A Message from the Director

We are proud to be Canada’s leading school to blend a solid management education with both the practical and theoretical information and communication technology (ICT) skills that are in critical demand across different sectors of Canadian and North American economy. The 21st century is characterized by exciting new opportunities provided by information technology and by the myriad of changes that information technology is bringing to organizations and society. Our Bachelor of Commerce degree equips our students with the knowledge, skills, and practical experience needed to facilitate these changes and to build a solid foundation for their career development.

The vitality of this school comes from our continuous involvement with industry and our faculty's commitment to academic excellence. Our incoming students are joining a school that will continue to change and improve over the years they will spend with us. Our graduates are already succeeding in a wide range of careers – as marketing and product managers, project leaders, business analysts, management and computer consultants, application developers and implementers. Some have completed graduate studies at leading schools in North America and Europe to further improve their credentials and contribute to ICT-related knowledge and practice.

The school year is short and the program is demanding. Organization and planning are very important. We encourage students to participate in time management and study skills sessions available through Student Learning Support. We also think it is important that students find time for recreation as well as time for studying. Active participation in organizations and activities on campus increases students’ enjoyment of student life and subsequent success at Ryerson.

If you are an industry representative, we strongly recommend you consider hiring students from our program for your businesses. Whether on coop placement, as part-time workers, or upon graduation, they arrive uniquely prepared and ready to begin work. Come by and visit. You will be impressed!

The staff and faculty of the Ted Rogers School of Information Technology Management are always willing to work with students and employers to address any academic or career questions that may arise. Please get to know us. We look forward to working with you.

To all our students, good luck in your academic endeavours, and we wish you a happy, fulfilling and successful academic year!
