The purpose of the MIS practicum is to improve your understanding of what it takes to be an IS expert and facilitate your development as an expert in your area of specialization – and in doing so to accelerate your efforts to move toward your career goals. Through a variety of readings, assignments, and activities you will learn about the nature of expertise (in general and in IS). You will also develop the knowledge and abilities you need to be an IS expert within a given industry and specialization. Prerequisites: MBA/MS-MIS and MIS students only. Note: MBA/MS-MIS and MIS students should register BMIS 2999 MS-MIS Practicum Lab during their first year of the program and register BMIS 2056 MIS Practicum 1 during their second year of the program.
