International Paper visited UA on February 24th to discuss their business culture and work environment. It was one of the more unique companies to have for an AIMS meeting. Their presentation included the history of International Paper, the relationship they have with the environment, and the livelihood of Memphis, TN.
Two UA MIS alumni discussed the hands-on job experiences they have had within International Paper. It was explained how much of an emphasis International Paper has on keeping internal talent. In order to facilitate this, International Paper allows employees to move around a career path that suits the individuals personal skills and interests. After the presentation, MIS students were able to ask questions to the presenters to get an even deeper look into what it is like to work for International Paper.
