My experience has been great in the Information Systems program because being in this program gives you the overall exposure to all the models of IT.

You are free to take courses from business analytics, computer science, even MBA if you feel like it. [HOST]

So, tell us a little bit about what sort of experience students can expect to get from you when focused on information systems. [ROBERT ROKEY]
Well the students can expect a very intensive, technical program with a large exposure to business. They can expect faculty that is going to challenge them. From me personally, they can expect somebody who is going to bring them into the fold and help make them into the future Bearcats we want them to be. [HOST]
Take it from Professor Rokey. He’s made a living out of making systems run better. He’s taken that wealth of experience and knowledge, and he’s ready to get your education running perfectly.

So, what kind of job prospects are there for MSIS students? [ANGIE LUCAS]
The job prospects are very promising. Employers are actually seeking out these students because they have the skillsets that cross over business and technology. [HOST]
So, as you can see, our MSIS program has a lot to offer. Guess that’s why ED Universal named us a top 40 program in North America. And here’s a little more for you. My experience with the information systems program so far has been wonderful. As demanding as it is rewarding. One of the reasons students should pick the MSIS program in Lindner College of Business is because they’re not a number. We take time selecting the candidates we admit to the program. They are going to be a name and a person, not a number. Students in the MSIS program take a variety of different courses in business. So things like accounting, finance, marketing, in addition to their information systems courses that dive a little bit deeper into the more technical skills ERP, software development, project management and things like that. So, they really are able to be that liaison between the business sector and the technical teams within the companies. Many of our graduates are going to be in, what we call, client facing positions. So that means we work on things like how do you hold a conversation, how do you handle a business meeting, how do you do a resume, how do handle an interview. So we try to make them comfortable in a business setting so that they blend in. And it allows them to apply their expertise where needed. Coming into a masters program for the first time I didn’t know exactly what to expect from the professors. UC has great faculty. UC has in-house, as well as adjunct professors. Every faculty member I have experienced in the IS program has been legitimately excited to help students learn. You can at any time reach out to them, and they are always there to help. You get so much value from these people who want to share their experience, and get us, the students, in the best position we can be in for graduation. The opportunities for learning are endless. And it has been wonderful. Thank you for considering our program. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us.
