Highlight of Rotman experience?

"The two-month Rotman Risk Management Project was, without a doubt, the most important phase of the program.  The project provided me with the opportunity to closely witness how the most recent important developments in the financial sector unfold within a large financial institution, to exercise my knowledge, develop a skill-set and evaluate my abilities and interest for a targeted career."

How has the program helped your career?

"I was fortunate enough to land my job right after finishing the Rotman Risk Management project. One of my first projects was similar to an assignment I had completed in the MFRM program. It is just one example of how MFRM keeps you relevant to what goes on in the real world."

Prior Education: Economics & Finance- University of London International Programmes 

Why did you decide to study the Master of Financial Risk Management program?

"I decided to study the MFRM program because I wanted a career in the field of risk management as it is a crucial area in any industry. Without proper risk management any firm could suffer losses. The MFRM program allows you to specialize in all types of risks with a practical experience component which enables you to tackle real world problems.”

Highlight of Rotman experience?

"There were a number of highlights:

Course colleagues - Coming from Sri Lanka, I understood the true value of diversity when myself and students from other countries are present in one class.

Course experience - The course helped me to be stronger in both quantitative and qualitative aspects as it involves coding, report writing and presentations for assignments. This made me an all-rounder.

Building a network - The program also focuses on other events which helps you to build your professional network rather than focusing only on academic learning. This would come in handy when you start to apply for jobs in your final semester. The faculty will also emphasize on the importance of networking from day one of the program."
