Hello everyone, I just got my PR and start preparing the application.
After sent my CV to Ivey, they respond my post-grad experience have exceeds the maximum for what they would consider a fit for MBA. What do you think if I should go ahead or not ?
I spent 11 years in healthcare industry, from technical sectors to sales roles. 32 years old , Is that a problem?

Hi maxandmxd,

Great initiative on submitting your CV for preliminary assessment.

Ivey’s cohort typically average between 4-6 years experience in a given year, it’s understandable why the AdComs might think somebody with nearly double that, might not benefit greatly from the Ivey MBA experience.

Might sharing your profile? GMAT & Post-MBA goals ?

I can possibly suggest a few alternatives.

Hi pakman33
Appreciate your help.
Bachelor degree on Engineering.GPA is around 3.
11 years experience in healthcare industry in MNC. Latest role is Sales Manager.
PTE(above 70) and IELTS (6.5) during PR application. Checked Ivey brochure, they accept PTE, but can't found in application system.
Post MBA goals:
When I start apply immigration, I am not afraid to start over again. I had strong evidence on technical and sales in Asia healthcare market. What I lack are international experience and skills on strategy and general management.
In short term, a product or marketing role in Canada is what I purchase after MBA.

I think you can leverage your experience and overall profile more effectively by scoring a high-600 GMAT.

Many MBA programs have more experienced cohorts (IMD, Warwick, Cranfield & NUS come to mind).

They have median GMAT scores that vary from 630 to 680 + Average work experience of 7-9 years.

Might be worth investigating further !

Hello Everyone
I'm planning to start the application now. I dont have my essays prepared, but i'm hoping to get it done by Sept. 10. But I have a few apprehensions about applying in the last round. Does the round of applying matter very much?
Profile:
B.Tech from an IIT - 7.8/10
WE: 3 yrs in Business development in construction industry in a MNC.
GMAT: 700

Also, my college admin has told me that it might take up to 20 days to deliver the transcript. So if i complete my application earlier, would the school be flexible in extending the deadline for transcript.

No such group exists in my knowledge, but you can take lead and start one. Here is a list of this year's admits in case you want to tag them...

Hi,

Are Indian applicants eligible for a 3 year work permit post completion of the course? I heard from someone that it's a 12 months course so one is not eligible for a 3 year work permit.

From what I know -

Length of your program = Length of your work permit.

Say if you're doing a 12-month program that will make you eligible for a 12-month work permit. A lot of people get 36 months of work permit for pursuing a 24 months course.

But please to be sure you need to study cic.gc.ca website carefully and contact them directly.

This is correct, not just for Indian but everyone. So it would be best to pursue 2 year programs if 3y is what you're after. Given the positive developments in the UK about two years in the country post-mba regardless of course, that might be another option to go for.

Share some thoughts as an existing Ivey MBA student. So far experience has been quite disappointing (I'm not badmouthing anything/anyone, and just presenting facts here):
- Huge discrepancy in student quality (in the name of diversity). Think of a scenario where you as a senior consultant having to sit thru a discussion with someone who's never done consulting and doesn't know what he/she is saying. There are classmates who don't even speak proper English
- This whole "case method" is a joke, at least at the MBA level. In many courses, professors spend (waste) way more time on case facts than having meaningful discussion
- Almost "toxic" culture around having to earn high marks on contribution. In many cases, it seems the whole point of the going to a class is to say something/contribute and then you are done, because you've earned the mark
- If you are pursuing consulting/finance (especially high finance like i-banking), not being in Toronto is a massive drawback for networking
- If you are switching industries through MBA, not being able to do an internship puts you at the bottom of the pool when it comes to full-time recruiting, as the trend now is that companies prioritize conversion of summer interns and internal hires over hiring someone who's not proven through internships. This is true regardless of industry
- Speaking of employment, simply take two grains of salt with respect to the official employment report. Majority of my class haven't found full-time jobs as of Nov 2019 (because not many firms come to hire at Ivey MBA), and for many who found jobs, those jobs are quite low bar on the value-chain
- Career management team is a total mess with little value-add due to recent departure of a few employees, period
- Lastly, Ivey charges $6 for a breakfast bagel, and $2 for ONE banana

In summary, if you are pursuing consulting/finance post-MBA, I highly recommending picking schools based out of Toronto over Ivey. And don't be mislead by the "value" of a one-year MBA program. Remember, Ivey's not charging you half of Rotman/Schulich, and the goal here is for the school to make more money given the dwindling pool of students.

Good luck guys!

Thanks for the candid feedback collahola !

I think a lot of people would like to hear more about your experience.

Would you mind sharing your profile, what your goals were going into the MBA and how you placed coming out?

You can even provide a review on GMATclub so future applicants can know what they are getting themselves into!
