After taking the MIS introduction class with Professor Dedeke I was hooked. I loved how MIS incorporated technology and business. The demand for the degree in the workforce is high.

Technology is ever changing so it is difficult for any institution to truly prepare its students for real-world applications of concepts. But D’Amore McKim provided a solid foundation which I leveraged in order to be successful in my co-ops.
