The MIS practicum course is the capstone course for the MS-MIS program. This course is geared towards providing the student with practical experience in the MIS area through an MIS internship with an external organization or an MIS project within the university under the academic supervision of a faculty mentor in the MSS department. The course will allow the student to integrate knowledge and skills acquired in the MS-MIS program through their application in a practical setting.
The MS in MIS program at the State University of New York at Buffalo has a job shadowing program in place for students. Industry mentors liaison with students giving them exposure and access as observers to organizational activities such as project and corporate strategy meetings. Students are afforded the opportunity to visit several organizations in the Buffalo Niagara Region to get a first hand view of the business environment.
