A Message From the President

2020 has been a transformative year for RCIG because it tested the limits of our creativity, uncovering new ways of delivering professional development events in the realm of innovation. Our group engaged over 100 incoming Rotman Commerce students through a summer mentorship program, explored interest areas including human-centred design, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility, and formed strategic partnerships to deliver immersive events digitally.

Whether you're a student or an industry partner, we hope you have a chance to engage through our events and meet the driven and down-to-earth 29 student leaders that make up our team!

Life at RCIG

Business school can be daunting, scary and overwhelming. Having RCIG by my side since my first year has not only guided me through my academic journey at Rotman Commerce, but has also introduced me to some of my best friends at the University. I have met extremely fascinating corporate partners and industry leaders through RCIG’s events, whether a networking night or an innovation forum. RCIG provides students with experiences that are beyond what other student groups offer - we emphasize simulating an industry-realistic setting, and aim to introduce students to the plethora of tangible opportunities within the innovation sector. I can confidently say that RCIG has been a pivotal part, if not the most important part of my development as a commerce student, team leader and future business professional.

Dana Turetski, Alumn

RCIG  is like no other; an extremely tight-knit community driven to shape the next wave of innovation. Whether it be on our internal consulting projects to solve the the problems of multinational firms or planning local events at Rotman, you will see us enjoying our time working together to solve complex issues. We strongly believe that “if you want to go fast, go alone but if you want to go far, go together.” Working on a consulting project with Deloitte, just in my first year, I had an unparalleled learning experience. Weekly visits to their office and frequent meetings with the client accelerated my professional development ahead of other first years. I can confidently say that RCIG has the BEST consulting project on campus!
