Master business fundamentals and fulfill your potential in Canada's leading MBA program.
First Year: Foundations
Beginning in September, the first year of the program is divided into four core terms that are designed to introduce and reinforce our unique approach to problem solving and decision-making, and are focused on building your MBA toolkit in the major functional areas of business. The final term beginning in March is supported by three elective courses of your choice, which you may wish to use to specialize and prepare further for your internship placement.
Self-Development Lab (SDL)
The Self-Development Lab (SDL) has been carefully designed to give you highly personalized feedback on your behavioural performance, communication style, and personal presence through a series of intensive, individual coaching sessions and small group workshops.
Our Flexible Internship program* offers three internship periods after your first year: May-August, September-December, and January-April.
Second Year: Choosing a Direction
The second year at Rotman is all about choice. You can specialize in 1 of 15 MBA majors, or customize your MBA experience by taking courses from a broad range of over 100 elective courses.
Model-Based Decision Making in Practice (Capstone Course)
Unique to Rotman, the Capstone Course allows you to apply your modelling and problem solving skills to business problems that corporations are currently facing. Working directly with companies and raw data, you analyze a messy business predicament and develop strategic recommendations to present to the organization's executives.
Businesses operate within a complex environment of legal, ethical and governance-related issues. This course focuses on the role that managers play in not only recognizing these issues, but also in resolving them effectively and efficiently.
