TechConnect is the MS-MBA Association's annual student-run technology business conference. This year, we are partnering with the Entrepreneurship Club with a theme of Platforms and the Sharing Economy. We hosted a forum where technology experts, entrepreneurs, and students can share their opinions and hash out solutions to the question and solution of how Platforms are disrupting the technology world.
We want to host a forum
The MS-MBA Association is a student-run organization at Boston University’s Questrom Graduate School of Business that serves as a conduit for students and alumni of the MS-MBA Program as well as technology enthusiasts. TechConnect was entirely student organized and run, with students reaching out to their networks to get speakers. We were able to have panelists from Priceline, HoughtonMifflinHarcourt, HourlyNerd, Lyft, MediaMath, and Spot. The keynote speech was delivered by the VP for Global Infrastructure at Disney.
The conversations were engaging and there was a definite career focus throughout the day. Many of the panelists said on the spot that they were hiring interns and full time employees!
