Instructors

We are currently conducting selection process of instructors for 2020 LEADER Project.

All instructors for the LEADER Project are trained by Ivey’s unique case method of teaching, and use a curriculum built from world-class case studies written at Ivey. Renowned for its case-based learning method, Ivey is one of the two most important producers of business cases in the world alongside Harvard.
