Great to be back!

After a fantastic year away – it is so great to be back at Rotman! In some ways it seems like no time has passed at all, but in others I certainly feel like I’ve been away forever.  I’m very excited to be back in the Admissions world and to dive into recruiting for 2016.  I’ve truly missed the energy of this place – our wonderful students, inspiring faculty and my amazing team of colleagues here at the School.

The building was full of excited international students this morning as my first day returning from maternity leave luckily fell on our first day of international student orientation.  It has been a real pleasure to jump back into the admissions team and meet the bright, talented, and accomplished students that will comprise the Rotman class of 2017!  The Recruitment and Admissions team has done an outstanding job putting together a diverse, accomplished and truly impressive group and I look forward to getting to know the class over the next few weeks as International Orientation, Pre-Program and Orientation events – continuing tonight at our first official reception event for the incoming class. Admittedly it feels a little bizarre to be back in my role as Director of Admissions knowing little about the individuals starting at Rotman this fall but it is going to be so much fun learning about each student joining the Rotman community.

We will be introducing the application for our 2016 intake shortly – stay tuned for key dates and details!

  1. Hi Niki,

    Nice to hear that you are back.

    Niki, I am Parul Verma from New Delhi, India. I am targeting 2 year Full Time MBA at Rotman for the 2016 intake. I have a couple of questions that I wanted to ask.

    First, I believe Rotman School of Management (University of Toronto) will participate in the upcoming THE MBA TOUR scheduled for 30-Sep-2015 at Leela Kempinski Gurgaon, Haryana, India (categorized under DELHI region).

    As I live in New Delhi, I have registered myself for the event and will also schedule a meet up. Can you please share the details of the Rotman representatives who will be present at the event so that I can touch base with them in advance?

    Second, I have created an account for the application process, but I am facing an issue related to the essays. While filling the application, on selecting the year for admission as 2016, previous year’s essays are getting displayed. Please correct me if I am wrong. If in case this issue is present, then can you please confirm me when will the essays be out for the 2016 intake?

    Thank you.

  2. Hi Niki,

    Thanks a lot for your prompt reply. I will surely keep a check on the above shared url. Also, I will schedule a meet up @ THE MBA TOUR for Rotman and will try to gain as much as I can from it.

    I hope to be in touch with you throughout the application process.

    Warm Regards,
    Parul Verma
