Find out what it means to be a Rotman grad and part of a global alumni network at the New Alumni Kick-off.

New alumni kick off

Congratulations to the upcoming graduating class! You and your classmates join a global network of alumni who are using their Rotman education to change their organizations, communities and the world. But your relationship with Rotman doesn’t end when you graduate, it’s just the beginning. Our hope is that you will stay connected and maintain a lifelong relationship with the School.

In order to make the most of the Rotman network, please join the alumni team in February (dates for 2022 tbc) at the New Alumni Kick-Off. Meet fellow alumni and connect with your classmates across all programs for an evening of interactive sessions designed to help you transition from student to alumnus.

  • Continue your learning
