The Ivey Advanced Entry Opportunity (AEO) extends conditional, pre-admission status to the HBA program to exceptional secondary school students. Ivey AEO applicants are assessed on their academic record and demonstrated leadership in extracurricular activities, community involvement, and work experience. Ivey AEO status is only available to students who choose to study at Western or one of the affiliated university colleges (in a faculty of their choice) for their first two years of university.

Students must first be admitted to Western or one of the affiliated university colleges before being offered Ivey AEO status. Applicants are notified separately from the Registrar's Office concerning their admission to first year.

Approximately 2/3 of the Ivey HBA class are formerly Ivey AEOs, the remaining 1/3 are students from Western and other universities who develop an interest in business during their first two years of study.
Students interested in the Ivey AEO apply to Western or one of the affiliated university colleges on the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) form. They must also apply separately to the Richard Ivey School of Business. The Ivey AEO application is only available on-line at . There is an application fee payable to the Ivey Business School. Please refer to for more information.

Both applications are due by the OUAC application deadline in January.

A number of students have emailed their university counsellor to ask about how to fill out the “Courses” section of the Ivey AEO application. Students do not have to enter all their courses, as these are available from the OUAC database. The information Ivey wants reported in this section is all the Grade 12 math courses you have completed or are currently completing AND any courses you have taken outside UCC. Each course must be entered individually.
