hmm, how do you delete a post? tried to get rid of my double post up there...

anyway, it's not that it's a limited job supply. it's not really, i don't think it is. jobs are out there, especially for MBAs, you just have to find them. the limited part is the jobs that come on campus. if you're not afraid of going out there and networking and selling yourself to a potential employer, you'll find a job. and i think it's just that lot of people are hung up on going through the career centre for jobs, and maybe this applies to internationals because unlike torontonians you guys don't have that network to start with and might have to rely on the career centre to start you off. that's what i think anyway, could be totally wrong.

well, if i may, i'm going to disagree with you. just a tiny little bit.

i think that the point of the career centre is to prepare you for recruiting. and rotman does an amazing job at that. your career coach knows you well, your story and your background, and you can see them as often as you like (as i have). they help you tailor your story to your career aspirations, help you with your resume and your cover letter... hell, your career coach even looks over your cold call emails to make sure you're saying the right things.

i just don't think that it's in their power to get more employers on campus, or that it's their fault that there aren't as many on campus recruiters as we would all like. they're doing a good job of attracting the top firms (if you're into consulting, all the top consulting firms recruit here). it's just that there's not 350 positions on campus, and it sucks.

Hi, I wish to apply for Rotman MBA for Fall 2016 program, however I have a querry. The thing is that I have been running a self employed business since June 2010 and to the current date. Would this self employed business constitute towards the work experience requirement?
It should be noted, though, that I started my Bachelors degree in September 2011 and recently graduated in June 2015, and so have been running my business while continuing my education. So, am I eligible to apply for Rotman MBA or the work experience necessarily have to be gained after finishing the undergraduate degree?

Thanks
Raffay Tarar

Hello, a few questions:

1) Does Rotman exclusively focus on your final year GPA? or do they look at CGPA.

2) Is 'final year' GPA considered courses you took in the final year, or courses per final year of your curriculum. e.g, if you took a 2nd year class in your last semester, would this be overlooked, and instead they would look for all year 4 courses and then average out that GPA. (e.g. you took a 4th year course in your 3rd year).

3) Are Rotman's W/E requirements rigid? I quit my job after a few years, and after spending 5 years in the particular industry to go back to school full time to complete my final year in my undergrad. I am currently in my last semester. Will Rotman take this into consideration all though the W/E was technically prior to graduation?

WRaymond150: not sure about the GPA stuff, I think they take final year based on transcript. will need admissions to confirm. but in terms of work experience... well, I had zero work experience going into the program, and I was fine.

tallyho_88: if I remember correctly, letters of recommendation need to be in a sealed envelop, with the author's signature across the fold, not in an email.

Hi Jigglypuff,

Thank you for taking your time out to help us.

Just one question.

Master's Minimum Admission Requirements:

Bachelor's Degree Equivalent: Completion of BOTH a Bachelor`s (three-year) degree and a Master`s OR A Bachelor`s degree requiring four years of study (e.g. BPharm, MBBS, BDS, BTech, BEng, or BArch)

I have done my Bachelors of Commerce- This course is a 3 Year course in India. I have also completed 3 levels of the CFA Program. But above says that BOTH a Bachelors and a Masters are required. So does this mean that I am not eligible? Or should I contact the admissions team?

Thanks,
Al

jigglypuff: That is something that I can't seem to find out. Are you sure? I am trying to confirm that. I do know about a few american schools that need LOR through email.

The LOR needs to be submitted online by your recommenders. In the online application system, it asks for the email addresses of your recommenders.

The Essay topic is: When you reflect 10 years from now, how will you measure your MBA experience? (500 words)

Fast-forward to 10 next years and then reflect back assuming what all happened in that time.

Hi,

I heard that international students at Rotman are eligible to stay in the country after the MBA has finished. I was wondering if there are any special requirements to stay in Canada.

Hello, for Rotman Executive MBA, how exactly an applicants profile evaluated against this requirement-
- 3+ years if experience in mid to senior management roles

I have an experience of 9 years in the IT services industry with technical roles mostly, but I have a strong understanding of Processes in the Industry and have even worked in Process centric roles such as configuration management and Release management for almost 1.5 years. I am also certified in ITIL. Does this count?

Please help me understand how this particular criterion can be met and how stringent it is?

Thanks.

I am a applicant from India and have a query regarding required GPA in under graduation for admission in full time MBA course.I have scored 73.50% in my graduation which is equivalent to 3.5 (first class) and my percentage for my final year is 77.25% which is equivalent to GPA 3.5 (first class).
But as mentioned in third point of undergraduate requirement, that if the applicant completed his graduation outside of Canada must check International Degree Equivalencies and there the requirement is 8.0 CGPA (from other univ) and my CGPA is 7.7. Am I eligible to apply for Rotman ?

Hoping a positive reply asap.

Thanks and Regards,
Gaurav Singh
