Learn from the best
Make the most of Rotman’s deep ties to the business community by taking part in Rotman Café Connections. This unique mentorship opportunity pairs current students with seasoned industry experts and Rotman alumni who are eager to share their expertise, knowledge and experience.
Early in the first year of the program, professionals across a wide range of industries are invited to meet with Rotman students for a breakfast kickoff event where each student gets one-on-one time with at least four professionals from the industry of their choice, such as consulting, consumer goods or healthcare.
Following this event, a second one-on-one meeting is set up between each student and the professionals with whom they had the strongest connection. From there, our students and their new mentors are encouraged to continue to remain in contact and develop their relationship.
The industry professionals that participate in this initiative are motivated to forge strong relationships with our students. These relationships go beyond a few email exchanges, and provide students with real insight into the industry they are interested in, and valuable guidance in how to prepare for a career in their chosen field.
