First name: Joel Question: Dean Boronico, I am a marketing major in the SOM. I hope to become a marketing account executive upon graduation from NYIT. In the week of Oct 1-5, you gave me and 19 other students the opportunity to go the NYC for Advertising Week, free of charge. I truly cannot thank you enough! I was able to meet marketing executive of major companies and I believe the networking event will lead to a summer internship. Thanks again! Student Marketer, Joel Mercedes Joel, that's wonderful news! I think it's important to provide students with these opportunities and other Student Advancement initiative and when students have experiences like the one you had at Advertising Week, it's worth all the effort!

You can then plan your class schedule so that your concentration change will minimally impact your anticipated date of graduation. Your advisor can help to ensure that you are able to get the courses you need.
I would like to study a Master degree in Management Information System (MIST). I have a Bachelor degree in Computer Information System with a GPA of 4.03 out of 5. I've read in NYIT website that you don't require GRE for this program. I just want to make sure if that's right, and when can I apply. Abdulrahman, you are not required to take the GMAT if you have a 3.0 or higher out of 4.0 for your GPA. It looks like you qualify! As for the Master's Programs, the School of Management offers an MBA with concentrations in Marketing, Finance, or the Decision Sciences. You may apply at any time.
