Our students are the heart and soul of Rotman, embodying the spirit of curiosity, resilience and passion for learning. They come from diverse backgrounds, bringing a wealth of experiences and perspectives that enrich our learning community. In this Impact Report, you will find inspiring stories of their personal growth, academic achievements, and the profound impact they have made both during their time with us and in their subsequent professional endeavours.

These stories offer a glimpse into the vibrant tapestry of student life at our business school. From participating in cutting-edge research projects and immersive internships to engaging in leadership development programs and extracurricular activities, our students seize every opportunity to expand their horizons and push their boundaries. Through these experiences, they cultivate the skills, knowledge and networks that empower them to become the next generation of leaders and change-makers.
