Being a MIS Master's Student

A big “thank-you” to students in Eve Cran’s spring MIS Project Management class who produced videos on being an Eller international student. These videos will help potential international students gain perspective as to the Eller experience at the University of Arizona.

Jay Fielder (project manager) shares, “We needed a project for our project management class and thought about Eller’s prospective international student population. We knew that there was great interest in Eller programs because of its excellent education, but international students have no idea what it is like to live in Tucson and be a part of our community. So we made these videos, showcasing our current international students, to help demonstrate what is so great about being a part of the Eller community."

"I learned how U.S. corporate world works which I had no idea about."
"I liked the use of cases that put you in the "shoes" of a CIO, CTO or IT manager."
"The team projects and working together were awesome."
