How did the MIS program at TROY help prepare me for my career?
In my personal experience, a degree in Information Systems does more to prepare you for a career in business than any other business degree or certification. The technical skills from IS classes coupled with business skills from business courses provided me with tools to succeed in today’s dynamic business environment. The business curriculum enhanced my understanding of the various functional areas within organizations and how IT affects them. As a result, I am able to communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical personnel. This ability is essential for interacting with clients/management executives at various levels. The managerial, technical, and communication skills I developed have allowed me to take on dynamic roles within the workplace and are the basis for achieving my professional goals.
MIS program prepared me for a career that is not constrained by a job description. I am confident that wherever I go I will always be able to depend on the skills I developed during my studies at Troy.
