Learning through different types of experiences is a key component of the academic experience within the Ted Rogers School of Retail Management.
Our degree program incorporates field trips and travel study opportunities; real world projects in the classroom and internship/co-op work terms; the chance to go on an international exchange or participate in competitions and community activities around campus.
Getting involved is easy and there is always a new opportunity just around the corner!
As a Retail Management student, you will have the opportunity to participate in travel study trips at various points throughout your academic career.
Each year our fourth year students attend the National Retail Federation (NRF) conference in New York City where they see the latest and greatest in retail technology, learn from guest speakers representing the titans of the industry, and tour Manhattan to find unique retail formats with the guidance of a professional retail consultant.
Every two years, we offer RMG917 - Asia Pacific Travel study as a degree credit course that culminates in a trip to 3 different cities in China. Students experience very different retail markets in each city, meet with domestic retailers and international exporters, and visit other university programs during their stay.

What I love most about the Ted Rogers School of Retail Management is the opportunities it has for its students, including experiential learning and the many conferences that connect you to the industry.
