Sales education at Ryerson aims to advance the sales skills of our students at various levels throughout their university experience. Our sales ecosystem includes the following:
Ted Rogers Sales Leadership Program
The Ted Rogers Sales Leadership Program is a two-year program that brings together dedicated students from all of the schools and departments at the Ted Rogers School. It provides specialized experiential learning activities for emerging sales leaders, aimed at developing professional sales skills to create candidates for dynamic job opportunities. Upon graduation from the program with the completed requirements, students will hit the ground running with highly-developed sales skills, and the confidence to apply those skills towards a successful career in sales leadership.
“Ryerson will therefore be one of the first Canadian universities to offer a premium Sales Leadership Program which meets both student and industry needs,” says Dr. Karen Peesker.

The Ryerson Sales Initiative is a student-run organization aimed to educate, connect and innovate sales. RSI organizes various workshops and networking events throughout the year to connect students with industry professionals, as well as fellow students that share the same passion for sales. It works to build the interest and develop beginner sales skills for first- and second- year students.
