Ted Rogers School Of Management, Ryerson University Plans To Offer World Class Courses To Indian Students

23 Aug 2010


Ted Rogers School of Management is the largest undergraduate management school which is the heart of the country’s financial hub and Indian origin students account 10 percent of the enrolment. According to Ken Jones, dean of Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University has plans to offer world class courses to Indian students in retail management, hospitality and tourism and forge tie-ups with Indian universities. For this, an Indian Strategy group which includes Indo-Canadians has been set up to chalk out its plans for India.

"We have an India strategy group and I expect that we will be going to India in the new year with our India strategy in place," Jones told the sources. "India is on our radar for a whole series of reasons: not only that we have a large Indo-Canadian community which is a good fit. But we have made a commitment to linking the Ted Rogers School to that country. We have a large number of Indian students (born here) and India is a fast growing economy," the dean said.

He added that, "Though Indian origin students - numbering more than 500 - account for about 10 percent of the undergraduate courses, there are not many from India. But there are quite a few from India in the Masters courses. These numbers will grow as the government has taken initiatives to have more international students." He also mentioned that his school will concentrate on tie-ups with universities in highly accessible big cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata.

Unlike other countries, he said, Canada offered "a welcoming environment" to international students. "But there has to be addressing of some fundamental issues of visas and residence for international students. These are for the government, not for the school. But if Canada is serious about global competitiveness, they have to do it.
