Career Preparation

Rotman Commerce graduates are sought after by some of the world’s best-known companies because our students have a deep understanding of business that is underpinned by our rigorous and cutting-edge curriculum.

At Rotman Commerce, many firm representatives and alumni come to our campus to network. Before entering Rotman Commerce, I had a very vague understanding of accounting, but through networking with individuals who currently work in the industry and Big 4 firms, I was able to break down the pros and cons for specializing in accounting.
