The Ivey Academy

  • If you are looking for management training in Canada, there are many good options. If you are looking for world world-class, university university-based executive education, the list is shorter – there are four or five B B-Schools to consider . If you are looking for meaningful, transformative, long long-lasting behaviour change, we are the only game in town in Canada.
    Behaviour change, in any discipline, is rooted in breaking old habits and replacing them with new habits. Old habits are identified through introspection and objective feedback – and then broken with exposure to new ways of addressing problems. New habits are established through practice – and then reinforced with application, ongoing coaching and peer support support.

Real World Perspective


Business schools are often accused of being overly academic. Ivey is not – Ivey provides real world leadership development

Ivey is the second largest producer of cases in the world with over 10,000 cases at our disposal based on real problems from real organizations


Cases are produced in -house, this means faculty are dealing with real-world managers and executives on a consistent and continual basis


Ivey is able to consistently deliver successful custom programs because of our long, rich, deeply entrenched relationships with corporate Canada


More than a “service ” provider: we act in an advisory, management consulting, and executive coaching capacity with our corporate partners


    “Municipal CFOs and Treasurers are leading and managing budgets, relationships and strategic partnerships during uncertain and challenging times. Engaging stakeholders, influencing and communicating with Council is a critical part of the role. As such, presenting just the numbers is not enough. To ensure success, it is important to tell the story linked to a bigger picture – strategic goals and outcomes. AMCTO’s Executive Municipal Leadership Program is designed to teach you how to use data and storytelling for effective presentations, to influence decisions and to equip you with the tools for presenting compelling narratives. You will be challenged by colleagues from the industry and bring yourself to the next level of knowledge, skills and preparedness.”
