Leadership is changing. In an interconnected world, the future of management belongs to those who embrace an outlook that transcends limitations and crosses borders. At the Rotman School of Management, we have a history of developing leaders with global impact. We are therefore proud to partner with SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milan, Italy, to offer the Rotman-SDA Bocconi Global Executive MBA (GEMBA).
Spanning 18 months and four continents, the program will transform the way you think, network and do business internationally.
At Rotman, we look for intellectually curious individuals with high potential for leadership and professional achievement.
