History

In 1989, a group of students who studied Business Administration with specialization in Information Technology founded the student chapter of the 'Data Processing Management Association.' Its purpose was to expand their knowledge in the field of IT across the university campus and the College of Business Administration. During the following years, the teacher Awilda Valle was the Chapter advisor.

The struggle for the improvement and benefits for students, after seven years, the DPMA Student Chapter became the 'Association of Information Technology Professionals' in 1996. The directors of the chapters of this time were: Prof. Lucyann Fernandez, Prof. Awilda Valley and Prof. Rafael Olivencia.

After eight years, the need for positive change was reclaimed by the student community. A group of seven students elected by the student body of the concentration of Information Technology decided to act on this request. On December 7, 2004, the student chapter of the 'Association for Computing Machinery' Business Administration was created.
