Student Clubs

Get Involved

The range and diversity of student clubs available in the MBA program is remarkable. Whether your goal is to grow your network, build your skills, or just enjoy a good time with your classmates, we have a Rotman club for you.

Explore your potential

Clubs form an integral part of the Rotman MBA experience. Industry clubs play a key role in your career exploration and success, while social and cultural clubs allow you to build a network and explore your interests outside of class. Led and organized by Rotman students themselves, the clubs run a rich calendar of social and networking events, case competitions and guest speakers.

The best part of student life at Rotman is that it’s largely led and organized by Rotman MBA students themselves. Whether you are organizing an international case competition, pitching a fundraiser to a potential donor, or want to learn more about what makes a great Scotch, there is no better way to build your real-life skills and engage your personal interests than by getting involved in our student clubs.

The social, networking and career-building activities of the student clubs are an essential part of the MBA experience.

The Graduate Business Council (GBC) is the recognized governing student body for MBA programs at the Rotman School. By joining the GBC, you'll become part of a group of students who are passionate about creating a strong and energized Rotman community, and who work hard to bring about activities and initiatives that enhance the Rotman MBA experience.

As a first year Rotman student, student clubs will help you network with your peers and meet others who share your interests. In your second year, you'll have the opportunity to assume an executive position with a club or the GBC to gain valuable real-world leadership experience outside of the classroom. 

The social, networking and career-building activities centred around the student clubs at Rotman are an essential part of the MBA experience. Many students credit their career success with the interview preparation skills and alumni connections they gained access through their participation in clubs like the Rotman Finance Association (RFA) and Management Consulting Association (MCA). Whatever your interest, there’s a Rotman club for you – and if not, you can create one! For a complete club listing available at Rotman, visit the GBC clubs page:
