Western Michigan University students are participating in TechNext, an immersive learning experience that takes them outside their comfort zones and into technology hubs in California. This year, President Edward Montgomery joined the students at several companies included in this transformative learning experience.
Department of Business Information Systems
In the Department of Business Information Systems, you will begin to build your resume on day one through your courses, which will have relevant, real-world projects that give you hands-on experiences that employers value. Those experiences increase your bandwidth as a problem solver and will be pivotal in your search for externships, internships and full-time job opportunities.
Experiences such as company visit or events through the Business Analytics and Information Technology student organization will get you ready for a future in IT.
Business Information Systems degree programs that mean business
Businesses are growing their positions in information technology more quickly than they can fill needed roles. This shortage of qualified professionals means that you will have many opportunities for a fulfilling career and may be entertaining multiple job offers even before graduation! Whether your interest is in cybersecurity, systems design, software implementation, analytics or e-commerce, we have a program that will fit your talents and the future you are looking to create.
Enhance your experience with focused resources
Whether you need career advice, personal and professional development, or would like to connect with other business information systems students, our department gives you a wide breadth of resources so you can take full advantage of your WMU education.
