Hi Ducksworth,

I chose to apply to Richard Ivey, because it s the best in Canada, moreover whenever I interacted with anybody in the university, be it alumni or staff, I got positive vibes. The admission staff is very warm and go out of their way to reach out and stay in touch. I attended an MBA class of Ivey and liked he case study method. The high fees is a deterrent but everything else makes Ivey my 1st choice.

I agree with everything you wrote. I visited Ivey in May and I had a great experience. Let me tell you a few reasons that make me hesitate about applying to Ivey (maybe someone can comment on them):

  • It does not have the possibility of doing a summer internship. My goal is to work for an IB at the end so this is a major concern.
  • I will be going with my wife, and London seems like a very small town. It would make more sense to go to Toronto or Montreal so that she can find a job.
  • Ivey and Western Ontario are not very well known brands outside Canada. I do not know where I will be working in 10 or 20 years’ time so this choice seems risky.

I also have other positive points about Ivey, on top of what you mentioned:
  • One year programme, which is great since I am married and "older".
  • Good choice of finance electives for the second half of the year.

Hi Ducksworth,

I agree it does not have a possibility of a summer internship, but the institute has a strong alumni network and a great brand value in Canada, so getting a job should not be a problem. I am not aware of London, so cannot comment on the possibility of your spouse getting a job. In fact I have a colleague working in the Zurich office who passed out of Ivey and according to her, If you are considering Canada, Ivey should be your first choice and Rotman a distant second...she advised me not to look beyond these two. Moreover the way the institute is trying to spread its wings and establish tie ups abroad... in 10 or 20 years you really never know where the brand name will take you... I am still to get the interview call, let's see how it goes. Will keep you posted. If I may ask, where else are you applying... and I am on the wrong side of 30...so I am not sure how much "older" can you possibly be than me :))

Hi there.
* I do have the same impression about Ivey >Rotman>>>>>the rest, at least within Canada. Although the reputation abroad might be Toronto > McGill > the rest. Notice I write the name of universities and not of business schools.
* I am applying only to 1 year programmes, and probably all will be in Europe unless I make up my mind about Ivey. Still finalising my list but will probably be a subset of Insead, IMD, and UK schools.
* I will be 33 in May.

Anyway, let's keep posting our impressions about Ivey. Good luck mate!

London is a pretty happening town with a lot of Canadian head offices like 3M and McCormicks. Of course it isn't Toronto or Montreal, but I wouldn't expect it to be extremely difficult for your wife for a year.

Victoriknox, I wouldn't rule out Ivey because of high fees. Rotman's tuition is much higher to Ivey and Schulich's is comparable. That being said, you are iiving in a city where rent, entertainment, and transportation are much less than Toronto and only for one year. All in all, Ivey is a much better bargain in acrual dollar terms.

Ivey is considered a Toronto school and a lot of recruiters go out there, so don't worry about that aspect. It is difficult to take advantage of certain networking events in the GTA. That being said, most of us that go to the Toronto schools don't take advantage either.

One thing I know about Ivey is the class is very collegial, which brings good and bad qualities. You become closer with your classmates because everyone is from somewhere else and wants to make friends, but that also brings its fair share of interpersonal drama. I had a friend where the husband went to Ivey about six years ago and the wife lived with him. She went to Schulich in my class year (2010-2012) and she said it was a warmer experience to be at Ivey because no one was based in London for life. I don't know how much that plays into your decision, but it is certainly a positive in my eye.

Good luck this week!

Sorry mate. Maybe it's too soon, but once you've had time to see things with perspective, maybe you can share your opinions on why you think you were not successful. All the best.

Dec 14 is the absoulte latest they will let you know but when I went for my interview about 3.5 weeks ago they told me I'd probably have a response in 3-4 weeks after the interview....Still haven't heard anything yet though.

Anyone that has had a R2 interview hear back one way or another yet?
