This review is for Ivey
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2017
The program is great, the core segment is incredibly intense and really gets people out of their comfort zone. Career opportunities are good, but not as great as the school makes it seem. It is heavily consulting focused.
1. Take the numbers in career report with a grain of salt. I'm not sure about how they do the survey, but 92% employment rate is exaggerated. Also, it includes people have returned to previous employers and didn't really make a transition. Often students end up going back because they couldn't get something else.
2. It's expensive, so be sure you really think about your potential after the program. MBB' and a few consulting firms pay on the higher side, but everyone else makes fair bit below the advertised average salary. The high paying jobs are very competitive.
3. Be clear exactly where you want to go after, focus and network. It's a 1 year program so focus is crucial.
The case based method is fantastic. The grading is a joke with "contribution" making a large portion of the grade, so talk in class even if it is not valuable.
