Hi,

Congratulations to everyone who got in :)
I'm applying for 2016 intake & wanted to know whether it would be a disadvantage for an international student to apply in Round 3?
Would I still be eligible for scholarships, if any?

A little about me:
GMAT : 720 (Q49 V39)
TOEFL : 110 (although language of instruction in bachelors was English)
Pre MBA: Business Analyst in Indian IT company (Onsite for last 6 months)
Post MBA: Management Consulting
Decent extra-curriculars.

Thanks in advance.

What I’ve Learned From My MBA – by Christina Rupsingh, Ivey MBA 2016  [#permalink]

FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: What I’ve Learned From My MBA – by Christina Rupsingh, Ivey MBA 2016
This blog was originally published on LeanInCanada.com.

The first day of my MBA journey at the Ivey Business School is one I will never forget. I remember walking into my first class with one of the outstanding faculty at Ivey, Dennis Shackel. We were immediately pushed outside of our comfort zone after he selected students at random to impromptu present (or sing!) in front of the entire class. That day, I knew that the journey I was about to begin would be a transformative one.

Before pursuing my MBA, I worked for Manulife Financial as part of a Rotational Program, moving from Information Systems to Product Development and finally Global Strategy. This was an incredible experience for me; my colleagues and mentors helped me to shape my career and solidify my career goals. As co-founder of Lean In Canada I decided that, after five years, it was time to embrace our mission and lean in to my own goals and aspirations of becoming an MBA graduate at one of the top business schools in Canada. As the months progressed, I was completely overwhelmed with the unique learning style, school work, and group case studies. All of my classmates are outstanding, and sitting in on case discussions was intimidating. At Ivey, all students are high achievers and active participants, not only in class discussions but in extracurricular activities. My peers have definitely influenced me in terms of how I approach business challenges and have also motivated me to take more risks.

One of my favourite quotes is by Alan Cohen: “There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power,” and this is truly how I feel today. I am so happy that I took on this challenge. I am pushing my limits and I recognize the importance of staying actively engaged and involved as well as being open to new experiences. In her book Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead, Sheryl Sandberg states that women are less likely to go for “stretch opportunities” — an imperative part of the conversation as we work towards gender equality. This is clear as only 30 per cent of my class are women. The group of women that I am a part of is absolutely incredible, and every day in class I see stereotypes being challenged. I am proud to be a part of this circle, and I hope that more women take the leap as I can sincerely say the experience has surpassed all my expectations and has truly challenged me as a person.

With the upcoming recruiting season, I know some of my biggest challenges are ahead of me. I will take every opportunity as a chance to grow both personally and professionally, and if I have learned anything so far, it is to dream big and aim high regardless of what the outcome may be!

I heard back within a week of submitting the application, but that was back in April when it wasn't peak MBA App time. I'm sure they have a lot of applications to sort through this time of year

Glad I'm not the only one... I submitted on October 7 and I'm waiting to hear about scheduling an interview as well. I'll provide updates as they become available so as to set expectations for any others that are applying to Ivey.

Why Quality Matters  [#permalink]

New post 30 Oct 2015, 12:01
FROM Ivey MBA Admissions Blog: Why Quality Matters
With our Round 4 Application Deadline coming up on Monday, November 23 we thought it would be worth talking again about the importance of quality, what that looks like in an Ivey MBA candidate, and why it matters so much in the classroom.

Quality Matters

Although we receive hundreds of applications each year and our process is competitive, Ivey is looking for great people, not just great applications. With Case-Method Learning, the quality of your classmates truly matters at Ivey more than it might at other programs — this is because much of your learning is done through the contributions of and discussions with your classmates. Your class will be full of people who have had unique experiences and come from diverse backgrounds ranging from military and medical to banking and consulting to arts and communications to law and engineering.

What we are looking for is the best MBA candidates; those who show leadership potential, bring a strong professional skill-set, and have demonstrated a track record of success and achievement in their work experience.

What does a quality candidate look like?

Management experience and 700-plus GMAT scores do not guarantee admission just as lower GMAT scores and entry-level experience do not automatically eliminate candidates. We want well-rounded people who will both contribute and be willing to learn from the contributions of those in the class; candidates who recognize the skills and knowledge they bring to the discussions and who have an established, focused goal to accelerate their career success. A quality class is only achieved through thorough evaluation of complete applications, a rigorous admissions interview process, and an understanding of the candidate’s fit.

Recruiters respond to quality

Our selective evaluation process ensures that our recruiters are getting the top talent they have come to expect from Ivey. In fact, our recruiters see Ivey’s admissions process as a type of pre-screen for the high-calibre candidates they are looking for because they are familiar with our rigorous admissions process. It’s why our recruiting partners continue to come back to Ivey year over year (even in tough market conditions when they may not be recruiting from our competitors) and why our employment rate is the highest of all the Canadian business schools (92% for 2014). The top organizations in the world recruit at Ivey because they know we have skimmed the top of the pool for the best talent.

Meeting the challenge

If you want to learn from the best, you have to be surrounded by the best. That’s why we put our students in a classroom full of people who will motivate, challenge, and support each other. The entire environment at Ivey is dynamic and collaborative; your faculty and fellow students will support you in your personal and professional growth, encourage your development, and push you outside of your comfort zone to build your confidence and leadership skills. At Ivey we believe that education can be a transformational experience and it’s our job as the Recruiting and Admissions team to put together a class that makes this transformation happen. It’s an intensive and challenging year that will push your boundaries — but quality candidates who are up for the challenge will gain more in one year than they could have ever expected from any other MBA program.

If you want to learn more about what we’re looking for and how our admissions criteria aligns with your background and experience, please get in touch with us at mba@ivey.ca or submit a resumé for feedback — we’d be happy to speak with you!
