Student Organization Business Innovation and Technology (BIT) Gains Traction in The Schmidthorst College

Written by Madison Bannister, Schmidthorst College Communications Intern

A student organization in the Schmidthorst College of Business has been rebranded and is making big strides. The Business Innovation and Technology (BIT) organization, formally known as Information Systems Organization (ISO), was reimagined by current undergraduate business students and now gives students the opportunity to attend professional development events, learn new skills, connect with fellow students interested in technology, and enjoy fun events like game nights.

Matt DeAmon, a junior studying Information Systems, helped to shape BIT’s messaging and new vision.

Members of the student organization BIT pose for a picture at a recent meeting.

“With technology now an integral part of every aspect of business, we felt it was important to highlight its reach in all business specializations, not just information systems,” DeAmon said. “Our meetings are worthwhile for students with a variety of majors and interests, so we wanted a name that reflected that.”

So far this semester, BIT's meetings have covered analytics, cryptocurrency and fintech, and cybersecurity.

“BIT has introduced me to guest speakers and industry leaders who have exposed me to different career routes I could take post-graduation,” said DeAmon. “It also has allowed me to refine my professional skills and knowledge, and I hope it will continue to do the same for others."

If you’re interested in joining BIT, their meetings are held from 6-7 p.m. every Tuesday in Maurer Center Room 116. To stay up to date, follow their Instagram @bitbgsu!
