“ The Rotman Commerce program allowed me time to explore and discover opportunities outside of the classroom. This helped develop and strengthen my soft skills and supported me in becoming a well-rounded candidate when it came time to apply for jobs. In my work now, I combine and apply what I learned from my classes and the extracurricular activities I pursued while a student.” B A R H AY I TA B H AT I A , B C O M ’ 1 8 S TA F F A C C O U N TA N T I I DELOITTE
