On Friday, February 8th, UConn’s OPIM Department will be hosting a Management Information Systems (MIS) Meet and Greet for students studying MIS or interested in the major. The Meet and Greet will be held in the OPIM Department’s Gladstein Lab, BUSN 391 from 2:00-4:00 PM.
For students new to the MIS major, the Meet and Greet will be a perfect opportunity to learn more about the major, the OPIM Innovate initiative, and the Information Management Association (IMA). In the Gladstein Lab, attendees will be able to acquaint themselves with some of the Department’s emerging technologies, such as virtual reality headsets, microcontrollers, and 3D printing tools. These technologies can then be later explored through various workshops, which are hosted by OPIM Innovate throughout the semester.
The MIS Meet and Greet will also be a great way to get involved with the Information Management Association (IMA), a student-run organization that hosts events related to information technology. IMA frequently invites industry professionals to talk about information technology, their companies, future job opportunities, and other career-related topics.
T-shirts and other giveaways will be up for grabs for those who attend. Please join us for a closer look into the world of MIS at UConn!
