Fit for Business - TedPacks

Fit for Business will start your time at the Ted Rogers School of Management on the right foot, and keep you on the right track in all aspects of academic study and student life. It creates a community of students and provides you with the skills required to achieve success.

This unique initiative is a suite of resources focused on your well-being, academic success and career readiness. It integrates experiential learning and engagement activities that provide technical skills, soft skills and life skills for you to succeed in the program, in your academic journey and in your career.

All students who have been accepted into the Ted Rogers School will automatically be registered in Fit for Business, which begins the summer before your first semester to support your transition into university. In addition, all full-time students accepted to our school are eligible to apply to the industry-leading Ted Rogers Co-op program, on the condition that you continue to meet the program requirements.

Not only will you meet other new students and learn the necessary skills to succeed inside and outside the classroom, you will also earn TedPoints throughout the school year by participating in the program and some extracurricular activities.

TedPacks

One of the challenges for new university students is they may not know anyone and may feel disconnected and alone. Now that we are online, it may be even more difficult to connect with fellow students. To address this, we have built TedPacks for you.

TedPacks are groups of 45 first-year students who will be connected online and will be enrolled in the same program. You will be able to communicate with your fellow TedPack members and share your experiences with others in the same situation as you. TedPacks give you the opportunity to meet other first-year students and to build friendships.

Supporting and guiding you

The Ted Rogers School has a community of specialists and advisors to support your transition into university.

Our Academic Success Centre has a team of dedicated learning professionals to help you with strategies and study skills to achieve academic success. Student Advising is the first point of contact for students in the School of Business Management and School of Accounting & Finance who are seeking program advising. High impact advising is also available for Retail Management, Business Technology Management and Hospitality & Tourism Management students.
