Did you know that the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto holds strong ties on the other side of the pond? Earlier this month on May 9th, Rotman’s Master of Financial Risk Management (MFRM) made its debut in London, UK with a sample class led by none other than Professor John C. Hull, Maple Financial Professor of Derivatives and Risk Management at Rotman, and Co-Director of the Master of Financial Risk Management.
Strong financial risk management ties
Counting on our strong academic and business connections, the Rotman School of Management organized our first ever Master of Financial Risk Management sample class in London, Europe’s financial capital and one of the world’s economic powerhouses. Given his ties both in London and Toronto, Professor John Hull was our leading ambassador, taking the Rotman brand to his home country in the UK. For attendees from universities such as Imperial College London, CASS Business School and the London School of Economics, this was a unique opportunity to learn from a legend in their field. After all, it is no secret that this ‘derivatives guru’ understands deeply the credit crisis that started in 2007 and has lessons for us on how to avoid one in the future. In fact, if you liked the award-winning film The Big Short, this talk was right up your alley.
In addition, this sample class gave students a little taste of what it would be like to be an MFRM student at the Rotman School of Management. While learning the subject matter presented is invaluable, attending a sample class can expose students to the teaching styles of our faculty and the type of practical and internationally relevant skills you can expect to learn in our programs. When choosing a graduate program, it’s crucial to consider the in-class experience along with other aspects that would have an impact on your student life and ability to succeed.
Rotman’s Master of Financial Risk Management Program
At the end of this Master of Financial Risk Management sample class, students also learned about the curriculum and specific benefits of the MFRM program, an intensive 8-month Masters degree for pre-experience students with a passion for financial risk management and strong quantitative and communication skills. You can also learn about the program by visiting our website.
