We have incredible respect for our working professional students who work, study, balance family life and play all at the same time. We asked a few of our alumni how they did it, and about some of their most memorable moments during their time at Rotman outside the classroom.
“Simultaneously writing my wedding vows and completing my accounting assignment while flying back to Toronto.”
– Michael Hayes (pictured above), MFin, CFA, Senior Advisor, Office of the Vice Chair, BMO Capital Markets
“Working on my derivatives assignment while trying not to wake my newborn son who was sleeping in my arms.”
– Raymond Lam, MFin, CFA, Director, Investment Research and Analysis, Manulife Financial
“Winning the McArthur Cup Championship at the Harvard MBA hockey tournament and beating elite Ivy League Schools. A first for the Rotman hockey club!”
– Dallas Gray, MBA, Associate, Sales and Trading, TD Securities
“My case competition team stayed up all night to meet the proposal deadline. None of us had slept much in days, and as exhausted as we were, I really miss the level of teamwork, camaraderie and tenacity we demonstrated as a group.”
– Miranda Fong, MFin, MBA, CFA, Credit Risk Manager, Royal Bank of Canada
