Toronto Rotman School of Management MBA Essays

In addition to the Rotman MBA deadlines, the business school has also unveiled its newest essay questions. A new statement from the school reads:

“The full-time MBA program at the University of Toronto, Rotman School of Management attracts top talent from an incredibly diverse range of professional and academic backgrounds around the world so we don’t really have a typical candidate. In admissions, we look for intellectual horsepower, experience, and impact, communication, and presence.

Beyond that, our admitted students stand out by doing interesting things with their personal and professional lives — something we describe as the ‘spike factor’; what are the things that you have done in your life that demonstrate Passion/ Grit/ Resilience/ Innovation/ Drive/ Ambition and more? This can cross all or any aspects of life outside of work – hobbies, volunteerism, awards, entrepreneurial ventures, sports and the arts. We believe that exposure to a rich diversity of viewpoints makes for a superior learning experience, and pride ourselves on building a diverse class of exceptional individuals who will go on to make the School proud as professionals and alumni.”

Rotman’s unique essay asks applicants to provide “1-3 of your ‘spikiest’ pictures” to the supplemental item section, which you can find here. With the photos, applicants must “illustrate your ‘spike factor,’” with up to 1000 words.

Applicants must also “list 3-5 attributes or characteristics that best describe you, with one word per piece.”

Lastly, applicants must provide a video and time-written response, which is as follows:

“The video interview component is a required part of Rotman Admissions process designed to give all candidates guaranteed “face time” with the Admissions Committee and showcase your personality, characteristics, passions, and values.

You will have an opportunity to test the technology, and then will be asked two taped questions, followed by a real-time written response (no video with this component.) Both questions are personality/values based and are designed to be answered without any advanced preparation and will only take a few minutes to complete. The written question is designed to simulate the typical email communications you will create as a Rotman MBA student. After completing your questions, you will receive a confirmation email and unique URL to input into this section of the application and complete the live component. Good luck and have fun with the process!”

What’s It Like to Earn Your MBA in Canada at McMaster’s DeGroote School?

Hockey, maple syrup, the friendliest people you’ll ever meet … all reasons to love Canada. But have you ever thought to earn your MBA in Canada?

More often than not, when MBA candidates think about where to go to school, they tend to scour the U.S. for the best programs.

Canadian MBA programs offer many of the same opportunities as U.S. programs, but with some surprising benefits. To get a better idea of what it’s like to go to school in Canada, we talked to Bach Dang, a ’19 MBA student at McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Business. Continue reading…
