Business Information and Technology Society
The Business Information and Technology Society (BITS) is a student-run organization for students who are studying decision sciences, information systems and business intelligence and analytics at Saint Joseph's University.
Our goal is to foster a deeper understanding of data analytics and business intelligence. As an organization, we explore career opportunities by sponsoring networking events, on-campus guest lectures, field trips and classroom speakers.
BITS also maintains contacts with local organizations that actively hire for summer internships, co-ops, part-time jobs and full-time employment. Participants gain a wealth of real-world experience and applications to business intelligence and data analytics theories learned in class.
Generally, our meetings occur on Tuesdays or Thursdays at 11 a.m. or 5 p.m. in Mandeville Hall, but due to COVID-19, we are still holding some meetings virtually. To stay up to date on activities and other announcements, follow us on Instagram (@sju_bits) or join our email list by reaching out to Mike Collins (email@example.com).
