Rotman Connect: leverage your network
Rotman alumni work in diverse industries and organizations around the world, leading change and helping to foster innovative new ideas and businesses. With this amazing reach and diversity, it can be challenging for alumni to connect with fellow graduates to grow their professional networks.
To address this need, Rotman’s alumni team has created Rotman Connect. The online platform and mobile app allows alumni to find each other, share knowledge and experiences, engage in professional networking, and make mentorship connections. Search for and find jobs, talent, experts, mentors, classmates, events and more. Users are able to search for alumni by city, year, degree, job, industry, company or keyword.
“That’s the beauty of Rotman Connect: you don’t have to wait to get connected.”
—Nimish Bhatt, MBA '16
Rotman Connect allows for fast, easy, direct connections between alumni across all graduating years and programs. Since launching, the platform has grown organically to over five thousand active members, working and living all over the world. Using the alumni directory, members can connect with each other for personalized mentorship, or they can leverage the larger-scale wisdom of the crowd. It is an ideal space for collaborations of all kinds, helping to catalyze novel concepts and incubating new business ideas.
Nimish Bhatt (MBA ‘16), Commercial Account Manager at RBC, praises the speed and seamlessness of the connections he’s made via the platform, as opposed to more general social media tools like LinkedIn. “That’s the beauty of Rotman Connect: you don’t have to wait to get connected. You can send a message to other alumni instantly. In my experience, the response has been quick and effective,” he explains.
Nimish also says that he values and appreciates the exclusivity of the platform, and the sense of community that it fosters as a result. “We already know we are part of the same community—there is a sense of belonging. The premise of the platform is predefined: we are all from Rotman, and we want to connect. It is a fantastic tool that we should all leverage.”
