The Leadership Development Program: An Integral Piece of the Executive MBAs at Rotman

We hear again and again from students and alumni that one of their top reasons for choosing Rotman is our expertise in leadership training. Being a great leader and being a great manager are two very different pieces. We take pride in helping managers and executives become powerful leaders using a personal approach. With that in mind, we sat down with Professor Scott Rutherford who is truly an expert in leadership training.

Prof. Rutherford teaches courses in leadership and management consulting, business problem solving and integrative thinking as well as working within . Additionally, he works with McKinsey & Company and their clients on topics such as Leadership Development and Top Team Strategy & Alignment. But one piece we were particularly interested in was Rotman’s Leadership Development Program, which is available to students in Rotman’s Executive MBA programs: the One-year Executive MBA, the Global Executive MBA and the new Global Executive MBA for Healthcare and the Life Sciences.

Rotman: Tell us about the Leadership Development Program.

Rutherford: The Leadership Development Program at Rotman provides some important connective-tissue between curricular and co-curricular offerings. It helps students leverage their concurrent work experiences and integrate what they are learning into a coherent, informed and intentional journey of professional and personal development.

Rutherford: The work of the program is spread across the entire Executive MBA experience, but the cornerstone of the program is a two day, offsite residential Leadership Retreat that helps to catalyze and accelerate the transformational leadership development journey that the students have embarked upon.

Rotman: What kind of impact can students expect as an outcome of the program?

Rutherford: Executive MBA students will learn an amazing number of new and valuable ideas and concepts, and also practice new skills. The real impact of the Leadership Development Program extends these new ways of thinking and doing into new ways of being. They learn new ways of showing up in the room and in the world.

Rutherford: We encourage students to step back from their success so far in life, take stock, and give themselves permission to step into a new sense of professional identity and become more the leader that they aspire to become.

Rotman: How does the Leadership Development Program tie back into everything else students will learn during their Executive MBA?

Rutherford:  In a way, everything students will do during their Executive MBA experience at Rotman will be part of their Leadership Development Program. That is, one definition of leadership is the ability to bring about a desired future for oneself and others. Therefore at the very beginning of their Rotman experience, we ask students to imagine and articulate their desired future as a result of this period of intense work and study at this point in their lives.

Rutherford: The rest of the Leadership Development Program, and indeed the MBA itself, is focused on helping students bring about their desired future by offering new ways of thinking, acting and being. We do that by providing rich learning and experiences with regular developmental feedback and, most importantly, supporting the active co-development of the entire cohort through sharing of experiences, challenges and successes.

Rotman: You’ve been running the Leadership Development Program for a few years now. Can you tell us about some of the tangible changes you’ve seen in students and alumni?

Rutherford: The tangible changes we’ve seen to date from this program include accelerated career progression, successful transitions to new regions, countries and industries, and many other key indicators of professional growth and development.

Rutherford: I’m particularly proud of those students that have extended their leadership development success from the professional space into their broader ‘life’ space, and feel in a much better place not just at work, but at home and in other life pursuits. I believe these students are now more inspiring to others by becoming more inspired themselves.

How a GEMBA student went from digital marketing to big picture strategy

Jean George hadn’t thought she would earn an MBA. She became more exposed to the idea when her brother was working on his own MBA applications. She was happy for him but at that point she was not entirely sure why he thought it was necessary – he was already an engineer with a busy consulting schedule. “Watching my brother embrace change forced me to analyze my own professional life.  I had become very routine and I was a bit too comfortable. Looking back, I was definitely bored,” she said.

Three months later she learned about the global MBA from her now fellow classmate John Thomas, changed her mind about pursuing an MBA and entered Rotman’s Global Executive MBA program. “I had no idea that an MBA could be served in this format,” she said.  The ability to work and take classes in different countries around the world were key factors that convinced her to go back to school.  Jean, who had worked as a digital marketing consultant, had picked up a client in Dubai. “I wanted to do more of that type of work,” she explained. “I actually asked my client how I could get more engagements like that one either within Dubai or other markets and they flat-out said an MBA would be helpful because it translates across all countries. Everyone understands what an MBA is.”

Going back to school years after her undergrad was daunting, but Jean quickly discovered that this was the best possible time for a change. “I definitely appreciate it more. The last time I was in school I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. Now I know where I’m going to use stats, I understand how valuable economics is. I can respect finance and accounting because I’ve actually used them.” Between working full time for Rotman’s Creative Destruction Lab and attending classes across five continents, her schedule is packed full. “Life doesn’t give you a break, that’s not how it works. I prefer working and being in school because I’ve actually taken things directly from class and then applied them right away. It really reinforces the learning. It forces you to change your perspective.”

Getting too comfortable is something Jean wants to avoid. “I got to a point with digital marketing where I felt I couldn’t learn anything else. I wasn’t challenged and I stopped growing. Now I’ve been very humbled by the fact that there’s a lot I don’t know.”

In fact, that’s part of why Jean decided to apply for the Global Executive MBA rather than any of the other programs offered at the School. “I had travelled a lot personally, but that doesn’t mean you know an area from a business standpoint. I’ve been to some of the module destinations previously on vacation, but going there for school was a totally different experience. I got to see things and learn things I probably wouldn’t have looked for otherwise.”

One of the most valuable aspects of the Global Executive MBA are the people you meet in your class.  “I have been able learn just as much, if not more from my peers as some of the classes.  Doing an MBA you are able to connect with individuals you may have never come across on your own.  One of the courses, capstone, emphasized this action of connecting with individuals outside your direct network.” The capstone project involves applying what you’ve learned in your MBA to a real work problem. Jean’s class was asked to interview individuals based on the topic they were assigned.

“The topic my group had was AI, and I had interviewed 3 individuals. From those conversations I realized the importance of AI and definitely wanted to work in the space,” Jean said. “I didn’t know a lot about artificial intelligence, but I realized it was going to impact our society and the job market. And I thought how am I going to ride this change in terms of the skillset that I can provide? I’m not an engineer or a coder.”

Daniel Mulet, the Associate Director from the Creative Destruction Lab, worked in the field and was one of the individuals she interviewed.  After their conversation he suggested she meet their team, and not long after she became their Marketing Manager. “I’m happy to see that I do have a place in the tech sector. Being an entrepreneur, I like the start up space. It’s a little bit messy, the borders are not very well-defined, but I enjoy it.  I’m happy to know that there’s a space for someone like me who isn’t an engineer. I’ve been able make a change in my line of work before graduating. That’s a good feeling.” This all came about by having a thirty minute conversation with someone outside of my network.

We asked Jean if she had any advice for people considering applying to the Global Executive MBA. “You will really get to know yourself.  Throughout the program you are continually put in ambiguous situations. Imagine you’re balancing work, school, travel and group assignments. You’re going to learn a lot about yourself and what you’re good at. I really know what my strengths are now and I know my confidence has gone up because of this program. I have been able to meet people I wouldn’t have otherwise met,  traveled places I’ve never been before, and I got to learn about topics I don’t know if I would have ever naturally come across. If you’re looking for a change, it’s a great way to go about it.”

Rotman’s Executive Diagnostic Test for Executive MBAs

One difference between the Executive MBA Programs and the other MBA programs offered at Rotman, is the Executive Diagnostic Test (EDT). All candidates who have an undergraduate degree from a recognized university have an option to complete this test instead of the GMAT  in order to be considered for admission to any of Rotman’s Executive MBA programs.

Obtaining a successful EDT score ensures that each class is comprised of the highest quality students – those with both the necessary skills, but also the motivation to be successful. At Rotman you’ll be challenged and motivated every day by your classmates, an exceptional group of professionals who will enrich your learning and form a strong network you can leverage long after you graduate.

The EDT was developed by Rotman’s world-class faculty and focuses on key topics that will be used in several MBA courses. The test has three sections: math, graphing, and logic and reasoning. It takes approximately three hours to write. A passing grade is 80% or higher on each of the three sections, and typically, students receive feedback on their test within 72 hours. You can write the test up to three times.

One of the benefits of the EDT over the GMAT is that it requires significantly less preparation time. We provide you with all the information you need in order to prepare for and pass the test. You will receive a Math Help Guide, an EDT Workbook, and access to our EDT portal. The portal contains additional information about the EDT, including ten online video tutorials, each addressing a different topic.

Each month we offer free in-person tutorials at Rotman from 6:00 to 9:30 pm on two consecutive nights, and if you arrive early, you can enjoy a buffet dinner starting at 5:30pm. Each night covers different topics, so it’s important to attend both sessions if you can. Candidates who are out-of-province or overseas are offered additional online support in lieu of the in-person tutorials.

The first step in the admissions process for any of our Executive MBAs is to send us your resume. We review it and if we see you meet the requirements in terms of work and managerial experience, you will be invited for an interview. If the interview is successful, we will invite you to write the EDT and will give you access to all the free resources available to prepare and succeed in the test.

The Rotman Global Executive MBA at the University of Toronto offers exciting opportunities to study in key business hubs of the world. On this 18-month leadership journey, students learn from successful companies, faculty and business leaders around the globe. Recently, a group of senior managers and entrepreneurs embarked on a two-week East Asia module in the modern business hubs of Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Meeting a Network of Alumni Globally

Vicky Yang, an alumna from the Global Executive MBA program based in Hong Kong invited Rotman Staff and other alumni. Learning about Vicky’s experience during the program and the impact that it had on her career as an entrepreneur was fascinating. She attributed her decision to start her own company to the confidence, learning and experiences she gained during her Global Executive MBA. She keeps a very active and dynamic network that includes U of T alumni, not only from Rotman but from a wide variety of other areas.

Strategic Classes in a Local Context

The first course of the module was Strategic Change and Implementation taught by Brian Golden, Vice-Dean, Professional Programs at Rotman, which focused on a case study of GE’s change and growth under Jim Welsh’s leadership. The class also participated in the Capstone course, Applied Innovation, taught by Grayson Bass. After arriving in Hong Kong, the class attended Operations & Corporate Governance taught by Prof. Joe Milner and David Beatty. The content of the courses was further enhanced by five guest speakers who brought to the class a deep understanding of various industries in Asia. Guest speakers included, Craig Smith, President and Managing Director of Marriot for Asia Pacific and an Global Executive MBA alum.

Exciting Site Visits

A group photo at URWORKTo drive home global ways of doing business locally, the program intertwines local visits to dynamic businesses with the course curriculum. The first site visit of the module was hosted by URWORK, a co-working space in China. URWORK is an innovation hub that hosts start-ups and offers services in a wide variety of areas including HR, legal and finance. The class experienced the new and proliferating business of shared work space in China.

The class also visited MRD Dingshi Group in Shanghai, which is an integrated professional design company specializing in architectural design. The class had the opportunity to hear from and ask questions to Mr. Wu, Chairman of MRD Dingshi Group, who also shared his deep understanding of the development of commercial real estate in China.

Group photo at the Hong Kong Stock ExchangeAfter arriving in Hong Kong, the group visited ScotiaBank to learn about its 30 years’ of experience in China. The visit featured executives from the bank who talked about their respective units and the opportunities and challenges in the region.

The final visit for the module was to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, one of the largest financial market operators in the world. Students had the opportunity to further their knowledge of trading in Hong Kong through this visit.

Speaker Series & Networking

Every module hosts a Speaker Series & Networking event, this time Egidio Zarrella, Clients and Innovation Partner at KPMG China addressed the audience with an interactive talk about the economy in China and Hong Kong, the challenges that Hong Kong faces with the rapid digitalization of the financial market and the growth China continues to experience. The focus on innovation and the interactive nature of the talk allowed for lively participation by students and guests alike. After the talk, the networking portion of the event allowed students to grow their network by making new connections.

The Global Executive MBA program at the University of Toronto is an expansive leadership journey that will transform the way you think about your career on the global stage.

Advice from Rotman students and alumni

There are many different sources of information when it comes to getting advice and making most decisions in life, and choosing the right Master degree is no different.  In researching Rotman Master degree programs, you will most likely have viewed our website a number of times, hopefully attended an event or spoken to someone involved with the program – whether someone on the recruitment team, or a member of faculty.

One great source of information are current students and graduates – they would have had similar questions to you before starting and now have the answers to those questions (and perhaps ones you have not thought of before).

We asked the question ‘what advice would you give to someone considering choosing a Rotman program’ to students/graduates from the Executive MBA, Master of Finance, Global Executive MBA and the Morning and Evening MBA programs. We’ve highlighted a few of their comments below.
