A BCIT Business Consulting Project provides Business Information Technology Management students the opportunity to work over a 10 week period with an organization to solve an information technology problem or challenge. Students work in a team of three or four to identify potential opportunities, conduct research, and recommend effective IT solutions. The end result for your organization is a comprehensive written report and an oral presentation outlining the student team’s recommendations to improve information technology effectiveness. The Business Information Technology Management program accepts approximately 8-10 project proposals per year.
