Current and future students of the Master of Science in Business Analytics and the Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Analytics programs at Texas A&M University-Commerce have a new scholarship opportunity thanks to the North Texas branch of Information Systems Audit and Control Association, or ISACA.
“We are very grateful to ISACA. The scholarship is recognition of our business analytics research which involves information systems and education excellence within our department. It is also motivation for us to keep improving the quality of our programs. ISACA is very supportive of our new B.B.A. and M.S. in Business Analytics,” said Dr. Chris Myers, department head of Marketing and Business Analytics.
This highly selective scholarship is given only to students from universities with prestigious IT research and education records. The awarding of this scholarship to students of A&M-Commerce celebrates the Department of Marketing and Business Analytics’ excellence in business analytics and cyber security education.
ISACA is an independent, nonprofit, global membership organization founded in 1969 that engages in the development, adoption, and use of globally accepted industry-leading knowledge and practices for information systems. They provide their diverse constituency of more than 140,000 professionals worldwide with the tools they need to achieve individual and organizational success. They also provide members with education, resource sharing, advocacy, professional networking and other benefits at a local level. The local chapter has been active in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 1975 and has members from General Motor Financial, J.C. Penney, and Capital One among others.
To be eligible for this scholarship, students must be members of the Department of Marketing and Business Analytics student organization. Interested students should join the “Marketing and Business Analytics Student Organization” through ManeSync via eCollege.
