  • Consulting (r)


Translating your business skills into career success requires the ability to effectively present your ideas.  

By second year, Rotman MBA students are able to analyze complex business problems and make astute recommendations. However, in organizations that is not enough because good recommendations go unacknowledged unless presented well.  While students have invested in their abilities to solve businesses problems, their career success depends on the ability to effectively communicate those ideas in business settings.

This is for students who are interested in honing their presentation skills including the abilities to synthesis information into coherent and arguments, building supporting logics and mastering professional presentations.
