Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Program information

The combined Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Information Technology Security (MITS) program is a graduate professional program that prepares students to work in the high-demand field of IT security management. The courses within the MBA program enable the degree holder to provide organizations with a business management skill set that helps raise the competitiveness of the entity, leading not only to a comparative advantage but also higher-skilled and thus higher-income jobs within the province. The MITS courses prepare graduates to work in the high-demand IT security industry. The MBA-MITS combined program not only emphasizes excellence in graduate-level business and IT security knowledge but also soundness in the soft skills (i.e., interpersonal relations, team building and communication) and in business and IT ethics. The program adopts a project method that provides students with the experience to apply core course materials to a substantial project in the workplace during the latter part of the program.
