University of Toronto Rotman School of Business (13th in North America)
School Introduction: The Rotman School of Management is the leading business school in North America and even the world. The first place in Canada Business School.

More than 8,000 graduates hold leadership positions in companies and other institutions in 73 countries around the world. The local financial industry in Canada has an extremely extensive alumni network and far-reaching influence.
Feature: The biggest feature is the full development of the financial profession, but this is also related to the geographical location. Toronto is the third largest financial center in North America. Rotman is adjacent to Bay Street, Toronto's financial street. The relationship is equivalent to Columbia University and Wall Street. Rotman's employment in the past two years is still good. It is the only one in Canada who dares to provide detailed employment information publicly. This not only represents the confidence of the school, but also greatly helps the applicant.
Disadvantages: Rotman's weakness is that, first of all, the degree of internationalization is low, losing much of the aura of Canada's first elite school, Rotman's international status will be greatly reduced. For example, the proportion of international students is only 40%, and 90% of the employment of students all work in Toronto. Second, employment is relatively narrow. The six major Canadian banks have recruited nearly 60 people. Together with foreign banks, insurance companies, etc., nearly 60% of the work in the financial services industry, plus nearly 20% of consultancy, the proportion of other industries is very small. Finally, rotman controls the proportion of Chinese students, and its harsh enrollment conditions require Chinese students to average more than 85 points. So if you want to enter the North American financial industry and you don't want to go back to the country immediately, Rotman should be a good choice.
Faculty: Many professors here are famous, such as Professor John C. Hull, director of the Bonharm Financial Center. He is an internationally recognized authority on derivatives, a financial textbook for domestic universities, “options futures and other Derivatives is translated from his book. He is currently my tutor, so if I have any problems, I can communicate with him directly and be able to accept his guidance.
