As we approach our first deadlines for our three part-time working professional programs (Morning MBA, Evening MBA and Master of Finance) at Rotman, here are a few handy tips you’ll need to know:

  1. Morning & Evening MBA application deadline: November 30
  2. Master of Finance application deadline: December 1
  3. An MBA or an MFin? How do you choose? It comes down to your experience and your goals. The MBA will equip you with all round business knowledge, while the MFin allows finance professionals to focus solely on the different areas of applied finance.
  4. New entrance awards! We recognize your commitment and dedication as a working professional and announced these entrance awards in addition to those already existing. Entrance awards range from $5,000 to $30,000 each.
    • Tip: the earlier you apply, the greater your chances of securing our new and existing entrance awards.

David Goldreich is an Associate Professor of Finance, and is the Academic Director of the Morning and Evening MBA Programs. Prior to joining Rotman, he was Assistant Professor of Finance at the London Business School. His research addresses various topics including Treasury auctions, bond liquidity, and most notably the book-building method for IPOs.

David, can you tell us what you like best about teaching at Rotman?
I enjoy the opportunity to learn from my students at the same time that they’re learning from our teaching. Our students are from a variety of backgrounds and industries; everyone brings different experiences and perspectives to the material being discussed in the classroom.

What do you know now, that you wish you knew when you were just starting your career?
Coming from a very technical background, I have learnt that soft skills are incredibly important. They are a complement to technical skills. Success is dependent on mastering both skill sets.

From your experience teaching, what qualities do your successful students possess?
The most successful students have a combination of intelligence, curiosity and most importantly, strong interpersonal skills. Students with innate curiosity learn so much more from our programs instead of just memorizing the material.

How would you describe your teaching style?
Relaxed and conversational. My main goal is for my students to acquire a very strong intuition about the basic concepts of my courses. If they achieve this they will be able to use this knowledge for the length of their career.
