The Rotman School of Management is a part of the University of Toronto, the top university in Canada with a well-deserved global reputation for excellence in research. Rotman is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, the world’s most multicultural city (ahead of New York City and London), just steps away from the second largest financial centre in North America, and Canada’s business and cultural core. By joining the largest and most internally diverse MBA program in Canada, you will gain access to more top employers and global recruiters than any other business school in Canada.
Rotman has built a global reputation on its ambitious vision for business education. Our unique approach to problem-solving and decision-making will transform your career and your leadership potential. You can customize your MBA experience through over 100 elective courses across 16 Majors, and earn an MBA-level salary while you learn through our innovative Flexible Internship Program.
Rotman is an exceptional way to launch your career and life in Canada, as all our international graduates are eligible for a 3-year Canadian work permit. We offer generous support for women leaders, with one of the highest ratios of female candidates in business education (40% in 2017). We offer over $4 million in financial aid support, as well as the opportunity to compete for an additional $300,000 in scholarship awards through our annual Rotman Problem Solving Challenge.
