The Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University offers a thesis-based master's degree in management (MScM) that is designed for students wishing to pursue a research career in industry or academia, and equips them with qualitative and quantitative research skills across several disciplines in Management. You can choose to work with a faculty advisor in the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management to develop a program of study and thesis research in this area. For details about this program, please consult Master of Science in Management.
To graduate from the Hospitality & Tourism Management program, students must complete 1,000 hours of documented real-world work experience in the hospitality and tourism industry. This provides students with the essential balance of theory and practice to succeed in hospitality and tourism upon graduation. It also allows students to try out a range of professional settings and to evaluate industry and management styles first-hand, helping them to clarify their academic and career goals.
Most of the information you need about the HTM Hours program can be found on the HTM Co-op and Work Experience website.
You must finish all of your courses within a specified number of years. In our program it is 8 years. This is known as your timespan and it starts “ticking” your first term after admission. Even though you may not be attending Ryerson for one or more terms (for example, you have been Discontinued), you continue to use up your timespan.
Calculate your timespan as follows:
For full-time programs, multiply the number of years scheduled for full-time study by 2 (typically 8 years);
For full-time co-op programs, multiply the number of years scheduled for full-time study (including co-op terms) by 2 (typically 10 years);
The first Fall semester at HTM includes all required courses, which means no other courses have to be added by students entering the program. However, students do have to select their liberal course for the following Winter semester during the enrollment period, before the school year starts. The enrollment period is usually in August, and the dates to add/drop/swap courses can be found on Ryerson's Significant Dates calendar.
Make sure to check out the HTM course calendar.
