Fit for Business
What is Fit for Business?
Fit for Business (FFB) is a new program designed exclusively for first-year Ted Rogers students to amplify awareness and engagement around the unique initiatives to achieve academic, career and personal success at the Ted Rogers School of Management while building a sense of community and meaningful shared experiences within a TedPack.
This unique program integrates experiential learning and engagement activities that provide technical, soft and life skills for you to succeed in your program while meeting other students and earning TedPoints along the way. Additionally, 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.
Transforming the first-year experience, you will transition into Ted Rogers with a higher sense of community, knowledge, and confidence to access and participate in the right services, resources and events to empower you for success. Made just for you, look out for your personalized weekly Ted Rogers Fit for Business email. Let us know if you don’t see this in your inbox!
My Story in 30
My Story in 30 is an FFB series where upper-year Ted Rogers students share their stories in 30-minutes. These are personal student experiences that are real and honest - journeys that aren't always openly talked about.
No scripts, no slides, just a real-life story. Register below. 👇
For TedPacks that have the most number of students from their TedPack attend, you each get an additional TedPoint for attending this series.
One of the challenges for new students is that you may not know anyone, making it easy to feel disconnected, alone and difficult to meet others. Which is why we have built TedPacks.
TedPacks are groups of 45 first-year students who are enrolled in the same program to build community, communicate and connect with one another. This enables you to get to know the other students within your TedPack while engaging in activities together, making friends and earning TedPoints. Every TedPack will have one to two TedPack Leaders!

You will have access to weekly content and discussion boards to post, engage and chat with members of your TedPack. You currently already have access to your TedPacks shell within D2L, where you receive weekly content on the Ted Rogers’ Student Society (TRSS), Business Career Hub (BCH), Academic Success Centre (ASC), Student Advising and other program-specific important information on Ryerson.
Every TedPack will have one to two TedPack Leaders, who are first-year students that will facilitate and organize virtual meet and greets, activities such as socials, study sessions and more over Zoom. Your TedPack Leaders will share with you important information and upcoming events for your TedPack to connect online, build community and create friendships. To see the TedPacks Events Calendar, check your weekly Ted Rogers Fit for Business emails.
TedPack Mentors are upper-year Ted Rogers students that mentor TedPack Leaders so they can succeed in their first-year student leadership role while providing them with the opportunity to learn from an experienced, knowledgeable and senior student who has been in their shoes.
One TedPoint is awarded for each engagement you register for, including initiatives, services, and events across Ted Rogers through the Academic Success Centre (ASC), Business Career Hub (BCH), Student Advising, Ted Rogers Students' Society (TRSS) and FFB as seen above. Your social and study sessions that your TedPack Leader hosts for your TedPack also awards you with TedPoints and this is the one initiative that pre-registration does not apply to.
Your TedPacks compete with each other based on TedPoints engagement with the other TedPacks. TedPacks with the most students attending the My Story in 30 weekly series each get an additional TedPoint.
The more TedPoints collected, the more opportunity there is for you to redeem them for rewards.
Look out for your personalized weekly Fit for Business emails you receive on Tuesdays to see how many TedPoints you have collected so far and to find out which TedPacks are in the leading three!
Rewards are given out to the the TedPacks and students with the most TedPoints collected. See your weekly Ted Rogers Fit for Business email for how many you have individually collected so far.
The top students and TedPacks will be notified and will have a menu of options to choose from which include:
TedPack Team Rewards
- Exclusive chat for your TedPack with a Ted Rogers alumni or industry expert.
- Exclusive sessions on insights regarding co-op prep and a deep-dive into what the online interview process looks like.
- Access to one sold-out Bootcamp of your choice.
- 1-on-1 with an industry professional who's expertise is marketing students to employers.
