The MCIS Doctoral and Junior Faculty Consortium
The MCIS Doctoral and Junior Faculty Consortium seeks to help Information Systems doctoral students in the latter part of their doctoral studies and IS faculty in the early stages of their career to develop an effective career plan based on their personal and professional goals.
