A proud academic home of some 4,300 students, 95 full time faculty members, and over 30,000 alumni, we believe that better business practices mean a better Canada and that a better Canada means a better world. Our vision for a better Canada is articulated around four pillars: A Wealthier, Greener, Healthier, and Happier future for all.

Telfer is one of only two Canadian institutions holding accreditation from all three major international sanctioning bodies: AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. With regards to research productivity, Telfer researchers rank in the top among Ontario and U15 schools on various metrics: number of publications per faculty, number of citations and the average citations per faculty. Telfer has also had success rates higher than both uOttawa and national averages throughout the last 5-year period, reaching in 2020/21 its highest level of research funding over the previous 5-year period.

A testament to its teaching and research excellence, Telfer is currently the home of a Tier 1 CRC in Social and Inclusive Entrepreneurship, a Tier 2 CRC position in Data Analytics for Health Systems Transformation in addition to 23 named professorships and fellowships.

Our entrepreneurship courses at the undergraduate level include, for example, The Entrepreneurial Society, New Venture Creation, Social Entrepreneurship, Strategic Entrepreneurship, Family Business, and Innovation Management. Our entrepreneurship courses include experiential learning opportunities and are connected with the activities of the University’s E-hub (e.g., Startup weekend, Elevator Pitch, and Startup Garage) that support student ventures.

Our course offerings are informed by our faculty’s strong research in several areas related to entrepreneurship, including (alphabetically): business incubation, community entrepreneurship, family business, inclusive entrepreneurship, innovation management, science and technology entrepreneurship, and social entrepreneurship, among others. Our entrepreneurship faculty members publish their research in journals such as Academy of Management Review, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Family Business Review, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of Management, Organization Studies, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and Strategic Management Journal.

Telfer also offers two research-oriented graduate programs with a focus on entrepreneurship. First, Telfer’s Master of Science (MSc) program offers a specialized track in entrepreneurship.
