The Center for the Management of Information Systems supports a number of program where students can interact with members of the corporate advisory board in formal and informal settings.
The case competition is an educational program offering Texas A&M students an opportunity to sharpen their analytical, presentation and teamwork skills. The competition also serves as an excellent forum for board members to interact with students in an academic setting.
CMIS Summer Workshop
Formerly known as the leadership retreat, CMIS Summer Workshop is a two-day activity in August for undergraduate students. Participants attend guest speaker presentations about various leadership related topics, participate in small and large group team building activities and get to know fellow students on a more personal basis. Representatives from board member companies are invited to a dinner and ice cream social for a chance to meet new students.
Women in IT Conference
The women in information technology (IT) conference is designed to help female students network with other women who are currently building their careers in the information technology industry. Senior executives, managers, professionals and new hires share insights with students on a range of topics including landing a job, advancing their careers, finding a mentor and new trends in technology. The 2017 Conference was March 3 in the MSC of Texas A&M.
The speed networking activity gives students an opportunity to meet one-on-one with representatives from board member companies for a seven-minute networking session. They then rotate until they meet with every company.
