The University of Toronto announces the search for the next Dean of the Rotman
School of Management and invites applications, nominations and expressions of interest.
The University of Toronto is the largest and most prestigious university in Canada, with more
than 11,000 faculty and staff, some 80,000 students, annual revenues of $2.4 billion, and one of the
premier research libraries in North America. The University and its partner hospitals were awarded
$915 million in external research funding last year.
Against the backdrop of North America’s third-largest financial centre and one of the world’s
most culturally-diverse cities, the Rotman School of Management has set out to redesign business
education for the 21st Century. Rotman has become one of the world’s top business schools, ranked
#11 internationally for its Full-Time MBA program by BusinessWeek and #46 in Global MBA
programs by The Financial Times.
Over the 100-year history of the Faculty of Management at the University of Toronto, much has
changed. Joseph L. Rotman’s support in 1995 to name the Faculty put the business school on a steep
upward trajectory and it has undergone a dramatic period of growth in recent years, nearly doubling
the size and scope of its research and educational activities. To accommodate the expansion of its
activities, Rotman has opened a new $91 million building, providing a home worthy of the school’s
global reputation, and helping it attract even more top professors, students and corporate recruiters.
The Dean of the Rotman School of Management is the academic, administrative, business and
community leader of the school and an important member of the University of Toronto’s leadership
team. In an era of change in higher education, particularly in business education, the new Dean
is expected to take Rotman to an even higher research and education standing and continue to
strengthen the school’s reputation with the corporate sector. The successful candidate will have a
commitment to teaching and research, as well as significant managerial achievements.
The Search Committee will begin its consideration of individuals immediately and will continue until
the position is filled. Nominations and applications, including qualifications and accomplishments
on the basis of which the individual merits consideration, should be submitted in confidence to:
