Rotman & Dempsey Unite for Summer Internship Program

University of Toronto’s Business school, Rotman School of Management and Dempsey are collaborating for the first time since President Bowes Dempsey attended U of T’s business school in 1964. In fact, Bowes graduated as part of U of T’s inaugural MBA class.

When asked what drew him to the program at the time, Bowes replied : “the novelty factor appealed to me and I was curious about what we could learn.”

Currently ranked the #1 Business School in Canada, U of T’s business program is the largest in the country with over 500 students across its 1st & 2nd year courses. It has an evenly mixed Canadian and International student body with an alumni from over 70 countries.

Dempsey’s Beauty & Gifts Division & the Purchasing team were keen to collaborate with the Rotman School of Management when hearing that many of their students were eager to find local summer placement positions.

Chester Santiago started his position last week in Purchasing and Joseph Harb is joining the B&G team as of June 15th. Both internships will run until late August.

We look forward to welcoming our summer interns and building new ties with one of the world’s top universities and one that shares Dempsey’s vision of encouraging meaningful relationships in this dynamic and fast paced business age.
