Increasing Student/Corporate Engagement
Janicki, Thomas N.; Cummings, Jeffrey W.
Information Systems Education Journal, v15 n5 p37-44 Sep 2017
Increasing dialog and interaction between the corporate community and students is a key strategic goal of many universities. This paper describes an event that has been specifically designed to increase student and corporate engagement. It describes the process of planning and executing a targeted career day for information systems and information technology majors. The results have been an increase in full time placements and internships for both undergraduate and graduate students. Additionally, the reputation of the program quality among employers has increased as well. Internally, career day has assisted in recruiting new majors to both programs.
