Discussion of MIS Programs/Job Opportunities by James Cappel

     Declining MIS Majors at CMU
     Cause could be a lot of jobs are going to India
     In 2003 there were 113 MIS Majors, now in 2006 there are only 62
     If this trend keeps going, there may not be any MIS graduates to hire
     Possible solution is to have better information being put out there to students
      about the MIS major as well as prospective students.
     Jim sent out an email to the corporate MIS Advisory Board member asking them
      for their input on how to increase MIS majors.
     Some responses were to just get the word out to MIS students and prospective
     Another thing we need to overcome is the negative stories in the media about all
      the jobs going to India
