2. LEARN FROM THE BEST
In the Rotman Commerce classroom, you'll learn the fundamentals and nuances of business with world-renowned researchers like Dilip Soman and Andras Tilcsik; popular and skilled teachers like Dragan Stojanovic, Fotini Tolias, and Nouman Ashraf; and community leaders and industry insiders like David Scrymgeour and Ann Armstrong. And within the Faculty of Arts & Science, you'll have access to courses taught by leading experts in their fields - from anthropology to Yiddish, you can count on getting an unparalleled education from some of the country's best professors.
3. it's not just business as usual
With our curriculum, you start your business education from day one, and because you will also take half of your courses in the Faculty of Arts & Science, you will have the opportunity to complement your business specialization with in-depth study in an area of your choosing outside of business. Many of our students choose to pursue minors in subjects that complement their specialists, like economics, psychology, or a second language, while others fulfill their desires to learn more about fields unrelated to their business interests. With today's employers looking to hire individuals who stand out from the crowd, having a well-rounded education is key.
