The Dean Martin Show

October 30, 2006

"Smart, competent and driven" UofT Rotman School of Management dean Roger Martin is profiled in a six-page feature in this month's Report on Business magazine. Among other things, he complains about his experience as a business student at "anti-intellectual" Harvard, the tendency for business schools to turn out "narrow automatons," and intense competition with UWO's Ivey. Under his direction, the Rotman school has risen from 72nd to 24th place in the Financial Times rankings, quadrupled its tuition and endowment -- and he promises to hit the FT top 10 in the next four years. The article says that Ivey's "cross-enterprise leadership" sounds like "a straight rip-off of integrative thinking," Rotman's own brand. A sidebar profiles Dezso Horvath, dean of York's Schulich School of Business -- which is currently ahead of Rotman at number 18 on the FT rankings. ROB article
