Rotman students hit Europe for an unexpected assignment

The Globe and Mail writes on the innovative ways Canadian business schools are incorporating international experience into their academic training. Toronto's Rotman school of Management, in particular, is lauded for its series of international trips that connect MBA students with senior executives from around the world. 

"These trips offer a 'personal, professional and academic experience,' says Laura Wood, Rotman director of international programs and services."
"'When [students] come back from these experiences and go to an interview, they can speak knowledgeably and first-hand about an experience in Brazil or Hong Kong,' she says. 'It is taken seriously by the employer and that has driven a lot of [student] interest in the past couple of years.'"
"Five years ago, Rotman offered only semester-long exchanges with other universities, signing up about 20 students a year. Now the school sends out about 110 to 125 students annually—about half on study tours first introduced in 2007, and the rest on semester-long exchanges or specialty programs of shorter duration."
