The School of Graphic Communications Management teaches a wide variety of transferable skills sought in many fields. Everyone has a message they’re trying to spread. We help them get noticed.

Our world is a visual one. Every day we come into contact with hundreds of printed and graphic products — from giant billboards, to sleek interactive websites and unique packaging carrying the coffee you’re drinking or the smartphone you just bought.

The printing industry is Canada’s fourth largest manufacturing employer: it’s an $11 billion industry with over 60,000 employees working in more than 4,000 different organizations. The opportunities are diverse, both in region and role.

Today there’s more competition for consumers’ attention than ever before, and in graphic communications, it’s our job to make sure the product stands out, no matter what it is. It takes many steps and people to do this — from vision leading executives and entrepreneurs, project managers to creative designers and printers. We teach a wide variety of transferable skills sought in many fields. Everyone has a message they’re trying to spread. We help them get noticed.

Technology continues to change the way we receive and process information, and the printing industries have been at the forefront of this revolution — whether it’s 3D, hybrid or digital printing. The field is continuously adapting and the need for experts is growing. With a degree in graphic communications management, graduates are ready to lead the next wave in changing how we interact with products and packaging.

The School of Graphic Communications Management is housed in the Faculty of Communication and Design (FCAD). For seven decades, FCAD has been a leader in the evolution of Canada’s media and creative industries, with many one-of-a-kind programs that attract top students and faculty from around the world.
