The UA MIS program recently hosted the 2009 Spring Forum meeting. Around 30 meeting attendees were present representing 23 companies across several industries.
The MIS program at The University of Alabama holds a Forum meeting once every semester, or twice yearly. The Forum meeting is held to assist the program in several different ways, including industry-focused curriculum refinement and graduate placement.
The MIS Forum also contributed a combined $100,000 in scholarships to the UA MIS program. These scholarships were presented by the Forum executives directly to our students at the MIS Scholarship Banquet.
The UA MIS program plans to release in the coming months a video produced with the help of individual Forum members. This video will appear on the UA MIS YouTube.com channel and should better describe the unique advantages the UA MIS program provides to students.
