of Michigan’s School of Information.  The topic?  A free-ranging discussion about how my students at West Shore Community College may be able to transfer in as juniors and earn a BSI degree.

What’s important about this upper-classman major?  Part of the answer is in its excellent record of graduate employment.  According to the BSI program’s Career outcomes page,

Recent BSI graduates are working in technology, consumer goods and manufacturing, entertainment, health systems, startups and financial services, or pursuing additional education. Among the companies at which they are employed are Dish Network, Ford Motor Company, Lowe’s, the Kellogg Company, Microsoft, Yahoo and the U-M Ross School of Business.1

The School also reports that

100% of our graduates go on to great careers with average starting salaries of $70,000 (up from $61,000 in 2015).2

You may also want to review the 2017 BSI Employment Report.

Plus, the School of Information understands what it can be like to transition from a small community college to a major research university—so it runs a community college summer program designed specifically to help ensure your academic success.

If you are a West Shore student now, and you think you may be interested in entering the BSI program at Michigan, take a look at this, and then contact me.
