Nothing can prepare you for Get Connected, one of the highlights of the Ivey MBA program – managing classes, extracurricular activities, interview prep and evenings at Jack’s comes close though. Get Connected is a three-day industry connect program, traditionally held in June. The incumbent class travels to Toronto to interact with business executives from leading companies in various industries and Ivey alumni working in these firms. After an early morning kick-off breakfast on Day 1, classmates disperse to attend company and industry information sessions – on Capital Markets, Consulting, and CPG, among others. Events run till late in the evening, and only the brave dare to hit the bars before turning up for the next day’s early morning event.
Here is an account of Get Connected from the eyes of Farah Kurji, MBA 2017 Candidate.
