Two letter of recommendation are needed from individuals who are well acquainted with your performance in a work setting, preferably from a direct supervisor or manager.

The recommendations provide us with third-party confirmation and insights into your achievements. You should choose recommenders who will support your candidacy with concrete examples of performance and impact on the organisation.

» Questions from the on-line recommendation form are shown below and are for reference only.

» The Recommendations must be submitted on-line, not via hard-copy responses to these questions.

» You must register your recommenders, who then use the confidential on-line link they receive directly from our on-line application. Your recommenders also have the option to upload an additional document if desired.

» If a recommender does not write in English, the uploaded document can be a certified translation of their comments. Only two recommendations are accepted per application. » Ideally your recommendations should be from current direct supervisors or managers who are best equipped to answer questions about your leadership, communication, teamwork, initiative and other skills.

» If you are unable to ask a current supervisor for a recommendation, then you can ask a former boss, a manager from another department, or a consultant or client who knows you well enough to answer the questions insightfully.

» Academic contacts are not usually able to provide information on management potential. Similarly, family members, peers and friends are not appropriate as recommenders. » Your recommenders’ own titles or positions are not important – instead, their ability to comment knowledgeably and specifically about you is vital. » Letters from contacts (including alumni) who do not know you well cannot add value like direct supervisors can.

» Online recommendations are due by the application deadline.

Ivy understand the material they deal with, and deal only with the material they understand. Not once did a member of Ivy counsel me regarding a subject on which he was not an expert. When they wanted to be two hundred percent sure about something, they would immediately operate a lineup which included dozens of consultants and acquaintances in order to thoroughly investigate every last detail of the subject at hand. It was experiencing daily professionalism, every hour and every minute, in every issue and matter at hand.

Ivy take their profession very seriously and put into it everything they have. Like the basketball player who knows any minute on the court could be his last, they never allow themselves to waver, to quit in the middle, to lose focus or work only when they “feel like it”.
