Major Activities:

MIS Advisory Board: As the UMD MIS program continues to grow, we are striving to continue to put out the highest quality graduates while maintaining a steady growth of new students into the major. Begining October of 2012 have started the "MIS Advisory Board", which includes professors, students, administration members, and business industry leaders. This is the first MIS advisory board in Minnesota.  The main goal the board is to create a transparency between what employers want in graduates, and what we teach them.

This board will also help promote "Professional Development" activities within our school. These activities will include speeches from industry leaders from a variety of fields; workshops including resume building, interviewing skills, and LinkedIn training; training provided by our partners to advance technical skills; and lectures in which students can advance their people and processing skills.

MIS Tutoring Sessions: The MIS Club provides hands-on assistance in FMIS 2201 (intro to IT in business), 3220 (Database Management), 3232 (Visual Web Programming), and 3222 (Systems analysis and design) in addition to the services offerered by the tech assistance program in LSBE 212.  This tutoring progam is student driven and works directly with professors to recieve up to dat information on due dates, assignments and project material.

UMD mobile app: The MIS club is working with a multitude of on-campus groups to create the first academic focused University of Minnesota mobile app.  This application will focus on reducing the "Freshman wander" and will serve as a common groud for events, news and student deals.
