Nicolas Griffin smiling and looking into the cameraThe opportunity to have a mentor highly established in IT was one of the key reasons I chose the MSIS program. My mentor gave excellent insight specific to my career trajectory, which helped me identify and set new goals. Talking through her experiences leading companies and organizations through digital transformation helped drive home concepts we learned in our courses. Having an experienced mentor offer curated advice while acting as a sounding board for my own ideas has helped improve my ability to be an effective leader.”

Partha Ray

Director, Business Applications,

Partha Ray smiling and looking into the camera“My time in the program has already equipped me with a lot of knowledge of database concepts, distributed cloud systems, and enterprise application concepts, information security and GRC concepts, product roadmap management, and not to mention hands-on experience with data mining and analytics. I feel as a result I have been able to boost the business component of my leadership role, and really build out the technical component of my leadership role. The easiest way I can validate this is by sharing that I achieved my promotion to the Director role halfway through the MSIS program!
I strongly believe that the MSIS theme of technology balanced with business needs has provided me with a great basis to further my career into an eventual VP / CIO role.
