It’s that time of year! The leaves are turning, the mercury is dropping, and the U of T campus is buzzing once again. It’s fall, which means our annual Rotman Open House is just around the corner!
On Saturday, October 18th, Rotman opens its doors for the biggest and most exciting school-wide event of the year. A captivating exhibit of all Rotman programs, including the Morning & Evening MBA and Master of Finance part-time programs designed for working professionals, the Open House provides prospective students with the opportunity to meet staff, students, alumni, and faculty in an interactive showcase of everything Rotman. Featured this year will be welcoming remarks by our new Dean, Tiff Macklem, a keynote address by Associate Dean Mihnea Moldoveanu and a jam-packed agenda of sample classes, panel discussions, and info sessions. We’ll have trading simulations running all day in the BMO Trading Lab. If that’s not enough to get you to Rotman on a crisp fall day, wait ‘til you hear this: you’ll have a chance to take a class- a real, live, Rotman class with real, live, Rotman instructors. Maja Djikic, Director of the Self Development Lab will give you a 45-minute intro to a Self-Management module that will leave you wanting more. You’ll have a blast with Mark Leung, Director, DesignWorks at his interactive class on Business Design, and Associate Prof. Walid Hejazi will tell you about the ROI on your MBA. Professors Avi Goldfarb and Dilip Soman will deliver an excellent session on Managing Customer Value. Associate Prof. Bernardo Blum will give you a sneak peek into Rotman’s unique approach to model-based decision making. Prof. Alexander Dyck will teach a finance class entitled “Does Private Equity Create Value?”, and Associate Prof. Tiziana Casciaro will deliver “Competent Jerks, Lovable Fools and Social Networks in the Workplace”. Intrigued? Stay tuned for our full agenda.
The Admissions team will be in attendance and available to answer any questions about the program, the school, and the application process. Drop by our table outside Desautels Hall to speak to one of them. Our joint programs will also have an information table, and Quantum Test Prep, The Princeton Review, and U of T’s School of Continuing Studies will have advice for those who haven’t written their GMAT yet. If you have questions about financial aid or our loan programs, that’ll be available too.
The Open House is a must-attend for anyone considering Rotman. Don’t miss out on the chance to experience the School first-hand. Whether you stop by for an hour or the whole day, it will be worth your while.
Register now and we’ll see you on October 18!
