What can UMSI students do?
The University of Michigan School of Information prepares graduates to be leaders and change agents working across all industries, connecting people, information and technology. Our students excel in finding effective, innovative ways to address the critical information issues facing our complex, global and increasingly digital world. While students may specialize in an area such as data science, digital archives or human computer interaction, all UMSI graduates develop a diversified skill set and leave the school well equipped to assist employers with their information management needs.
