2008 - 2010
Rotman is a top-rated MBA school with exceptional teachers and learning opportunities. In my final year, I led a team which placed 2nd in a case competition to launch a new product in a competitive market. We only didn't come first because we were too funny in our presentation. Who doesn't like funny?
