly amaze me. We also get to witness the significant transformation that happens to these people throughout their year here: the initially shy students who come out of their shells through case-method learning and supportive, encouraging classmates; those business undergrads who come to realize how much they really didn’t know before starting this program; and those with the ‘atypical’ backgrounds who were scared of coming into the program with no business knowledge; to see them participating, contributing, and enjoying the learning process. It’s such a rewarding experience for us to witness these students achieve their goals and leave the program more confident, inspired, and ready to lead than when they arrived.

Their development would not be possible without the constant support, encouragement, and guidance of Ivey’s faculty. They are more devoted to student growth and development than any I have heard of or witnessed through any other program. They know every student’s name and always commit whatever time is needed to ensure that each is living up to his or her full potential. Whether it’s staying after class to help those who are struggling,  encouraging and supporting contribution, or even just stopping to hang out when they see students in the halls or the cafeteria (or joining them for a drink or two!), Ivey profs genuinely care. The number one priority for these teachers is student success — and that success cannot be achieved within the confines of ‘office hours’ (note: Ivey faculty have an open door policy. No office hours exist here). It takes a special kind of faculty member to be successful at case-method teaching and Ivey’s faculty are world-class at being able to draw the most learning from each individual’s experiences and make it fun in the process. (If you’ve ever fallen asleep in a class before, you definitely haven’t been to an Ivey class!)

And of course, I can’t say enough about the alumni— a true family of people who are fiercely loyal to each other and the school. I’m still constantly amazed by their level of responsiveness when asked to help or support our initiatives, big or small: recruiting events, career recruitment, the Alumni partnership program, as guest speakers, at professional club events, alumni/student dinners, or even just an email exchange, phone call, or coffee meeting with a student. This culture of saying ‘yes’ is ingrained in everyone who comes through the doors of Ivey. It’s a pay-it-forward philosophy that can only be built over 90 years of shared experiences.

I consider myself incredibly lucky to come to work every day and to be surrounded by such a talented and committed group of people. We all truly believe that Ivey delivers the best MBA student experience and, every day, we work hard to make sure it’s the kind of transformational and life-changing experience that we are all so proud of.

So, to the MBA Class of 2015:Welcome. Get ready. You are in for the best year of your life.

Why How You Learn is So Important [#permalink] New post 17 Apr 2014, 11:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: Why How You Learn is So Important
By: Greg Yantz, Director, Ivey MBA Recruiting and Admissions

If you are spending a lot of time on, and money for, an education, you want the school to be the very best at providing a method of learning that teaches critical analysis, developing solutions to complex problems, working with ambiguity, and more.

So what does Ivey do as a school that makes how you learn so unique? It’s difficult to describe without experiencing it, but one of our current students recently described it to me as “engaged learning.”  He said that a friend in another MBA program told him he has the best class right now because he’s never fallen asleep even once. Our Ivey student said, “People fall asleep? That could never happen at Ivey!” Why? Because learning at Ivey is a participatory process that involves constant interaction in order to discuss, debate, and share ideas.

In most Ivey classes cell phones and computers must be turned off, and most people wouldn’t consider turning them on anyway because they want to pay attention. It’s fast-moving in the classroom, and that isn’t all of it. Even before coming to the classroom there is individual reflection and background reading, then discussion and analysis takes place in learning teams with people from diverse industry and geographical backgrounds. Only then does it all collide in the high-energy classroom format.

I went through years of traditional, passive learning, and this active Ivey process was entirely new to me. Having embraced it in the classes I took at Ivey I don’t think I could ever go back. The case studies that Ivey uses as a basis for learning, though not the only tool, provide such rich discussion and understanding. They are all about real businesses and real people. Some are classics, like Starbucks, which are fun to discuss in the context of what we know today. Some are so new that the business in the case has not actually solved the challenges in question yet. Many are international, which provides insight into entirely different ways of thinking about business challenges. Our faculty write many of the cases themselves and those cases are then used in MBA programs around the world. Our Ivey Case-Method, however, is unique. Also, the fact that I could ask the author of the case, who did the research on the company, questions about what really happened deepened my learning. At times the protagonist in the case would be invited to speak to the class too.

You deserve to get the most out of your MBA experience. And your future employers will have expectations about what you can bring to the table as an MBA graduate. How you learn matters in preparing you.

Here is my pitch: visit each school and ask to sit in on a live class with real students (who are hopefully awake). At Ivey we have formal class visit days monthly (http://go.ivey.ca/events) and we will make it easy for you to come and visit. But if these won’t fit into your schedule we will find a class and a time that will.

We look forward to sharing the Ivey Case-Method experience with you soon.

How the Ivey MBA is similar to CrossFit [#permalink] New post 29 Apr 2014, 13:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: How the Ivey MBA is similar to CrossFit
For about a year now, I have had a new fitness passion — CrossFit. CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that uses constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. The program is used by many police academies and tactical operations teams, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. A CrossFit gym is different from a regular gym in that it doesn’t have any machines; instead, it is filled with equipment like barbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, climbing ropes, and Olympic rings. The program prioritizes compound exercises like squats, dead-lifts, bench-presses, and pull-ups instead of isolation exercises.It’s also different in that there is a prescribed workout of the day to complete, and everyone who shows up to the class is there to complete that workout together.

Even though I’ve only been doing CrossFit for a short time, I’ve found that there are many similarities between CrossFit and the Ivey MBA Program.

First, CrossFit uses a lot of compound movements. In one exercise, several muscle groups are being worked at the same time. This has many advantages:  more calories burned during exercise, a full body workout faster, and the simulation of real-world exercises and activities. At Ivey, our Case-Method of Learning puts you into the role of decision maker and simulates real-life business problems and real-world decision making. Often, problems span multiple business units, so you learn not only how each unit functions, but also how they impact one another.  In addition, you are working on your analytical, listening, and speaking skills.

CrossFit is both competitive and collaborative. Though I might try to lift more weight than others or to be amongst the first to finish the workout, we encourage each other to set a personal best lift/time or to complete the workout. It’s a community, just like Ivey. In the MBA program, students compete for contribution marks but everyone is encouraging and willing to help others learn and improve. At the end of the day, everyone wants to see others do their best and succeed.

CrossFit’s intensity is challenging. The workouts can be miserable, but it has taught me how to push through mental barriers and build mental toughness. When I complete a workout that is difficult, I feel proud and learn more about my capabilities. In the same way, the Ivey MBA is challenging. Within one year, you will accomplish far more than you ever thought you were capable of. When you’re pushed beyond your self-imposed limits, you learn just how capable you truly are.

Is CrossFit for everyone? In my opinion, no. It depends on your personality, prior injuries, fitness level, and goals. The Ivey MBA won’t be the right fit for everyone either. But, if you desire an intense experience, where what and how you are learning is relevant to the real world, you want to push yourself to challenge your limits, and you want to be part of a high-calibre community, then you must consider the Ivey MBA. Attend an event, book a one-on-one, and introduce yourself on our website to get the process started.

At Ivey, our Case-Method of Learning puts you into the role of decision maker and simulates real-life business problems and real-world decision making. Often, problems span multiple business units, so you learn not only how each unit functions, but also how they impact one another.  In addition, you are working on your analytical, listening, and speaking skills.

CrossFit is both competitive and collaborative. Though I might try to lift more weight than others or to be amongst the first to finish the workout, we encourage each other to set a personal best lift/time or to complete the workout. It’s a community, just like Ivey. In the MBA program, students compete for contribution marks but everyone is encouraging and willing to help others learn and improve. At the end of the day, everyone wants to see others do their best and succeed.

CrossFit’s intensity is challenging. The workouts can be miserable, but it has taught me how to push through mental barriers and build mental toughness. When I complete a workout that is difficult, I feel proud and learn more about my capabilities. In the same way, the Ivey MBA is challenging. Within one year, you will accomplish far more than you ever thought you were capable of. When you’re pushed beyond your self-imposed limits, you learn just how capable you truly are.

Is CrossFit for everyone? In my opinion, no. It depends on your personality, prior injuries, fitness level, and goals. The Ivey MBA won’t be the right fit for everyone either. But, if you desire an intense experience, where what and how you are learning is relevant to the real world, you want to push yourself to challenge your limits, and you want to be part of a high-calibre community, then you must consider the Ivey MBA. Attend an event, book a one-on-one, and introduce yourself on our website to get the process started.

Five mistakes MBA applicants make [#permalink] New post 08 May 2014, 09:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: Five mistakes MBA applicants make
….

This article was written by Ivey’s  Executive Director of Career Management and Corporate Recruiting, Sharon Irwin-Foulon. It was featured in this week’s Globe and Mail and we thought it was worth re-posting here!

So you’ve finally graduated from university and now you’ve got business school in your sights. In the rush to get into a school, MBA candidates forget that not every school will help further their career or even provide a good experience while they’re attending. Here is a list of some of the most critical mistakes we see MBA candidates make:

1. Go to whatever school accepts you (and/or offers you the most money). Doing an MBA is a big investment of time and money. Do you know what your objectives are going in? A school with a diverse and impressive network of graduates? High-quality classmates? Curriculum specific to your goals? Before accepting or applying to any school, ask yourself: Walking across the stage at graduation, how will I know this has been time and money well spent? Once you have that answer, you can dig in on the schools you are looking at to make sure they have a history of meeting those goals for their alumni. If you do your due diligence and goal-setting up front, you will be a great candidate for the schools you have applied to, and, in being so, your odds of being accepted along with a scholarship are likely to increase.

2. Believe that magazines publishing MBA rankings know what you need in an MBA. The MBA rankings publications are often the best-selling issues for many top tier magazines and newspapers. But is the rankings criteria set by these publications your criteria? Is it important to you that the school is renowned for research, or does the quality of student experience matter more? Does the number of faculty publications matter to you, or are you more interested in teaching quality? To be discerning about the decision ahead of you, you need to take a deeper look at the rankings and how each dimension is weighted. You might be surprised to find that those weightings don’t align with your own personal objectives in getting an MBA.

3. Get an MBA as soon as possible. A good MBA will not define you; instead, it will augment the great things you already bring to the table. Ivey’s Admissions pros like to see that you have moved along in your career, that you have learned more, received more responsibility, and have had the opportunity to demonstrate an ability to get stuff done. This is what MBA admissions professionals (and the world’s top recruiters) call maturity, good judgment, and influencing skills. Why does it matter? Because there is a saying in recruiting, “Past performance dictates future performance.” As you move along in your career, employers will care more about decision-making, communication and influencing skills; all things a great program will help you do better. This is why I typically recommend that applicants wait to do an MBA until they have at least 2 or 3 years of meaningful work experience. This is when the MBA becomes a great toolkit alongside all of the achievements that have given you star power up to this point. Yes, there are schools that will admit you early in your career, take your tuition and send you on your way. But with work experience to draw from, you can get so much more return on your investment from an MBA degree and it will take your career farther, afaster.

4. Ignore the admissions criteria. Think about your MBA or grad school degree as an investment. Because it is an investment, you need to care about the school’s admissions decision-making process along with its curriculum, professors and, just as importantly, your classmates. For the most part, schools have admissions processes and criteria that align with their own reputations. As more and more MBA schools are popping up globally, many top schools around the world are choosing to stay small, or are shrinking, so that they can be picky about whom they admit. The reputation of a school – and of those who graduate from it – depends on who they admit. My best advice: Pick a school that aligns with your own career and reputational goals. The school and program name will sit on your resume for the rest of your life. Pay attention to who else has that degree on their resume. Aside from seeking out alumni who have graduated from the school, dig deep on what the admissions criteria currently is: Are they trying to fill seats or do they have an intensive process for selecting high-quality candidates? Be picky and true to your goals.

5. Limit yourself to programs in your city. Okay, if this is your criteria for choosing a school, you missed all the other points above, and there isn’t much more to say about that.

this is why unless you are a top-tier MBA school such as Harvard Business School or Darden School of Business, you shouldn't really tout the fact that you differentiate yourself by being entirely case-method learning.

and for those wondering, no, ivey is not top-tier...no matter what that friendly ghost with short-man syndrome says.

Time to Get Connected [#permalink] New post 30 May 2014, 09:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: Time to Get Connected
…..

It’s that time of year again! Our MBA students are getting ready for their debut to alumni and recruiters at the annual Get Connected event in Toronto. This intensive, three-day event is the capstone to the initial 10-weeks of in-class, Career Management programming. During their time in Toronto, students will be invited to exclusive Information Sessions with top recruiting firms, participate in a networking event with over 200 Ivey alumni, spend the day practicing mock-interviews with real company representatives, and listen to recruiter/alumni panels that discuss the most effective strategies for career success. As a formal kick-off to recruiting season, students embrace this opportunity to practice and hone the networking and presentation skills they have learned in first weeks of the program, and to make valuable connections with key recruiters and companies who will participate in on-campus recruiting this Fall.

To give you an idea of what students can expect during Get Connected, take a look at this day-in-the-life video from MBA 2014, Leslie Shaw:

How To Interact With Recruiting Teams [#permalink] New post 09 Jul 2014, 10:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: How To Interact With Recruiting Teams
We spend a lot of time on this blog talking about all of the things that can help you get a handle on the admissions process and prepare you to submit the best MBA application you can. But what exactly is the role of the recruiting and admissions team and how should you interact with us throughout the process?

The first thing to know is that we are here to help. Part of our role is to support and give guidance to applicants, providing them with insight about Ivey and the admissions process at the school; however, it’s important to think about what questions to ask. Our expectation is that you discover and package the unique strengths about your candidacy and sell them to the admissions team in your application and interview. So, how can you do this?

Here are some good questions that you might want to ask the recruiting and admissions team(s):

What is the average GMAT score, years of work experience, and undergraduate average for the class?

Most schools (including Ivey) post the minimum admission requirements for these application components on their website; however, knowing the averages for the class can help you determine where you stack up within the applicant pool and where on your application you may need to work on improving your competitiveness. Don’t let the averages scare you — remember that there will be candidates admitted who are both above AND below the average scores.

What skills/competencies are typical traits found in successful candidates?

It’s important to gain an understanding of what the admissions committee is looking for beyond those hard skills and qualifications that are found in your GMAT score, grades, and work experience. While this information may be available on the website, a conversation with someone from the recruiting and admissions team, or an alumnus or current student, can give you a clearer understanding of the skills necessary to succeed in the Ivey classroom. Attending a recruiting event like First Class on the Road or Class Visit is a great way to get some face-to-face time with the admissions team and to learn about those traits that can’t be objectively measured but are critical to submitting a successful application.

What is the admissions process, and how long does it take?

You’ll find that the admissions process is a bit different at each school, as is the amount of time it takes for the review/interview process. It’s perfectly acceptable for you to ask about how the process works and what your and their next steps are as well as the amount of time it’s likely to take before you receive an admissions decision.

Here are some of the questions that you should try to avoid when interacting with the recruiting and admissions team:

What are my chances?

Asking this question to the admissions committee implies a lack of awareness about what you bring to the table, the strength of your application, and your knowledge about the admissions criteria. The application review process on our end is extremely thorough and considers every single piece of the application equally, including essays, references, and interviews. There is no one-size-fits-all answer for determining who will be granted admission. Instead, consider asking some of the questions listed above to determine which parts of your application can be improved to present your candidacy in the best possible light.

Why should I choose Ivey over X school?

The MBA decision is incredibly individual and personal, so asking this question of the admissions committee shows a lack of research and passion in choosing the right MBA program for you. Your MBA is a lifetime investment, and selecting the school that you want to align yourself with for the rest of your career needs to be YOUR decision. The school you choose must be a strong fit in terms of the culture, the program structure, and your post-MBA goals. Everyone’s reasons for doing an MBA and their post-MBA goals are different — there is no one “best” business school, but there is a best business school for you. Our expectation is that you will have done some research on the different schools that meet your criteria and which one is a stronger fit for you. We encourage all candidates tovisit the campuses of the schools they are considering to get a feel for the program, the faculty, and the student experience.

What jobs will be available when I graduate?

Ivey MBAs have a consistent career placement rateof 90-plus per cent; however, no business school can predict turns in the economy or the number of job opportunities in any given year. Ivey has strong relationships and a long history with many of the top recruiting firms who recruit on-campus year over year and an exceptional Career Management team who works with students to advise them on successful career management strategies. Your success in the job market depends on your individual goals, how you choose to engage with Career Management, and the amount of work you put into executing a successful job search strategy.

These are simply some recommendations on the questions you may want to consider when interacting with the admissions team. The business school research and admissions process is very individual and there is no one-size-fits-all answer to all questions, so feel free to contact us!  We want to make the process as smooth as possible and we are here to help.

Application Tips and FAQs [#permalink] New post 29 Aug 2014, 09:00
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: Application Tips and FAQs
It’s the Labour Day Weekend here in Canada, which means the end of summer and the start of back to school! It also means that our Round 1 Application Deadline is just around the corner on September 22, 2014. We want to leave you with some quick tips for making sure your application is completed accurately and answer some FAQS that have been coming through our office as of late:

 Online Application and Submitting Documents

You can begin the online application at http://go.ivey.ca/apply. Note that supporting documentation (transcripts, resumé/CV, references, etc.) is NOT uploaded via the online application. This documentation should be emailed to mbaappresume@ivey.ca. A checklist of requirements can be found at http://go.ivey.ca/admissions.

Be sure you are using a home computer (at times, organizations have firewalls that block the online application site). Should you run into any technical difficulties with the application, please feel free to contact our IT Centre directly at itcenter@ivey.ca with “Urgent” in the subject line. They will get back to you ASAP to troubleshoot.

 Transcripts

We only require official transcripts if and when you receive an admissions offer. For the purposes of reviewing your application, we encourage you to scan and email us a copy of unofficial transcripts, which we can use to move your application forward. This speeds up the review process and allows you time to request official transcripts from your institution if needed.

 Reference Forms

The application includes a template form that you can download and send to your referees. We request a minimum of two professional references, but you may include up to three. Referees can forward the completed form to us directly at mbaappresume@ivey.ca provided they include full contact information. Or, you may email or direct mail the completed reference forms to us yourself (again, with full contact information for the referees).

References MAY arrive after you have completed your application. This component will not prevent us from moving your application forward; however, we will not provide an admissions decision until these have been received and reviewed in conjunction with your application.

GMAT Timelines and Rewriting

If you are planning to write or rewrite your GMAT after the application deadline, you are still encouraged to submit the remainder of your application as soon as possible. On the application, please include your current GMAT score (if applicable) and the date that you are scheduled to write (or rewrite) the test. This will allow us to put a file together for you and get started on the review of your application. We will only use your highest GMAT score for our final review and will not make any admissions decisions until a new score is received. On the day you write or rewrite the GMAT exam, please scan and email us a copy of the unofficial score report (mbaappresume@ivey.ca). We will use this to complete your file.

Essays

We recommend completing your essays in a Word document and then cutting and pasting into the application just prior to hitting submit. This ensures that hours of hard work won’t be lost should unpredictable technical issues arise.

Application Submission Timelines

Your application documents do not need to arrive all at once — you can send them in pieces if you like. Once we receive any type of supporting documentation, we will begin an admissions file. As additional components come in, they will get added to the file. Once we have received the online application submission, we will check to ensure that all other supporting documents have also arrived.

Receipt of Supporting Documents

Please do not contact us to confirm receipt of application and documents. Given the large volume of applications and components (and our limited resources!) we are not able to check on the status of each candidate’s file. If there is anything missing from your application, we will notify you once your application has been submitted online. If you don’t hear from us within 3-5 business days, you can rest assured that all is in order.

Keep us updated!

It’s always good to keep your Recruiting Manager in the loop on your timeline and plans for submitting your application. We try to be as flexible as we can with various situations and do our best to provide options if unexpected circumstances arise. And, feel free to drop us a note once you’ve submitted the application! (If you don’t have a Recruiting Manager and would like to speak with one about your questions, contact us at mba@ivey.ca).

Our final piece of advice: submit your application whenever you are ready! You do not have to wait for a deadline, and/or, you are welcome to submit AFTER the deadline as well. We start to process applications as soon as they arrive and they are reviewed on a ‘first submitted, first reviewed’ basis.

Please note that this year, due to the transition of our database systems, there will be an application blackout period from September 29 to October 2, inclusive. All the more reason to submit for September 22nd! We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.

 If you have ANY questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us! You can reach our main line at 519-661-3212 or mba@ivey.ca. Or, contact your Recruiting Manager directly.

We can’t wait to see your applications!
