Our first-year students receive TedPoints for engagement beyond the classroom, with one TedPoint earned for each hour of engagement across our school.
Why? Because we know that you can maximize your first-year university experience as you access supports beyond the classroom while learning, building your network and a stronger sense of community with other students and the school. Whether it’s a one-on-one chat with a Career Consultant, Learning Strategist or Student Advisor, taking part in a TRSS student group-run event, attending tutoring sessions, Bootcamps or attending any TRSM events students are rewarded with TedPoints.
In your weekly FFB emails that you receive Tuesday mornings, you can keep track of your TedPoints in the top banner. As you continue to accumulate TedPoints throughout the year you will be invited to TedPoint Rewards also seen in your weekly FFB emails. These emails come from Ted Rogers School Fit For Business <email@example.com>
TedPoint Rewards are given to students who accumulate TedPoints to provide exclusive opportunities to learn and engage with senior leaders and alumni who share industry insights and knowledge to better prepare you both as a business student and professional.
Students can check their weekly Ted Rogers School Fit for Business emails to see if they are a recipient of TedPoint Rewards, and how many TedPoints they’ve collected so far. We reward students with both group rewards and there are also individual rewards given.
TedPack group rewards:
- Exclusive chats with senior leaders and alumni to share industry knowledge and insights with the opportunity to learn, ask questions and build your network
- Access to a sold-out Bootcamp of your choice
- One-on-one with an industry professional whose expertise is marketing students to employers
TedPoints are a way for you as a student to track your own engagement but also to showcase that engagement since each TedPoint is equal to 1 hour of engagement. So whether it's in your cover letter, resume, interviews, LinkedIn, or for your co-op application - you can showcase this engagement. You also have an opportunity to be recognized as a Top 10% Engaged student at the end of your first year. Scroll down to the Top 10% Engaged Student section to learn more.

See below for the experiences of some of our TedPoint Reward session attendees at various events.
Senior Leader Chat
Featuring André Serero, Founder and Lead, Top 200 Program
“This event was definitely worth attending and it was great to hear advice on how to accomplish goals in the industry from someone with a lot of experience like André!”
- First-Year Business Technology Management student
Senior Leader Chat
Featuring Graham Sogawa, Executive Director
“I attended a Ted Rogers School event as one of the top TedPack groups for engagement, and it was well worth it. Graham was an incredibly approachable and genuine person, and he shared a lot of valuable and truthful information about his experiences in networking, recruitment and his role at TMU. The information was incredibly valuable, and Graham’s authenticity made the event all the more worthwhile.”
- First-Year Hospitality and Tourism Management student
Senior Leader Chat
Featuring Medhat Sedarose, Manager, Co-operative Education
“A big shoutout to Medhat for making this the most comfortable and inclusive event, and for answering questions about co-op that I didn't even know I had. This event has fully and finally made up my mind about applying for the co-op program and making great use of the opportunity to earn valuable work experience and connections both locally, and hopefully internationally. When they said deep dive, they meant deeper than the Mariana Trench.”
