Message from Associate Dean

The vision and mission for the Ted Rogers School of Management articulate our distinctive brand and differentiate us from other business schools and so do our research and graduate programs. Our faculty members are thought leaders with professional relevance and research competence in areas not traditionally seen in business schools, which have led us to succeed in securing funding from all three Tri-Council agencies – SSHRC, NSERC, and CIHR. In particular, our work strives to address societal need in Canada and globally in areas that range across social innovation and entrepreneurship, sustainability and social responsibility, internationalization success of SMEs, diversity in organizations and on boards, as well as long term care, inclusive design, moral motivation, law and privacy, social media network analysis, and information technology influences on retail and hospitality and tourism sectors to name but a few. This array of research combined with our solid ties to industry and community partners foster exciting opportunities for involvement in diverse areas of scholarship and practice, and advance management knowledge to make a difference at home and abroad.

Ryerson’s academic plan, “Our Time to Lead”, challenges us to become one of Canada’s top 10 non-medical research universities by increasing our SRC intensity and impact. The plan’s priority areas, as well as its eight strategic research themes - Digital Media & Technology; Energy & Sustainability; Health & Well Being; Technological & Industrial Innovation; City Building & Social Justice; Design, Culture & Creative Industries; Management, Entrepreneurship & Competitiveness; and Teaching & Learning for the New Economy - are highly suited to our School’s areas of strength and position us to be a key contributor to Ryerson University’s goals. Recent initiatives such as our joint research program with Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the re-launch of the Master of Science in Management degree, and the Ted Rogers School of Management’s partnership with the Toronto Region Board of Trade, demonstrate that the Ted Rogers School of Management is poised for strategic research growth through multiple paths of faculty, student, and community engagement.
