About Us

The Ted Rogers School of Retail Management at Ryerson is the only university program in Canada to offer a Bachelor of Commerce degree where students specialize in retailing from day one and is strategically located in the heart of Toronto right beside the Eaton Centre.

Our Commitment

We offer an industry-specific focus with a broad education that spans each of the functional areas required to run a retail organization. The program was designed to meet the specific needs of modern retailing and offers a strong foundation in buying & merchandising, strategic planning, retail technologies, service quality, supply chain and operations management. Each year, students and industry partners come together to participate in numerous extra-curricular events (e.g. Michael Belcourt Lecture Series, Retail Week, Window Wonderland, and more). Experiential learning opportunities occur through hands-on projects in the classroom, during internships or co-ops, during case competitions, field trips and travel study tours.

Forward Thinking

Our faculty members conduct theoretical and applied research focused across multiple areas of the retail value chain such as retailer-vendor strategic partnerships, mobile wallet adoption, omni-channel shopping experience, luxury mobile ventures, and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Members of our Program Advisory Council and partner companies share their personal work experience and insights with students who graduate ready to face the challenges of today (and tomorrow’s) retail industry as its future leaders.

As the only school of its kind in Canada, students will be provided with a targeted Bachelor of Commerce education, which includes theory and practical experience, for those who wish to become in-demand business management professionals at the forefront of the retail industry.

The Ted Rogers School of Retail Management is at the forefront of understanding the consumer market - a leading indicator of economic strength. An education in retail with the rigor of a Bachelor of Commerce degree will enable you to become a leader in the world's most dynamic industry.

I have felt the support from the Ted Rogers School of Retail Management from day one - from my first day at orientation to helping prepare me for internship interviews. There are so many great services and student groups available to us at any time. I know that I will continue to receive the support I need at the Ted Rogers School of Management in order to be successful after graduation.
