How much does it cost to attend TRSM?

Tuition fees vary depending on the program, if accommodations are needed and if you are attending from out of province or country. To learn more about the fees, finances and the cost of attending TRSM, visit Ryerson University’s admissions page.

What are the differences between a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)?

The Bachelor of Commerce (BComm) degree originated in Britain and traditionally involves majoring in a specialized area of business, such as accounting or finance, both of which can be studied at the School of Accounting & Finance. A Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) is intended to provide students with more general knowledge in all the functional areas of business, and may or may not include a major. At this time, TRSM and Ryerson University do not offer BBA degrees.

At TRSM, the School of Accounting & Finance, Ted Rogers School of Business Management, Ted Rogers School of Information Technology Management, Ted Rogers School of Hospitality and Tourism Management and Ted Rogers School of Retail Management are all BComm programs. The School of Health Services Management is a degree-completion program.

What is a degree-completion program? Do I need to have completed post-secondary education first?

Degree completion means that your previous education (diploma or degree) will constitute years one and two of a four-year Bachelor degree, and your work in school will be equal to years three and four. TRSM currently offers a part-time Bachelor of Health Administration degree-completion at the School of Health Services Management. Students enroll in either the Health Services Management program or Health Information Management program.

What types of graduate programs are available?

TRSM offers three innovative graduate degrees, including an MBA Global, MBA in the Management of Technology and Innovation and a Masters in Management Science (MMSc) in the Management of Technology and Innovation. Ryerson University also offers graduate studies, where you can earn your master’s or PhD.

Is financial assistance available?
