Convocation is a significant milestone, marking the successful completion of an academic program, and a new beginning, as graduates are welcomed into the wider alumni community. This year's ceremony may feel a little different than those of the past, but it is still an important occasion, a time to celebrate - either in person or virtually - with family, classmates and friends.
Message to graduates from Interim Dean, Kenneth Corts
Congratulations to the class of 2020! On November 21, 2020, we celebrate Convocation day, marking this unique milestone in your academic and professional achievement.
This year’s Fall Convocation is a virtual gathering, bringing together graduates from across the Rotman School, including from the Diploma in Professional Accounting, from our MBA programs (the Full-Time, Morning/Evening, Executive and Global Executive MBA in Health and Life Sciences) and from our PhD program.
Graduation is a moment of growth and transition, when students officially become part of the Rotman alumni community, a proud network that spans the globe. It is also a time of reflection, when graduates consider all the hard work and dedication that went into their achievement, and all those who helped along the way: the faculty and staff committed to their students’ success, the classmates, partners, family and friends.
And while all of us at Rotman wish that we could gather in person at Convocation Hall, as in years’ past, this is still a special moment, wherever our graduates choose to take part in this special occasion.
On behalf of all of the Rotman School, we wish each and every one of you the very best. We are very proud of the class of 2020, and will be watching as you take the world by storm. And we will all be cheering you on.
