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. MISA fosters an environment that empowers students to succeed in the corporate world and ensures lasting connections among our members as well as professionals within the business and technology industry.
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’s first social night of the year took place at the Loft in October, and was a great first engagement between our members, non-members, and executives!
The first MISA Connects of the year was held in November and was made up of two parts: a Python workshop and a speaker panel. The interactive Python workshop was an intro to Python for students interested in starting out with the programming language. The engaging speaker panel held representatives from KPMG, RCGT, and Invest Ottawa.
MISA Connects II will be taking place February 8th from 6pm – 8pm in Desmarais 4101. This round of MISA Connects is a recruiting event, which is perfect if you’re looking for a summer internship, a full time position, or even some connections in the industry. Food and drink provided!
