TRSM goes way beyond what you learn in the classroom

Make lifelong professional and personal connections by joining one of the Ted Rogers Students’ Society’s 30 student groups, or one of the almost 100 student groups university-wide. Student groups are the heart and soul of TRSM, giving the hallways a consistent energy that you won’t find at any other school and holding hundreds of events every year.

Gain experience and skills through exciting networking events, case competitions, community initiatives and innovative experiential learning challenges.

From course unions dedicated to finance, retail, and real estate to interest groups focusing on sports and business and corporate social responsibility, there’s a student group for everyone at TRSM.
