Rotman announces Problem Solving Challenge 2014
Rotman School of Management is set to host the Rotman Problem Solving Challenge 2014 for its prospective and incoming Full-Time MBA candidates. The two day live decision making challenge will see Rotman faculty and student mentors guiding the students through the challenge. The first of its kind, the Rotman Problem Solving Challenge provides the future Rotman MBA students with a unique opportunity to dive deep into an unstructured, messy problem using the College’s model-based approach to problem solving. In the Rotman Problem Solving Challenge participants will be asked to frame, analyze and solve a problem.

- Compete to win a number of scholarship awards
