Less and less, mainly due to the TN-1 work visa status reform a few years ago that removed financial analysts/IB. Western Ivey and Queen's Commerce has some legacy reputation here especially at EB's like Evercore, so you'll find some senior analysts and buyside associates from there, but in the last year or two, they have sent less and less kids each year, I'm talking like max 3-5 kids, whereas they used to send a 10-15, so they're semi-target at best for US recruiting now unfortunately. If u can get into a US school, then definitely take it because u receive OPT and can work in the US after graduation for a few years for simply attending a US college. 


Can confirm this isn’t true, know or at least 15 ivey students heading to the states for SA 2023. 7 people going to Evercore alone.


The exact number of kids doesn't matter. My general statement/concept still stands, which is that Canadian presence in the US is gradually diminishing due to stricter Visa policies.

If u wanna talk numbers then 15-30 is still semi-target figures. My school (Dyson/Stern/Wharton) sends 200+ kids to the street each year and a few dozen more directly to the buyside (PE/HF). Keep coping.

Not sure why you’re so pressed. Never claimed Ivey is a target on that same tier, but just wanted to correct the record to provide accurate info. Feel free to let me know how many schools outside HYPSW places kids into SLP, Evr, BX, Q and PJT RSSG.

Hope you’re doing ok after paying the 60k annual tuition to end up at the same place as an ivey student paying 8k a year lmao


Just want to clarify the record as you are both partially correct - yes, Ivey sends around 10-15 students every year to the states, but you also have to understand that many of them already have dual citizenship. The fact of the matter is banks like Q as you mentioned just don't sponsor regardless of how good of a candidate you are. US schools - even those low/middle targets still give you the accessibility even if it might be harder. All in all, Ivey has definitely gone down in US placements (just look at WIC placements, most people are heading to Big 5/CPP, and most of the globals are in Toronto). 


You’re getting ms because for some reason Canadian kids infest this site despite having less then a tenth of the us population and way less students. Ivey kids are chronically online hardos


mans is so mad cuz he’s paying 5x the tuition to end up at evercore w the ivey kids.

jokes aside: ur correct, we are NOT a target, and its becoming increasingly harder w the visa situation and economy. but to answer the question, for canadian schools for US banking, ivey is the place to be. to provide more accurate figures because i currently attend, we sent 21 to the states for SA 2024 even in this shit macro landscape for recruiting.

was talking to someone and he mentioned that broadly speaking, those who RLY wanted to go to the states were able to land it. i think this is largely true, yes we have it harder than the whartons and harvards, but if u genuinely seek it out, it works out in the end


U obviously don't seem to know shit about the US landscape prospect. First off, tons of target schools outside H/W sends kids to PJT RSSG, Qatalyst, CVP, and buyside shops including Columbia, NYU, Cornell, UChicago, UMich, etc. Second, probs half of the kids ur sending down to the states from Ivey r probs LA/SF office, not even NYC

We'll c how far ur 8k tuition gets u when on-cycle recruiting wraps around. I don't c any of ur buddies at BX, KKR, Apollo, Carlyle, or any other MF PE or HF. Keep coping and trying to justify y ur Honda is just as good as a Ferrari because "they both get u from point A to point B" which is essentially ur argument. There's a reason ur tuition is cheaper. It's simple supply and demand. 


Pretty sizeable Ivey presence at KKR actually, as well as recent BX PE placements both from Ivey and Queens (out of 6-7 total interns). + Ivey is a target for SLP. You don't know what you're talking about


Ivey and Queens and McGill I believe too are decent, Laurier/Waterloo/Schulich are semi-decent, if you're one of the top finance students in the latter three, you can clip US IB.
