Ivić started out at Proleter Zrenjanin, making his senior debuts in the 1994–95 season. He was transferred to Partizan in mid-1998. Over the next six years, Ivić helped the side win three championship titles and two domestic cups. He also made his UEFA Champions League debut in the 2003–04 campaign. After Saša Ilić's departure from the club in early 2004, Ivić became the team's captain. He scored a total of 64 league goals in 133 appearances with the Crno-beli.
In July 2004, Ivić signed a three-year contract with German club Borussia Mönchengladbach. He made just four league appearances and scored once in the team's 3–1 home victory over Werder Bremen, before transferring to AEK Athens in early 2005. After two and a half seasons in the Greek capital, Ivić signed with fellow Superleague club Aris Thessaloniki. He spent one year there, before switching to crosstown rivals PAOK in mid-2008. In the following four seasons, Ivić made 133 appearances and scored 24 goals in all competitions.
Ivić earned eight caps for Serbia and Montenegro between 2001 and 2004, making his debut as a substitute for Dejan Stanković in a World Cup 2002 qualifier versus Switzerland, an eventual 1–1 draw. He was previously a member of the team that represented the country at the Millennium Super Soccer Cup, winning the tournament. However, these caps are not officially recognized by FIFA.
In June 2013, Ivić started working with PAOK's under-20 team. He instantly led the side to the league title in his first year in the role. In March 2016, Ivić was appointed manager of PAOK until the end of the season, following the departure of Igor Tudor. He later won the Greek Cup in May 2017, before leaving the post the following month.
On 31 May 2018, Ivić officially took charge of Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv, penning a two-year deal with an option for a third season. Ivic won the championship with Maccabi with an enormous 31 point lead, breaking a historical record in the Israeli League, he also won the toto-cup and the Israeli Supercup.
