BTM was introduced in 2009 at the undergraduate level in response to the feedback that new ICT graduates didn’t have the business skills needed by today’s organizations. Working together with academic institutions, industry and sector associations, TECHNATION Future Workforce Development defined a set of learning outcomes and competency standards required by industry, drawing heavily on relevant international standards for similar programs. TECHNATION remains the voice of industry into the BTM and supports the BTM secretariat
BTM programs are represented in several universities and colleges across Canada. These programs equip graduates with the right technical and business competencies to be ‘job ready’ and help lead and support the safe, effective, competitive use of information technologies in business.
For more information on BTM and the corresponding BTM Forum, a marquee organization that provides a unifying voice to the BTM profession as well as accreditation and certification to educational institutions, academics and professionals, please visit btm-forum.org.
