WHAT IS THE OBSA?

The Okanagan Business Students’ Association (OBSA) is comprised of students registered in courses at the Okanagan School of Business (OSB) – any student is eligible to join the committees. The operations of the Association are chiefly carried out in the Okanagan College campuses of Kelowna, Vernon, Salmon Arm and Penticton. The OBSA — a registered society under the Societies Act — is administered centrally through the Kelowna campus.

The Association has two key aims: to connect Okanagan School of Business students with the business community, and to provides a means for OBSA members to develop their leadership and business skills outside of the classroom. To accomplish these aims, the OBSA holds several events throughout the school year, ranging from large-scale networking events to smaller thought provoking conversation panels.

LATEST EVENTS & NEWS

The 2019 OBSA Conversation Panel was filled with insightful experience and outlook on the topic of entrepreneurship in the Okanagan. Commentary from Nikki Csek, CEO of Csek Creative; Jason Richards CEO of Minga and Okanagan College's Entrepreneur-in-Residence; and Renee Wasylyk CEO of Troika Developments made a diverse representation of what it means to be an entrepreneur.

TESTIMONIALS 

"Through my academic career, OBSA events added value to my time by facilitating meaningful connections with professionals in the community, creating opportunities to network with my peers, and help relieve some of the stress of completing a degree. Keep it up!"

"As a local small business owner I have found great value in attending OBSA events as I have been able to make amazing connections with individuals in my community. I truly think these events are a great outlet for students to be able to grow their networking skills in a safe and supportive space amongst their peers."

"The OBSA is an avenue for me to apply what I learn in class to the development and execution of events that connect students with the local business community. The team of OBSA members is an inclusive and motivated group that helps me grow as an individual and that shares the common goal of making the most of our time at the Okanagan School of Business."
