Dean Tiff Macklem’s priority is to build on the School’s extraordinary legacy of innovation and The Rotman Annual Fund is one of our most important resources in this regard. Your decision to pursue a Rotman degree represents a significant personal investment - continue your investment as alumni. The Rotman Annual Fund plays an important role in Rotman’s continued success, growth and innovation. These funds provide the School with flexibility to invest in innovative ideas, seize new opportunities and respond to student and market needs. But it relies entirely on the generosity of alumni and friends.


The Rotman School provides over $5 million in financial aid through a broad range of scholarships and award programs each year. In addition to recognizing outstanding academic achievements, these programs help expand access to a Rotman education and ensure we continue to attract the best and brightest students from diverse backgrounds. By supporting student scholarships, our alumni donors are investing in the next generation of leadership, ensuring exceptional talent continues to flourish at Rotman.


The Rotman Onboard Fellowship Program places talented upper-year MBA students on non-profit boards and charities for six to eight months to work on real-world projects of strategic importance. Past partner organizations include the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, SickKids Foundation, and The National Ballet of Canada.


Global Consulting Projects enable full-time MBA students to earn a course credit while applying what they learn in the classroom to assist clients around the world. Recently, 31 students travelled to global destinations, including China, Myanmar, Nigeria and Tanzania, to help solve complex challenges faced by local communities. These projects ranged from setting up micro-financing systems to improving entrepreneurial opportunities for at-risk communities.
