This past fall, DBSA asked you what type of workshops you’d liked to be apart of for our conference this year. The top results were: Facebook Ads, MailChimp, and Shopify! Therefore this winter, all students are welcome to join us for hands-on workshops led by your experienced fellow peers.

If you can’t make all the workshops, don’t worry! We chose to make our conference a week-long experience to fit your schedule. Sign up for what you can make, or what you’re most interested in. But don’t forget to come to the last day of Tech Week. Recent grads from the Digital Business Management program will be joining us to discuss their career paths and answer any questions you have for them.

Register ASAP, as all the rooms have limited available capacity. It’s going to be a great way to learn, acquire new skills, and network with your peers and successful alumni!
