MIS Student Projects

Most college students spend four years in the classroom learning skills but never really getting a chance to use them until they graduate. Not the students in MIS 374 at the McCombs School of Business. These undergrads work with real clients who need real results, while still in school. “It’s the best learning experience,” says Eleanor Jordan, Management Information Systems professor at the McCombs School. “All the theory, all the concepts are valuable, but until the students have actually applied them, they don’t believe me.”  After completing three smaller team projects early in the semester, students spend the last 11 weeks as part of a five-person group creating and executing actual technology solutions for real-life clients.  (Source:  MIS 374 Web Page)
