Beijing Dec 13 Sunday
Shenzhen Dec 19 Saturday
A unique opportunity to “test-drive” your MBA
Ivey, a leading business school in the world renowned for over 80 years of Case Teaching
Some of you have attended Ivey’s mock case class. It sometimes is daunting to speak at a large class, but now there is an opportunity to try a smaller-format case discussion. Come and join us in Beijing and Shenzhen for a lively case discussion in the unique format of Ivey!
Ivey is Canada’s best-known business school and a world-leading business school. It earned a global reputation for its case expertise, and alums always applaud Ivey’s unique, intense culture rooted in its commitment to case study. At Ivey, we believe case study is the best way to develop business leaders -- it focuses not just on theories and skills, but on how to make business decisions in uncertain and complex environments.
To participate in this discussion, you need to read and analyze a real case in advance.
To register for this session, you should be fluent in English, have no less than 2 years’ solid work experience, and be preparing to apply for a world-leading MBA program overseas.
This is by-invitation only and has limited seats. We encourage you to register immediately, and we will send you invitation shortly.
The Beijing session will be moderated by Professor Jim Hatch and the Shenzhen session by Clara Hu, Ivey’s admission lead in China and an Ivey grad.
Date: December 13 Sunday
Venue: Convenient downtown location (Details will be sent to you in the invitation letter)
