How has your degree from UVU helped you in your current position?

"The business intelligence classes that I took gave me an understanding of the latest techniques and technologies. While I was still in school I was actually able to apply them in my daily work here at Fishbowl."

Industry view of UVU graduates

"Information Systems and Technology students from UVU are known to be well-rounded with in-class and real world experience. I believe this comes from UVU’s push for engaged learning and from the excellent internship program offered. This kind of knowledge is sought after in the industry because it helps students transition into their careers and be productive team members right from the start."

Advice for new students

"Say hi to the person sitting next to you in class, get to know your professors, and build on those relationships while in school. Learning how to communicate effectively and network will benefit every area of your life. Take advantage of the services the school has to offer. Talk to your counselors, do an internship, and get involved. Soak up every opportunity and enjoy every minute of it. It’s worth it!"
