Information Systems

 

 

Borders are virtually meaningless in this early 21st century global economy. As a future graduate with an Information Systems major or minor degree, you will be confronting global issues and will work in internationally-operated companies. "Wake up and face the earth!" T. Friedman advised us in his bestseller ‘The World is Flat’. An international experience will provide you not only with essential skills to work effectively in industry, education, or the public sector but will touch and change all the facets of your life by the experience of living in another culture, will strengthen your character, and will broaden your mind.
