We visited Nike, eBay, and Cloudability

To cap off our term dedicated to exploring technology in the business world, we visited Nike, eBay, and Cloudability.

At each company, we received an office tour, were able to field questions with senior employees, and make lasting connections with professionals of various industries. Our visit was perfectly spread to cover a wide variety of environments. We saw the inner-workings of Nike – one of the largest companies on the planet – but we also got to speak with senior employees and executives at eBay’s mobile development office and the rapidly expanding start-up, Cloudability. One of BOTA’s missions is to prepare its members for the working world. We believe that getting a unique perspective on these companies, and speaking with pivotal members of each organization, provides the exact type of passionate injection that students need to make a successful “working world” transition.

You won’t want to miss out on our exciting adventure next term!

We’re currently planning a similar trip to Seattle – exploring professional, operational management standards around one of the most rapidly expanding business arenas in the United States. We’ll see you in Lillis 255 on Wednesday, April 12th for our next meeting.

Week 1: Welcome Back!

This term, we will be focusing towards Information Systems and Technology.

To kick-off the new year, Kyle Holmberg, VP of Technology at BOTA and a senior student in the Computer and Information Science program, will be leading our first meeting on January, 18, 6:00 – 7:00 pm, Lillis 255. He’ll be leading an interactive tutorial on MySQL and Databases in general.

BOTA will be tabling at Lillis Atrium tomorrow (Thursday, January 12th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm), so stop by to learn more about our upcoming events.
