Ivey Business School (Ivey) is a business school of the University of Western Ontario, a research-intensive university located in London, Ontario, Canada. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Ivey has the best full-time MBA program outside of the United States.

Ivey offers full-time undergraduate (HBA), MBA, MSc, and PhD programs and also maintains two teaching facilities in Toronto and Hong Kong for its EMBA and Executive Education programs. As one of the oldest business schools in Canada, Ivey is also accredited with establishing the nation's first MBA and PhD program in Business.

The first business degrees were granted at the University of Western Ontario in 1923. The business school was officially created in 1950, when Western University created a separate faculty as the School of Business Administration. In 1995, the school was renamed the Richard Ivey School of Business after an $11 million donation by the Richard M. Ivey family. The school is named after Richard G. Ivey (father of Richard M. Ivey). In 1998, Ivey was the first North American business school to open a campus in Hong Kong offering an Executive MBA program at the Cheng Yu Tung Management Institute. Ivey's current dean is Bob Kennedy, with a full-time faculty of 98 plus 11 lecturers.

In 2013, the School abbreviated its name to "Ivey Business School" and updated its visual identity. The legal name of the Faculty of Business at Western University, however, remains Richard Ivey School of Business.
