New Alumni Kick-Off

Find out what it means to be a Rotman grad and part of a global alumni network at the New Alumni Kick-off.

In less than six months you and your classmates will join a global network of alumni who are using their Rotman education to change their organizations, communities and the world. But your relationship with Rotman doesn’t end when you graduate, it’s just the beginning. Our hope is that you will stay connected and maintain a lifelong relationship with the School.

In order to make the most of the Rotman network, please join the alumni team on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the New Alumni Kick-Off. Meet over 40 of your fellow alumni and connect with your classmates across all programs for a morning of interactive sessions designed to help you transition from student to alumnus.

Discover how to:

  • Leverage your Rotman network across all programs
  • Access your alumni benefits
  • Continue your Rotman involvement

“This is a great opportunity to stay in touch with the Rotman community, meet new friends, and learn how to best utilize the alumni network for career development.”

- Rafael Soliaman (MBA ’18)
