Why Study Information Systems at Le Moyne College?

Information Systems (IS) – the study of people, organizations and technology – provides the technology backbone of organizations today. Studying Information Systems at Le Moyne gives students an opportunity to make a difference in the world and in their community, while learning valuable skills in experiential learning settings.

A Le Moyne student could be working on a class service learning project with the Syracuse Samaritan Center, developing a project management plan for a new volunteer scheduling system, or developing unmanned aerial systems (UAS) architectures for Arctic emergency response or GE power plant installation and construction. In a first internship, students might work with health information systems at Upstate Medical University or St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse, learn how to be an influencer in a social media firm, or roll out new technologies at the Syracuse Rescue Mission. Subsequent internships could take the student to United Technologies’ Digital Technology Accelerator in Brooklyn, BNYMellon’s Data Science Center of Excellence in Oriskany, NY, or launch the student on a fast-paced Digital Technology Leadership Development Program at Lockheed Martin, IBM or GE, in Chicago, Atlanta, Boston or San Francisco.

In all of these experiences, the Le Moyne IS student’s grounding in ethics and Jesuit values provides the touchstone for student experiences, classes, internships and full-time roles. In short, then, the answer to the question, ‘Why study Information Systems at Le Moyne College?’ is that Le Moyne IS students have the technology, management and ethical foundations to make a difference in the world.
