Location matters: Toronto and the University of Toronto
Rotman is part of the University of Toronto, Canada's top research university. And it's located in the multicultural heart of Canada’s commercial and financial capital. For these reasons and many more, the School is ideally situated to connect you to what matters.
Toronto: Canada’s business centre
Located in downtown Toronto, just blocks from the local business community, Rotman makes it easy for you to transition between work, home, and your studies. The School takes full advantage of its strategic location by drawing on a rich pool of business and political leaders as teachers, mentors and speakers.
The fourth largest city in North America, and Canada’s financial, commercial and cultural capital, Toronto is consistently ranked one of the best cities in the world in which to live. Toronto is home to the third largest financial, technology, health sciences, and film and television sectors in North America.
It’s also one of the world’s top startup ecosystems. A recent study by McKinsey concluded that the Toronto-Waterloo corridor, known as ‘Tech North’, is rapidly growing into the largest concentration of artificial intelligence, machine learning, fintech, and quantum computing startups in the world. Steps away from the university, the MaRS Discovery District hosts and supports entrepreneurial development, while U of T invests over $1 billion per year in healthcare-related innovation alone.
The University of Toronto: Canada’s top research university
Established in 1827, U of T is recognized globally as Canada’s leading research university — a reputation that will add considerable value to your Rotman MBA around the world.
With over $1 billion spent annually in biotech/medical research alone, the University of Toronto has the largest research budget in Canada. U of T is second only to Harvard University for the number of research publications cited worldwide, and has the third largest academic library in the world, after Harvard and Yale.
As a Rotman student, you are welcome everywhere on the beautiful and historic U of T campus. Once you graduate, you benefit from the global reputation of Canada's top business school and one of the world's most highly ranked universities.
