What Are Our MIS Summer Interns Up To?
In the May MIS Bulletin we provided a list of companies that have hired/placed our MIS students for either full-time or summer internships.
We thought it would interesting to find out how some of these internships have been going and invite you to read more about the students experiences and "lessons learned."
We thank the students for their contributions and we thank the companies for providing these (and other) excellent opportunities!
