Ryerson University

The following description is provided by the institution in the working language at that institution.

Ryerson University is on a path to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. A distinctly urban institution in the heart of Toronto, Ryerson is committed to serve societal needs and engage its diverse community. A combination of theory and professional learning provides graduate and undergraduate education that is distinct from other universities. That difference is reflected in the program mix and the reinforcement of classroom lectures with formal contact with business and industry, laboratory work, field trips and work experience in the professional community. Innovation and entrepreneurship are an important focus, supported by Ryerson’s unique zone learning model. The model enables students to gain first-hand, practical experience in creating an initiative or venture with potential for social or economic impact from the ground up.
