Hi, My name is Oliver, and I'm one of the lovely people that the Ivey School of Business has asked to talk to you, prospective MBA students about Ivey's Accelerated MBA program. First, I'll tell you a bit about myself. I have an undergraduate bachelor of business administration specializing in operations. I worked for almost five years in aerospace manufacturing, achieving my lean six Sigma black belt and getting to see jet engines fired up at full speed, both of which were very rewarding. Right now, I work at one of the five big Canadian banks in a process engineering team helping the banks to become as efficient as manufacturing. You might ask why I chose Ivey that comes down to five, five very good reasons. Number one on pretty much every single global rating scale Ivey is the number one-rated program in Canada. And to quote Ricky Bobby's father, if you're not, first, you're last. So why wouldn't I go to Ivey? The top rated MBA program in Canada, if I could? Number two is Ivey’s Alumni Network and the peer group. That would be a part of. Because Ivey is the number one program and obviously attracts a lot of top talent and being able to associate myself with that top talent and lean on them for advantages throughout my career with something that was very attractive to me. Number three This is an accelerated program means it only takes one year. That was extremely attractive to me. Number four. It's based in Toronto, where I work, so that made it even easier. And Number five. This is a program that you can complete while maintaining your current employment. So to conclude why I chose to go to Ivet, it's the best in Canada. It has an extremely strong alumni network, and the features of the program were such that it allowed me to continue working at my job in Toronto while completing a world class MBA. And those five reasons are why I chose the Ivey Accelerated MBA.
