Co-design a program for targeted learning
More nimble, adaptable and collaborative teams. Stronger leaders, problem solvers and communicators. And an organization that's ready for the disruptive challenges ahead. If these are your strategic priorities, we'll work with you to develop a custom program that bridges current gaps in skills and expertise, builds new potential and accelerates progress toward long-term goals.
Transform your organization or professional association
For nearly two decades, we've developed custom-designed programs in collaboration with clients across the spectrum of industries and sectors, from Starbucks and TD Bank Group to Canada Post, SickKids Foundation and the Government of Ontario – to name just a few.
We start by connecting you with one of our leading faculty members, who assesses your organization's needs and tailors program content to your unique strategic and business challenges. Then we develop and deliver your custom program – on the Rotman campus or at your preferred venue – taking care of all the logistics while your team focuses on expanding their skills, gaining new insights and working together more effectively to achieve sustainable impact.

At the Rotman School, we place a premium on original thinking and rigorous scholarship. In the classroom, our top-ranked professors share the knowledge they have gained from years of experience in both business and academia. Outside the classroom, some of the greatest minds in business share their insights at conferences, seminars and speaker series, and in articles for Rotman Management Magazine.
Rotman has strategically invested in hiring faculty members who publish influential research in their fields. Learning from industry-shaping individuals raises the level of classroom debate and makes a significant difference in our classroom experience.
Rotman has been consistently ranked in the global top ten for faculty research by Financial Times which puts us in an elite tier of institutions—alongside Harvard, Wharton, Berkeley, Stern, Stanford, Booth and Kellogg—that take the lead in the creation of business knowledge.
Rotman is also home to over ten research centres and education centres that drive innovation through daily advances in research and thought leadership.
Don't take our word for it. Take theirs:
"We wanted to build collaboration, infuse innovation into our decision-making, and gain new capabilities that would be of benefit long-term. Not only did it deliver in value in these areas, but it has proven instrumental in our problem-solving."

"We have worked with Rotman to develop in-house counsel leadership since 2013. The success of the program is due to the willingness of the Rotman team to ensure that the program continues to be valid, viable and an exceptional learning experience for the in-house community."

"I have worked with many of the top business schools in the world to develop custom programs, and Rotman ranks right at the top for client support and quality of faculty and instruction."
"An off-the-shelf, general program wouldn't work for us. We needed a program that would address some of the unique challenges we were facing as we rapidly scaled to support our global growth."
Executive Vice-President of Human Resources,
"Our partnership has exceeded our expectations in terms of the quality of the design, the competence and classroom presence of the faculty, and most importantly the ability of the Rotman team to flex and adjust based on participant feedback."
