Testing your skills and knowledge in real-time
Rotman students both participate in international case competitions as well as organize our own. The LENs competition, run by the photography club, is for students, staff and faculty, and has supplied many of the fantastic photos on the Rotman site. The Rotman International Trading Competition and the Rotman Design Challenge are the two largest the school undertakes. Competitions deepen the school experience and test knowledge in real-time.
The preparation and intensity of the work involved in either participating in or running a case competition cannot be under-estimated but the rewards are far-reaching. Being together with students from all over the world and testing your capability is a fantastic concept. These real-world simulations of market conditions prepare students for the competitive world of global business.
The Graduate Business Council, or GBC, who runs student government at Rotman, has posted an extensive list of internal and external case competitions students can choose to become involved with. Our world reknowned Rotman International Trading Competition is considered to be the finest collegeiate trading competition in the world, taking advantage of proprietary Rotman software developed to closely mimic aspects of real world markets. And finally the Rotman Design Challenge, run by the Business Design Club, brings together art schools and business students to use the tools of design to solve complex business problems.
