Since 1948, Ryerson has built its reputation on the strength of its curriculum, and now offers over 100 graduate, and undergraduate programs with a total enrolment of approximately 43,000 students. Guided by a bold academic plan, an ambitious research agenda, and a commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship, Ryerson has become the most applied-to university in Ontario relative to available space, and its reputation with business and community leaders continues to rise. Building on the success of the DMZ (ranked 3rd globally among university-based business incubators) Ryerson has pioneered a unique experiential program called ‘zone learning’—encouraging students work with like-minded peers from diverse disciplines and community groups.
Located in downtown Toronto – the 4th largest city in North America – the Ryerson campus is immersed in urban, cosmopolitan surroundings and is steps away from major centres for health, business, entertainment, fashion, industry and design. This proximity affords amazing opportunities for learning and research. Ryerson University is recognized as a leading institution for research and innovation, being ranked the top institution for undergraduate research in Canada in 2014. Over the past decade, the university has invested in heavily in innovation and is now home to 125+ research centres, institutes and labs.
