Teach­ing and research have long been con­sid­ered the two pil­lars of the uni­ver­sity endeav­our. UOIT is equally com­mit­ted to research inten­sive­ness and excel­lence in teach­ing when it opened in 2003, forg­ing a rep­u­ta­tion as one of Canada’s newest research-​intensive insti­tu­tions. This is uncom­mon as most higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tions start with a focus pri­mar­ily on under­grad­u­ate teach­ing, fol­lowed by research years later. In 2003-​04, UOIT had 0,000 of research fund­ing, which increased to more than .2 mil­lion the fol­low­ing year with a small fac­ulty com­ple­ment of only 24. In 2008-​09 alone, uni­ver­sity researchers secured more than .1 mil­lion in exter­nal funding.

UOIT’s Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy offers inno­v­a­tive degrees in both com­merce and infor­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy. The pro­grams pro­vide a use­ful bal­ance between the­ory and applied learn­ing and may be enhanced with a vari­ety of spe­cial­iza­tions to meet your needs. The com­bi­na­tion of award-​winning pro­fes­sors, career-​focused pro­grams and state-​of-​the-​art facil­i­ties posi­tion the grad­u­ates for suc­cess in the 21st-​century workplace.
