TORONTO, ON – The Financial Times released its annual survey of global Executive Education programs today. The open enrolment programs at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management were ranked 19th internationally, an increase of five places over last year’s results.
The ranking is based on a survey of participants in the Rotman School’s open enrolment programs such as the School’s trademark Integrative Thinking program and also governance programs offered in partnership with the Institute of Corporate Directors, as well as information provided to the Financial Times by the School.
“Our approach to all of our programs helps our program participants to find new ways to solve the really tough problems – the thorny issues with no obvious solution that plague every executive,” says Dean Roger Martin. “We ask them to actually try out the tools and engage in new ways of doing things and this approach is reflected in the ranking results.”
The Rotman programs were ranked in the top ten of six individual categories including #1 ranking in New Skills and Learning, #4 in Preparation, #4 in Aims Achieved, #7 in Course Design, #9 in Faculty and #10 in Teaching Methods and Materials. In the Financial Times survey of custom executive programs, the Rotman School programs rose four places to 58th.

As previously announced, after a highly successful offering last fall, the Rotman Integrative Thinking Program is returning to London, UK. The two-day executive program will take place on September 20 – 21, 2012 at the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane. The program will also be available in Toronto in November this year. Registration for both programs is available here and further information about Integrative Thinking at the Rotman School is at www.rotman.utoronto.ca/integrativethinking.
