"The thing I enjoy most about the CIS program, and MCB in general, is that you have so many opportunities to prepare yourself for life after college. Every day I work with the technology that I will be using in a business environment and I am able to work with professors who not only teach but also currently work in the CIS field. The CIS program has helped me feel prepared for whatever path I may take come graduation."
