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."
