Our program offers multiple experiences outside the classroom for students to gain knowledge about the management of information systems.
Students can build a professional network and gain valuable on-the-job experience by completing a professional internship. This supervised work experience can significantly improve a student’s skill set and résumé and often will lead to a full-time job. Students have access to Mays Business School’s Career Management Center and other university resources to assist in identifying and securing internship opportunities.
