MIS Meet the Firms - Information for Firms

The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business MIS Meet the Firms Night is a unique opportunity to connect the best and brightest MIS Aggies with potential employers and industry leaders for networking, internships, and full-time career opportunities. This event is an ideal venue for employers to enjoy exclusive and personal access to skilled and knowledgeable MIS students from the Huntsman School of Business. Students who attend the MIS Meet the Firms Night do so after careful study and preparation involving résumé workshops and career exploration activities sponsored by our award-winning student organization, the Association of Information Systems (AIS).

Through dynamic and innovative courses of study, Huntsman MIS students are strategically poised to enter the competitive job market of information systems with cutting edge skills in business intelligence, database management, project management, web development, IT strategy, and technical communication.

 Huntsman MIS students learn much more than just theory and abstract concepts; instead, they are trained from the outset to demonstrate a “get-it-done” spirit and “shovel-ready” mentality. This culture and commitment enables our students to enter the workplace ready and able to hit the ground running. Over the years, Huntsman MIS graduates have made an immediate, positive impact on the enterprises whom they serve.

Here are just some of the benefits that your firm will enjoy by participating in the MIS Meet the Firms night:

  • Focus recruiting efforts on the exact talent you wish to acquire for your organization
  • Receive a packet of student résumés beforehand so you have ample time to vet each one and identify the most promising candidates

  • Interact with students who have developed business solutions to real-world problems through projects in areas such as web development, data visualization, and database management
