Careers in IS Night
BITS holds its annual event, Careers in IS Night, at the end of every September. This event is one of the highly anticipated events of the year, with attendance of 150 students last year. Last year, the event brought in 8 highly touted employers and BITS hopes to build on that this year.
For several years, BITS has been partnering with Microsoft and MicroStrategy in an effort to showcase the latest and greatest in Business Intelligence and how it has been transforming how businesses operate. Recent presentations included overviews of the latest Microsoft products including Windows 8 and Windows Phone.
