The comprehensive STEM-designated degree program, Bachelor’s of Science in Information Systems Management, offers students an opportunity to develop the expertise necessary for the successful deployment of new technologies in many diverse fields. In this program, students learn how to design, operate, and evaluate competitive technology alternatives to meet an organization’s needs. Two ISM students relay how they plan to apply their skill sets to meet the demands of an evolving technological workplace.
Boukare Kanazoe, ISM ‘22
Boukare Kanazoe first wanted to study Information Systems Management because he wanted to work as a security analyst. Upon enrolling in the course, Information Security Management, Boukare began to rethink his approach to information security and risk management. He has since developed an entrepreneurial vision and plans to launch a consulting firm and “construct a world-class information security system for organizations.” Becoming a computer information and systems specialist as a result of his degree, Boukare’s main goal is to apply the skills he has learned in service to the community at large.
But his focus is not all business. As a Community College Transfer Opportunity Program (CCTOP) scholar, Boukare looks to continue his academic journey with a master’s degree and then a Ph.D. in the applied sciences. He credits NYU SPS’s diverse community, rich curricula, and the professors he has studied with in the Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies (DAUS), with fueling his drive to succeed and attain his goals. Coursework and classes really excited his interest, as expert professors bring industry level experiences into the classroom. Professor Antonios Saravanos, who coordinates the ISM program, emphasizes, “Our faculty have extensive industry experience and have worked for or currently hold prominent positions in some of the top organizations in New York City, for example, Morgan Stanley, AlticeUSA, Outbrain, Mutual of America Financial Group, Citi, Hiscox, Oscar, to name a few.”
