June 17, 2013

TORONTO, ON – Since 2005 non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tions and social enter­pris­es who require man­age­ment con­sult­ing ser­vices have reached out to a team of four MBA stu­dents at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toronto’s Rot­man School of Man­age­ment who help these orga­ni­za­tions max­i­mize their social impact.

Rot­man NeXus offers afford­able, fee-based con­sult­ing ser­vices to sup­port a broad range of busi­ness needs at all the dif­fer­ent stages in the non-prof­it life­cy­cle, includ­ing plan­ning and start-up to increas­ing capac­i­ty and expan­sion.

The con­sul­tants, who are enter­ing the sec­ond year of the Rot­man MBA pro­gram, each bring a deep under­stand­ing of man­age­ment and busi­ness prac­tices, as well as their own expe­ri­ences in the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors in Cana­da, and inter­na­tion­al­ly, to the chal­lenges fac­ing their clients.

“Nexus pro­vides a holis­tic approach to mul­ti-faceted chal­lenges faced by non-prof­its. Our team is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing our clients as they devel­op more capac­i­ty by cre­at­ing a sus­tain­able strat­e­gy and devel­op­ing frame­works and toolk­its for non-prof­its to achieve their inno­v­a­tive aspi­ra­tions” says con­sul­tant Rad­hi­ka Sar­alaya, who is joined this year on the NeXus team by Rebec­ca Vernik, Kavi­ta Nayar and Tyren­ny Ander­son.

Con­nect­ed not only to the Rot­man School’s world-renowned fac­ul­ty, the con­sul­tants are also sup­port­ed by men­tors and a board of direc­tors com­prised of fac­ul­ty and indus­try pro­fes­sion­als who pro­vide the best insights from the non-prof­it, busi­ness and aca­d­e­m­ic worlds. Research by Rot­man fac­ul­ty is ranked 9th in the world by the Finan­cial Times.

“Through Rot­man NeXus, clients not only have access to four of our tal­ent­ed MBA stu­dents but are able to tap into best prac­tices and knowl­edge from the Rot­man School and indus­try at large,” notes Prof. Dilip Soman, a Rot­man NeXus board mem­ber and the Corus Chair in Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Strat­e­gy at the Rot­man School.

Past NeXus clients include Cen­tre for Social Inno­va­tion, Eva’s Ini­tia­tives at the Phoenix Print Shop, The Toron­to Mendelssohn Choir, and Cana­di­an Youth Busi­ness Foun­da­tion.
