Information Systems Management to host Mylan speaker

Sunday, November 12, 2017

Every month the Information Systems Management (ISM) Program, within the School of Business, conducts a knowledge sharing seminar centered around technology and the businesses it enables. The series is called "Technology @ Lunch." The purpose is to increase awareness, provoke critical thinking, and enhance our understanding of the latest trends in technology. 

Students, faculty, and the public are invited to participate in these free seminars where industry leaders come on campus and guide 20-30 minute technical discussions.  Not only are the seminars an opportunity for knowledge sharing, they are also networking opportunities for our students to interact with exemplary professionals in our community.
