Toronto School of Management welcomes its first students

Toronto, 15 March 2018 – Toronto School of Management (TSoM) has welcomed its first students who started their courses earlier this month in Canada.

On Friday 2 March, the students took part in an orientation day held by TSoM’s team in Toronto. They were introduced to their courses and the school by Zulekha Ladhani, the Student Services Manager, receiving a warm welcome and useful information on their future studies, the city, and its culture.

The school officially launched in October last year, offering programs in accountancy, business, and hospitality. These first students – coming from across the world, including Jamaica, Nigeria, India, Korea, and Mexico – have been enrolled across all of the five courses currently available.

Throughout the day the new students had the chance to meet each other, sharing their stories and expectations. Angel, a chef de partie from Mexico, has selected the Advanced Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management Co-op to help him take the next step in his career: “I have some experience in hospitality, but I want to gain the skills and knowledge to become a restaurant or hotel manager.”

Fellow Mexican student David will be studying for the Diploma in Business Administration Co-op: “A good knowledge about business can open many opportunities for my career. Toronto is an amazing city and I hope to be able to find a job here in Canada.”

Gurpreet, from India, was impressed with the enrolment process and the opportunity to study in Canada, saying: “The staff were very cooperative and made things easy. The city has a great environment, and I want to study Business Management here to start a career with a big multinational company.”

Ehsan Safdari, Managing Director of Toronto School of Management, said: “Having officially launched only a few months ago, it is great for us to welcome our first students. As one of the biggest cities in the country, Toronto provides an incredible avenue to those seeking to pursue higher education, and we’re delighted that these students have chosen us to further their studies.”

As a Designated Learning Institution (DLI), the downtown-based school is open to domestic and international applicants, with a campus that can accommodate over a thousand full-time students.

The school works with industry leaders to design and deliver innovative, career-centric programs to provide students with the right combination of academic excellence and practical hands-on experience. The teaching will be supported by work experience with partners, where the theories learned in the classroom can be applied directly in the real workplace.

“At TSoM we work to equip our students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their careers. We are looking forward to starting this new adventure, and we are already planning to add more programs to our portfolio in the future.
