First-Year Full Time MBA Term 4 Electives

General Information

All Term 4 Spring 2022 courses will be delivered IN PERSON with the exception of RSM2008 Creative Destruction Lab Introduction which is an online course.

Full-Time MBA students are required to complete three elective courses (1.5 credit weight) in Term 4 of their first year. These electives are considered separately from the broader MBA elective courses taken in the second year of the program.

You may use this optional form to plan out your courses.

Course Packages

Course Packages for all first year core courses (excluding the first-year electives) are included in the ancillary fees for all students enrolled in a Rotman MBA degree program. During the electives phrase (i.e. Term 4 of your first year and the entire second year), course packages are not included in the program fees.

Term 4 Electives Schedule

Condensed Format (Off-Cycle) Courses

In addition to the regular six-week term, some first year elective courses may be offered in condensed format, such as four full days or weekends only. Should students decide to enroll in a course offered in a condensed format, they should be prepared to commit a significant amount of out-of-class time to the readings, daily deliverables, group meetings, etc. Please consider commitments and make appropriate decisions about the ability to be fully engaged in this type of course. Should students anticipate any absences, drop the course by the term deadline and replace it with another one that will fit their schedule.

Electives Schedule

  • Term 4: March 7 – April 14, 2022
  • Final Exam Period: April 18-26, 2022

Term 4 Electives course schedule runs four to six weeks long, followed by a final exam period. All 2000-level courses are elective courses.

In Term 4, students take RSM1222HS – Managerial Accounting, plus three electives.

Important: Check Quercus page for final deliverable details

Students must not make any travel plans prior to April 27, 2022. A final exam could be at any time during the final exam period and not necessarily the same weekend/time as regular class.

Area Specializations and Majors

First-Year Elective courses are applicable to the Area Specializations and Majors.

Electives Course Selection and Enrolment

Course Match

The Rotman School of Management has implemented an electives enrolment system for all Full-Time and Morning and Evening MBA students: Course Match.

Developed at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, Course Match acts on students’ behalf to get the best possible schedule, given their relative preferences. Course Match maximizes student satisfaction; optimizes allocation of seats; and eliminates incentives to strategize—and the worry that others will gain an advantage. Course Match is time-efficient, streamlining course selection into a single round. Using sophisticated, tested algorithms, Course Match establishes a student’s best schedule given their preferences.

Course Match works differently from what students might have seen before. Students may submit their preferences at any point during the enrolment window; there is no advantage to doing so immediately. Students should, however, ensure they submit their preferences before enrolment closes.

Information on how to use Course Match to enrol in electives is available in the Course Match section of the general MBA Electives Course Selection and Enrolment page.

Wait Lists and Course Add/Drop

Once students receive their schedule for Term 4, they may decide to make a change via the Add/Drop website on the Rotman HUB.

Course Match does not automatically generate wait lists, so we will be managing this process via the Add/Drop website in two phases to achieve maximum fairness and student satisfaction.

Information on using the Add/Drop Request and Wait List Site is available on the general MBA Electives Course Selection and Enrolment page.

Second-Year Electives

The second year of the Full-Time MBA program begins after Term 4, typically in the summer. Students who have completed the core the first-year courses can begin enrolling into Second-Year Electives, starting with Rotman’s Summer Intensive Term. The MBA Electives Guide provides full details and instructions of this phase of the program.
