Have you ever wondered how you could make your business become more efficient and effective? How about improving and streamlining your business work flows and practice? Ever think about your company’s current use of IT and how it may be improved to meet your business goals?
If you answered yes to any of the above this MIS Business Workshop is for you!
The Management of Information Systems (MIS) Department, a top-ten ranked MIS program at the Eller School of Business, has partnered with Nextrio (a Tucson based IT service firm) to offer a free MIS business workshop. The workshop is designed to inform local companies about what IT can do for them and how our students can help achieve company IT goals by creating an IT plan specifically designed for them.
The workshop will focus on what MIS is and how a company can leverage the business and technical skills of an MIS Master's student as either an intern or full-time employee. In addition, the workshop will inform attendees about the basics of hiring international students.
This business workshop is being conducted in conjunction with a network design case competition for MIS Master's students. Students have been broken into teams and will be given a complex business problem from the Pima Council on Aging (PCOA.) Student teams must develop and form a solution then present their results to judges formed of local professionals.
After the morning business workshop, please join us for lunch to meet students and MIS faculty members.
Following lunch watch the final round case competition presentations and experience first-hand the quality and competence of our students.
Local companies are welcomed to come to all three of the events or just one event.
There is no cost for these events but R.S.V.P. is required.
If you believe that other companies can benefit from this MIS business workshop and/or final presentations, please feel free to inform them about this event!
