Today, there were no classes. Instead, we had a field trip.!

30 students from the MBAst center made a visit to the Advanced Solutions Innovation Centre of Bell Labs in Kanata, the heart of Ottawa's technology cluster.Bell is Canada's national leader in communications.The innovation centre is a collaborative venture between Bell Canada and its strategic partners, the Ottawa-based Wesley Clover companies that include Mitel (voice over IP), March Networks (video security over IP),NewHeights (converged voice, video and data software products that add value to IP PBXs) and Ubiquity (Session Initiation Protocol based communications software for fixed and mobile service providers).

Three Queen’s MBAst grads, currently working at Bell Canada (A program manager and 2 associate directors),showed us the center.We were split into 3 groups and after a quick introduction in the main boardroom,the groups were alternated with a presentation, demonstration of the solutions and the facilities and Bell offered.

The Bell Canada team indicated that they might be interested in having a few MBAst students working on assignments/projects for them. That would be a good learning experience.!
There are loads of assignments to be completed. Biz Stats looks like a toughie currently !
