Minor in Management Information Systems

  • Emma Planitzer

    “I graduated IUP in May 2019: MIS dual track major, marketing minor, also in the Cook Honors College. I joined AMIS as a second semester freshmen and found myself serving in almost every position, including president in my senior year. The network of students and faculty remains strong today—a unique aspect of our small department! Immediately after graduation, I started working at Dick’s Sporting Goods as a business analyst, then one year later moved to an Assistant Global Sourcing and Product Development manager for Outerwear and Outdoor Apparel. Data is everywhere, and the world needs more people who can interpret it, gather it, and organize it.”
