Perspectives

The MIS program at WWU is one I would recommend to anyone. Many of the classes allow hands-on experiences, and the professors are willing to go out of their way to help you succeed. There are also numerous ways to get involved with the program outside the classroom. Not only do you leave with a solid education, but also with a close group of friends who have shared the same experience. William Woods is a great place to be with endless opportunities.

My William Woods University MIS degree gave me the skills to be successful in a competitive, challenging and ever-changing world of information technologies. Through advanced learning classes, e-commerce classes and three internships I received priceless learning opportunities that cannot be replicated in a textbook. The MIS professors sit down with you and map out your classes to maximize your educational experience and guide you towards your chosen career path. They take ownership of your development, and I wouldn't be where I am without them!
