History of the Rotman School

The Rotman School's history of transforming business education goes back to 1901, when a diploma program in Commerce was established at the University of Toronto. The School of Business became a faculty in 1972, and was renamed in honour of graduate and donor Joseph L. Rotman in 1995. Over the past 15 years, the School has quadrupled its endowment, and tripled its physical footprint, its faculty and its student body.
