At Ivey, we will hone your potential and get you ready to take on not only today’s careers but careers that don’t even exist yet.

The Ivey Honors Business Administration (HBA) Program experience is unique and beyond the scope of anything offered at traditional undergraduate business schools.

Your First Two Years

Begin your undergraduate degree exploring your academic interests and finding new ones. In your first two years, you can study in any faculty at Western or another recognized university. This opportunity to learn and grow ensures you and your HBA classmates bring diverse and more experienced perspectives to your business education.

HBA 1

Your first year in the Ivey HBA Program (HBA 1) is typically your third year of university. You work with the same classmates, in the same classroom, with a dedicated faculty team. You cover the essentials of what every good manager needs to know and be able to do. Career management is also built into the curriculum to help you define your career goals and develop job search strategies to get you there.

HBA 2

In your second year at Ivey (HBA 2) you build strength from the foundational business knowledge and skills developed during your first year.
