Student Life

A network of high achievers

At the Rotman School, you will find yourself challenged and motivated to excel by the high calibre of your classmates — peers who will provide a lifetime network of friends and business contacts. We seek out students who have done interesting things with their lives, who have travelled, launched businesses, excelled at school and work, and sought out experiences that make for an incredibly dynamic class.

The emphasis on building relationships, group work and networking within the classroom is unique to the Rotman School. Thanks to our cohort-based system, you will be with the same classmates for the duration of your program. Outside the classroom, student clubs, case competitions and other activities will allow you to explore different career choices, expand your personal and professional network, and get the most from the Rotman experience.

The bonds of friendship and respect that you will develop with your fellow students are hard to overstate, and will provide value long past graduation.
