MIS Department Hosts Area High School Students

For release:  February 24, 2012

Fogelman’s Department of Management Information Systems hosted 573 high school students from Memphis City Schools and Shelby County Schools Feb. 17 for a daylong business skills competition.

The students, members of Future Business Leaders of America, participated in events in public speaking, interview skills, web design, spreadsheets, database applications and project management. Students who came in tops in the competitions were recognized at an awards banquet at the Holiday Inn-University of Memphis Feb. 21. Fogelman Dean Rajiv Grover spoke to students at the ceremony.

“This activity provided the department with an opportunity to acquaint the high school students with the campus and will hopefully encourage many of them to consider the Fogelman College while making choices for a major after graduation from high school,” said Dr. Lloyd Brooks, professor and chair of the Department of Management Information Systems.
