At Western, entrepreneurship isn’t about widgets – it’s about people.
Western Entrepreneurship harnesses the university’s collective expertise to arm the next generation of leaders with crucial entrepreneurial and leadership skills that enable them to develop great ideas that excite the world. Western and its Ivey Business School are invested in this cohesive, student-focused entrepreneurship ecosystem that brings together students, faculty and alumni.
Western Entrepreneurship builds upon a tradition of entrepreneurial thinking at Western, including the establishment of Canada’s first MBA program (1948), our launch of Canada’s first PhD program in business (1961), and QuantumShiftTM – Canada’s premier leadership program and network for the entrepreneurs driving the growth of Canada's most successful companies, founded by Ivey and KPMG.
The umbrella of Western Entrepreneurship brings together incubators, alumni mentorship, co-working space, academic excellence, commercialization and thought leadership across all our faculties and schools.
