Growth • Visibility • Reach

Business Technology Association (BTA) is a student-led organization at the Telfer School of Management specializing in the education and promotion of technology and information systems to enthusiastic young professionals. Since our inception in 2011, our mandate has focused on delivering high academic development, professional growth, and employment opportunities for students pursuing careers in the growing technological workforce.


BTA fosters an environment that empowers students to succeed in the professional world while establishing important connections between our members and professionals within the business and technology industry.

Academic Success

BTA strives to enrich the academic journey of Telfer students, especially for those who are interested in a career in MIS. Our club also commits to increasing enrolment students to the BTM program at Telfer by promoting the benefits of studying MIS at the university level.

Professional Development

Through networking and panel events, BTA provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to connect with experts and explore their interests in business technology by hosting workshops which are focused to help students with their skill learning in a practical manner.

Social Development

Through a series of social events, students, alumni and professionals are invited mix and mingle without the pressure of the usual networking events. In so doing, we encourage conversations that extend beyond academic and professional experiences.



With information technology and data analytics becoming an integral part of our society, especially within business, our objective continues to be: creating awareness of the business technology and analytics sector, and equipping our members with the key skills sought after in the business technology field. We focus on creating professional development opportunities through networking and industry speaker panels, hands-on skill building workshops, case competitions, and innovative career development opportunities. To continue to build on the considerable strides of the previous executive teams, BTA relies on its industry partners to deliver the best networking and skill-oriented workshops. In return, we will actively seek to create the right platform to connect you with the best and brightest at uOttawa, and to promote your organization on campus.
