First Graduate Certificate in Information Systems Awarded

6-28-11 - The Mississippi State University College of Business Department of Management and Information Systems awarded its first Graduate Certificate in Information Systems to Shahryar Naqvi (pictured on left). Naqvi participated in the program on campus but this fall the first courses are being offered to allow online students to participate in the same program.

"The job outlook for IT-related jobs in the United States is strong," says Dr. Merrill Warkentin (pictured on right), Professor of Information Systems at Mississippi State University. "Our nation's companies (large and small) and other employers (governments, non-profits) will need project managers, network managers, website designers, and other new employees with knowledge of IT systems and the ability to work with budgets, people, systems, and deadlines to help them achieve their goals."
