Our Events

Social Night

MISA’s first social night of the year took place at the Loft in September, and the turnout was impressive!

MISA Connects was a small scale networking event that hosted Telfer Professors and company representatives from IBM, PeopleInsight, and Pythian at the Albion Rooms in October.

MISA Connects II

MISA Connects II will be taking place on March 27th at Desmarais. There will be recruiters from companies like Shopify, Brookfield, and PageCloud, which is perfect if you’re still looking for a summer internship. Food and drink provided!
