What are people saying about the IM Program?

  • What are students saying?

    "New ideas are better. We lay the groundwork for the future thinkers of the business world."

    This spring, MIS faculty hosted the MIS Senior Celebration, a congratulatory reception for their graduating seniors. While at the reception, students answered a series of questions about their likes, dislikes, and suggestions relating to the MIS program.

  • What are faculty saying?

    "At this time, we are exploring three major areas for curriculum improvement – mobile computing, social media analysis, and business analytics."

    Department Chairman Prabhudev Konana gives us some insight into the changes in the IM Program in this year's January e-newsletter.  Faculty members Katie Gray, Joshua Rock and Clint Tuttle, along with IM Program Director Sirkka Jarvenpaa visited some of the top MIS programs in the country to investigate ways of improving the program's curriculum.

  • What are our corporate partners saying?

    “I believe that the Texas Information Management program is one of the most holistic in the country."

    Romil Bahl, CEO of PRGX, received his MBA from the University of Texas, McCombs School of Business.  Romil still claims his ties to the University, and spoke at an IM Symposium in 2010. He states, “I believe that the Texas Information Management program is one of the most holistic in the country. It offers research and deep insights on global sourcing, technology, the management of information, processes, innovation and, of course, problem solving and entrepreneurship. It is this combination that will allow the McCombs School to remain truly differentiated.”
