Rotman School of Management – University of Toronto


The Rotman School’s history in business education goes back to 1901, when a diploma program in Commerce was established at the University of Toronto. The School of Business became a faculty in 1972, and was renamed in honor of graduate and donor Joseph L. Rotman in 1995. Since then, the school has quadrupled its endowment, and tripled its physical footprint, its faculty and its student body. As one of the top-ranked business schools in Canada, Rotman offers a variety of formats, including full-time, part-time or executive or Global Executive MBA programs.
