Management Information Systems Association (MISA)
MISA is a student-led organization at the Telfer School of Management specializing in the academic, professional, and social development of MIS students. Through collaborative networking events and exclusive social nights, MISA promotes the study and growth of information systems in every business sector while also representing the students who hope to soon approach this industry as confident professionals.
MISA fosters an environment where students feel empowered to succeed in the professional world while also establishing important connections with not only their fellow members, but also with professionals within the business and technology industry. Since the foundation of this club, our mandate has always focused on delivering high academic development, professional growth, and employment opportunities for students pursuing careers in the growing technological workforce.
MISA enriches the academic excellence of Telfer students, specifically those who study MIS, by facilitating their relationships with professors and other faculty members. The Association also commits to increasing enrollment numbers to the new MISA program at Telfer by promoting the benefits of studying MIS at the university level.
Through intensive programs and collaborative networking events, MISA gives Telfer students the necessary opportunities to connect with experts in the MIS industry. In return, business and technology companies have access to the top MIS students at Telfer who are ready to enter the workforce.
MISA offers exclusive social nights that reaches out to our members and allows them to meet, connect and develop student networks in a casual environment. These social nights strive to bring value to the educational experience of MISA members that goes beyond their academic and professional careers.

MISA will look to be hosting table hours during frosh week where MISA will provide information to incoming students, as well as try to recruit exciting new members looking to develop their Management Information Systems and Analytics network.
MISA looks to host social nights at various locations in Ottawa. Our social nights hope to foster and build long-lasting relationships among the different members, non-members, and executives at the University. MISA social nights will prove to be a fun time, where the students can take a break from school and get to know their peers on a more personal level!
