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 strategy, innovation, 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.
Scholarships and fellowships: Each year, Rotman awards more than $6 million in scholarships. Candidates may be selected for the Forte Foundation Fellowship (for outstanding female candidates), Onboard (for not-for-profit boards), CityLab (for supporting urban communities), Reaching Out MBA (for LGBTQ+ and allies), and the Creative Destruction Lab Fellowship (for entrepreneurs and startups) to work directly with host organizations or ventures to tackle real challenges with real impact.
Location, location, location
Located right in the heart of downtown Toronto, the second-largest financial centre in North America after New York City, Rotman is steps away from the head offices of all five of Canada’s largest banks, top global consulting firms, and international organizations across all sectors, making it easy for students to connect face-to-face with top employers and local alumni for coffee chats.
Toronto: Consistently ranked as one of the best cities in the world to live and work, Toronto is often described as ‘the most multicultural city in the world’, ahead of New York and London. It is the fourth largest city in North America, and home to the third-largest financial, technology, health sciences, and film and television sectors in North America, making it an exceptional place for our students to learn, study and launch their careers after graduation.
An intellectual hub: Rotman takes full advantage of its strategic location by drawing on a rich pool of business and political leaders as teachers, mentors, and speakers. Each year, Rotman hosts over 100 public talks by thought leaders. Their real-world perspectives, insights, and inspiring stories have an extraordinary impact on our students, who may attend speaker events for free.
