Rotman Dean

Our new dean was announced yesterday. http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-12-05/rotman-goes-to-the-bank-of-canada-for-new-dean

Excited to see what he will be doing to enrich the Rotman experience. The school had a board which was “looking for” dean for quite sometime and finally they found the best.

I was surprised to know that few 2nd years students were also part of the board. Cool right?!! Students choosing their dean.

All of us are gearing up for the term exams (in 2 weeks) and i will be blogging about “Entrepreneurship @ Rotman” in the next post
