Western University MBA Program

Ivey’s 15-month EMBA program is divided into three five-month terms, with students spending Thursday to Sunday studying at the school’s Toronto campus. With a focus on fundamentals and leadership skills, the program also involves a week-long residential module at the Ivey’s London, Ont. campus at the start of each term. In keeping with the program’s focus on a global business outlook, students participate in an Executive Client Field Project, where they partner with a Canadian company looking to expand into India, China or Vietnam. The project culminates in a 10-day trip to the target country, where students are able to apply what they’ve learned in a real-world scenario. Classes start in September and February.
