A consortium of major corporations and top business schools work together to launch women into fulfilling, significant careers through access to business education, opportunities, and a community of successful women.
Over the last 2 years, 30+ Forte Fellows have been awarded to women at Rotman, totalling to more than $1M in total scholarships.

Other women, such as Evening MBA Ambassador Emilie De Caen (MBA’21) shared why she decided to chose Rotman.
“Whenever I think Rotman, I think leadership. That’s ultimately one of the reasons why I think you should come to Rotman: if you want to become a manager, if you want to be at the forefront of your field, Rotman is where you belong. One of the things that I see every day in the halls is Rotman’s slogan, ‘Here’s Where It Changes,’ and I think: this is where people are inspired, this is where creative thinking happens, this is where team players come together to make the future a better one and succeed in their fields.”
If these words resonate with you, Rotman is the place to be.
