Research

The Department of Management at the University of Toronto Scarborough consists of a community of scholars who are deeply engaged in teaching, research, consultation, and writing in a variety of topics in Management and Economics.

Our faculty engages in nationally and internationally recognized research which advances the frontiers of knowledge, serves the interests of our community, and brings new insights to our students.

A number of our faculty are cross-appointed with the Rotman School of Management and the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources (CIRHR).
