This is a great time to start or build a career with information technology! According to a recent study sponsored by Lockheed Martin and Merck, 80% of information systems undergraduates are placed in a job at graduation. In addition, jobs in data analysis, data science, information systems consulting, etc., are often among the highest paid, with the best work-life balances. At the Paul H. Chook Department of Information Systems and Statistics, we help our students learn how to thrive in the information economy, and we take the fullest possible advantage of Baruch College’s career placement services and alumni network.
