Located in Downtown Toronto, Ryerson offers two MBA degrees - the Global MBA and the MBA in  the Management of Technology and Innovation.  Through these two degrees, there are a variety of specializations.  The tuition amounts vary as all students will need to complete at least 11 courses.  Students without business education could be required to complete an additional 5 foundational courses.  The class size is relatively small, with ~70 students entering the Full-Time program and ~55 students entering the Part-Time program in 2014.

Employment Summary

3-Month Placement Rate: N/A
Average Salary: $85,000
Average Salary Increase: 35%

Ryerson doesn't release very detailed career statistics.  The fact that they do track some numbers but don't release the 3-month placement rate would lead me to believe it is below 80%, and possibly well below.  The average salary listed is quite good and in line with what one would expect for a program based in Toronto.


A one-year program based in Toronto with tuition less than half of the other Toronto based schools makes Ryerson a very interesting option.  They don't have the reputation or career services of the better known schools, but for individuals with strong professional experience Ryerson offers an accredited program in Toronto that let's you stay connected and keeps your student loans down.  Without the experience, I'd encourage anyone considering Ryerson to connect with alumni and see what the true placement rate is like.
