What is it about your MBA program that students love the most?  

A new way to think about today’s global challenges.

Tell us about one new course that has recently been added to your curriculum in the last year.  How do you see this influencing the current cohort?

Rotman’s most popular one-of-a-kind MBA course is “Catastrophic Failure in Organizations”, taught by Rotman professor András Tilcsik, who was recently named to Poet & Quant’s Top 40 Under 40 for his ability to make events compelling while peeling away the deeper lessons behind them. Most business schools are designed for “business as usual”. This course teaches Rotman students how to react when disruptive events shatter all expectations – a valuable skill in a world where the “new normal” is anything but.

 If you could invite a fictional character to lecture in one of your courses, who would it be and what course would he/she teach?  Why?


Gordon Gekko’s famous pronouncement that “Greed is good” in the Oliver Stone film “Wall Street” is classic reference among MBA students thinking about a career in investment banking. While Rotman is well known for its strength in finance, if Mr. Gekko were invited to speak in Rotman professor Sarah Kaplan’s “Corporation 360” course, he might be surprised to find his view challenged by Rotman students considering the deeper implications of modern socioeconomic trends and geopolitical impacts in doing business in a globalized world.
