Toronto / Rotman MBA Recommendation Questions

Self-employed applicants or those employed with a family business should avoid obtaining endorsements from subordinates and seek out professional peers instead. The Rotman MBA recommendation consists of a series of short answer questions and the opportunity to provide a long-form overall recommendation. The MBA recommendation questions for the current admissions season are available below.
