On Sunday, June 22, 3 of Toronto’s Master of Finance programs got together for a friendly soccer match in honour of the World Cup. How did it all go down? It’s all a classic case of networking, friendship and collaboration.

Last year, Alexandra MacKay, Academic Director of the Rotman MFin program met with Pauline Shum, Academic Director, Schulich MFin and Sean Cleary, Academic Director, Queen’s MFin as they sometimes do. After 20 years of knowing each other, collaboration for the enrichment of the finance industry is something of a second nature to them. An MFin ETF event and the inaugural GTA CFA Master of Finance Ethics Challenge resulted from that meeting. A GTA-MFin soccer was even suggested for when the weather improved.

Long story short, the soccer field at Glendon College was booked for June 22, the pitch was made to Rotman MFin students, alumni and faculty, and in the end, 31 willing Rotman MFin soccer players (plus 10 people in the cheering section and 2 dogs) answered the call to score for school pride. MFin students and alumni spanned 6 graduating classes, connecting on a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning beyond the classroom.
