An intellectual hub

At Rotman, you will gain exposure to some of the world's leading business thinkers. In the classroom, our top-ranked faculty will give you access to the latest research before it filters into consulting firms and major corporations. Outside the classroom, some of the greatest minds in business share their insights at conferences, seminars and speaker series, and in articles for Rotman magazine.

Intellectual Capital ranking

At the Rotman School, we place a premium on original thinking and rigorous scholarship. In the classroom, our top-ranked professors share the knowledge they have gained from years of experience in both business and academia. Rotman has strategically invested in hiring faculty members who publish influential research in their fields. Learning from industry-shaping individuals raises the level of classroom debate and makes a significant difference in our students' educational experience.

Research Impact

Rotman is one of eight business schools that the Financial Times ranks top ten for both faculty research and PhD program quality. This puts us in an elite tier of institutions — alongside Harvard, Wharton, Berkeley, Stern, Stanford, Booth and Kellogg — that take the lead in the creation of business knowledge. The School received further recognition for its commitment to pioneering research when Businessweek ranked Rotman #1 for intellectual capital among business schools outside the U.S.
