Happy Holidays!

Niki da SilvaHard to believe that it’s already the middle of December!  I guess it’s true when they say time flies when you are having fun.  I’ve been having a lot of fun and have actually moved into a new role at Rotman as Managing Director for the Full-Time MBA Program and enjoying diving in to run the business of the Program – a great new professional opportunity for me.  Admittedly, it has been a busy few months and I haven’t been as active as I hoped on our blog, but am excited to introduce our new Director of Admissions who will be taking over in the new year – stay tuned!

I’m already very excited about the caliber and diversity of the Rotman class of 2018 based on early applications, and very much looking forward to seeing applications in the new year.  As you know, our Round 2 deadline is January 11th – just around the corner! If you do have any questions about your application I encourage you to reach out now – the University will be closed for the holidays from December 23-January 4. We are back for one week before the deadline so will most definitely have plenty of time to assist then, but wanted to ensure we shared our holidays hours well in advance.

On behalf of the Rotman Admissions team – we hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday season! Looking for to 2016 – an exciting year of new beginnings 🙂

  1. Dear Niki,

    First of all I wish you a happy new year! I hope you had a great holiday.
    I have a few questions regarding MBA admission requirements. I’m currently studying for my bachelor’s degree in Business Economics in the Netherlands. After my bachelor’s degree I would like to follow the MBA program at the Rotman school of management. I don’t have any full time working experience but I do have part time working experience. I was wondering what kind of working experience is strongly advised and if working experience less than 2 year is accepted. Thank you.

    Best regards,


    • There is no minimum requirement but we do strongly suggest working full-time prior to embarking on the MBA. Having a competitive profile aligned with your post-MBA target industry is important, and we also want to ensure we are selecting candidates with lots to contribute to class discussions and program experience broadly. Ultimately this decision is up to each applicant – only you know when the time is right to pursue your MBA! Good luck!

  2. Dear Niki!

    I wish you and your team a great 2016!
    I submitted my Fulltime MBA application on December 31 and I hope to have some good news from Rotman as soon as possible.
    Thanks a lot.
