The Rotman MBA: What You Need To Know

The biggest MBA in Canada, with 275 for the full-time Class of 2024, is located in the buzzing downtown of multicultural Toronto, one of the world’s fintech hubs and North America’s biggest banking center after New York. Rotman has a powerful network of mentors, professors and leaders available that offer students a diverse and inclusive environment.

The Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto has about half Canadians and half foreign students, many of whom are looking for a passport to a job in Canada. Students in the 16-month course overlap with both the previous and the next cohort, meaning that they get the chance to connect with over 1,000 MBA candidates.

Rotman has a reputation for research, and the academic rigor spills over into the “labs” where students get cutting-edge instruction. For example, there are Finance, Management Data and Analytics, Self-Development, and Leadership Development labs.

As the Rotman School’s flagship offering, the Full-Time MBA offers a core curriculum that brings problem solving and creative methodology together to explore the dynamics of business. Students can customize their experience by selecting courses in 15 specialization areas, such as Consulting, Global Management, Leadership and Change Management, and Social Impact and Sustainability. Experiential learning components of the degree include consulting experiences, study trips, and internships.

To expose students and allow them to benefit from the diverse backgrounds represented within their class, students are placed in a project team based on their academic background, industry experience, and place of origin.

Rotman’s Full-Time MBA includes a four-month internship, and students can take 12 of 100-plus electives. They can also attend an exchange to one of 28 partner universities in 17 countries and take study tours to Africa, Asia, Australia, North and South America, Europe, and the Middle East. Rotman grads say traveling abroad with their peers is a truly transformational experience.

There are a wide array of labs, centres and institutes available to incubate ideas and allow for further exploration such as the Creative Destruction Lab, the Leadership Development Lab, the Behavioral Economics in Action center, the Business Design Initiative and the Institute for Gender and the Economy.

More about University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management:

The Rotman School of Management is part of the University of Toronto, a global centre of research and academic excellence. Established in 1827, U of T is widely recognized worldwide as Canada’s top university — a reputation that adds tremendous value to your Rotman MBA.

The Rotman Advantage

As the largest Full-Time MBA program in Canada, Rotman is the top business school in Canada for global firms wishing to hire MBA students, helping to launch the careers of more graduates than the next three top Canadian business schools combined. Leading companies like McKinsey, World Bank Group, Google, IBM, P&G, IDEO, and Microsoft recruit at Rotman. While known for its strengths in finance and consulting, Rotman is making bold strides in placing its graduates into the newest frontiers of healthcare strategyinnovation, and entrepreneurship and venture capital.

Innovation and entrepreneurship hub: Toronto is ranked as one of the world’s best startup ecosystems. A recent study by McKinsey recognized the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor as the fastest-growing tech sector in North America, with the largest concentration of artificial intelligence, machine learning, fintech, and quantum computing start-ups in the world. U of T invests over $1.1 billion per year in research, including a $100-million commitment to build a new complex dedicated to AI and biomedicine, $25 million in funding from the Government of Canada to support the Creative Destruction Lab founded at Rotman, and supports entrepreneurial development in partnership with the MaRS Discovery District.

Diversity and inclusion: The Full-Time MBA class at Rotman is not only the largest of any business school in Canada, but it is also the most diverse. In our expected incoming Class of 2021, 58% of our students are international and 45% are women, representing 39 countries, who will join a network of over 17,500 alumni in more than 90 countries. Through Rotman’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Office (EDIO), a dedicated ED&I Director, our Community of Practice council, and ongoing events like Culture Eats and Rotman On Inclusion Week, we ensure an environment that is safe, welcoming, and respectful to all.
