Spread out over 2 months, Term 1 tests your grit. With quant heavy subjects, individual and group assignments, presentations and critiques, this term makes the foundation term seem like a breeze. Add case competitions and club events to the mix and you have a typical day in the life of an MBA student at Rotman.

4.TEAMWORK

People are nice. For the most part. I, personally had an amazing team that always had my back. Ask for help. There are always people willing to help.

5. FOCUS

Focus is Key. This means you have to make sacrifices to get what you want. Prioritize and Manage your time well. Dean’s List? Social Butterfly? Case Competition Specialist?

 

 

Wishing everyone an amazing 2016.

Onward to Term 2 !

Tips from the Foundation Term*  :

  1. Campaign and be an elected representative of the Graduate Business Council (GBC)
  2. Clubs – Join some Clubs. The ones you really like. Try not to spread yourself too thin by joining too many clubs because you really won’t have much time to devote to each club individually.
  3. Campaign and be an elected representative of a club for your section
  4. Socialize – Go to some Tipsy Tuesdays
  5. Love your Team – Seriously, you are going to spend a lot of time with your team doing group work. Get to know them. Work with them. Be a good teammate and contribute. Oh, and the team remains the same for the next term as well.

*NOTE : Optional

Well, that’s it for the Foundation Term. Strive onward to TERM 1 !!!
