Growth Spurt in the Full Time MBA program at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management Attracts Students and International Recruiters.

October 29, 2013

Toronto – The largest and most diverse Full Time MBA class in the history of the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management was admitted this fall. This year’s class has 350 students enrolled with an average GMAT score of 674, a significant increase from only two years ago when the class had 265 students and an average GMAT score of 661. The increase is a continuation of a growth plan that will see the class size increase to an annual intake of 400 students.
 
The class, which will graduate in 2015, is 49% international with students coming from 33 countries. There are 103 women in the class (29%) and students have an average of 4.2 years of work experience. 
 
“We are very proud that once again, this year’s incoming Rotman class is the largest, smartest, and most international MBA class in Canada,” says Prof. Mihnea Moldoveanu Associate Dean, Full Time MBA Program.
 
“As a direct result of the increasing size and quality of the Rotman MBA class over the past two years, we’ve experienced a huge spike in the demand for Rotman graduates from top global employers, many of which have decided to add Rotman as the only Canadian school that they recruit MBA students from. In the last 24 months, we’ve added global companies including Microsoft, Huawei, GE, Google, Fedex, Nike, Estee Lauder, Lululemon, Target, and Siemens,” adds Kevin Frey, Managing Director, Full Time MBA program.
 
The strong demand for a Rotman MBA demonstrates that candidates who are seeking an MBA value the School’s unique approach to business education. Integrative Thinking is the School’s educational platform for developing problem solvers, who synthesize and engage with different perspectives, theories, and models in real time, to create superior solutions.  In addition to attracting some of the best MBA candidates, this approach is also attracting some of the world’s leading corporate recruiters. 
 
Further information on all of the MBA programs offered at the Rotman School is online.
