Certifications are fast becoming necessary for entry into today's tough job market. As the certification video explains-just
select the picture above- many courses in the University of Mount Olive's MIS major/minor track to industry certifications. This affords students with the unique opportunity to get certified! In addition, the University of Mount Olive is now a authorized
Pearson Vue testing facility which allows students to take their certification tests at UMO. Furthermore, students can become exam proctors. Also emphasized in the video is the value of an IT (MIS) major or minor- technology goes with any major and in my expert opinion, it should be the number one choice for most students in complimenting their specific field of study. Whether someone is majoring in math, science, education, criminal justice, business or ag business, technology will play an integral role in one's particular career. Thus, a minor is MIS can "seal the deal" in getting
not just a good job but a GREAT ONE! Moreover, our MIS Minor allows one to choose various tracks- (cyber security, database, programming, and in the near future-social networking). For example, one course that everyone can benefit from is the Advanced Productivity Tools course which teaches students to apply software to increase personal productivity by managing contacts, calendars, schedules, and appointments; collaboration; data handling, including table creation, manipulation and queries, sorting, reports; advanced presentation tools; cloud computing; web searches, social networking for professionals and application integration. To reiterate- TECNOLOGY GOES WITH ANY MAJOR!
