CIO Canada and Universities Share IT Business Innovation with MBA Programs (May 28, 2003)
ITX University Partnership Brings Case Studies into the Classroom
In June CIO Canada magazine and eight of Canada’s leading business schools celebrate their fifth year bringing case studies based on Canada’s most innovative applications of business and technology into MBA classrooms.
The ITX University Partnership is the only Canadian initiative of its kind designed to build strong relationships between university MBA programs, especially those with programs focusing on information technology, and businesses and governments with demonstrated excellence in the use of IT.
Case studies and teaching notes are developed based on award-winning private and public sector submissions to the ITX Awards, a nationwide competition developed by CIO Canada to recognize and celebrate the success of Canadians in creating world-class IT solutions – and are made available to MBA programs across Canada. Four awards of merit and one overall winner are selected each year representing the “best practices” and “best strategies” of enterprises committed to making themselves and Canada globally competitive.
The eight universities participating in the ITX University Partnership are:
Athabasca University – Centre for Innovative Management
Concordia University – Decision Sciences and MIS Department
McGill University – Faculty of Management
Queen’s University – School of Business
Simon Fraser University – Management Information Systems Area, Faculty of Business Administration
University of Calgary – Faculty of Management
