“My CU Denver professors have published their research in top information system journals and are familiar with the latest and greatest technology. Every faculty member was willing to lend a helping hand whenever I needed it. The department also provided financial support for me to attend various conferences, which helped me to keep abreast of all the latest research being conducted in the field and interact with top information systems professionals from companies like IBM and Microsoft.” – Bidyut Hazarika (’16), Assistant Professor, Western Michigan University​
