Arsalan Shaikh - MSIS ’09
Technical Engineer, Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.
“MSIS program opened up doors for me. While in school, I landed my first IT job as a security specialist. Just 3 months after graduating, I joined Brocade Communication Inc as a Technical Engineer.
Professors at Lewis University not only used books but also shared their real life experiences. They also gave students an opportunity to share their experiences. We were not limited to only books and homework but did a lot of lab work, which made us think outside the box.
George Jordan, MSIS ‘09
Senior Information System Security Analyst, CMass Technologies, Inc.,
“The MSIS degree has contributed to my success by providing the knowledge and skills required to establish a security consulting division in a firm that originally offered accounting and managed services. The MSIS curriculum is in tune with what is happening to the information systems today and that the curriculum prepares the student to analyze and respond to current and future attacks.
Kyle Hess, CISSP – MSIS’08
Electronic Crime Instructor, Des Moines Area Community College
“The MSIS program was integral in me starting a new career. I would not have even been considered for my current position without graduating from the MSIS program. The night classes allowed me to pursue my degree while working full time. Real-world relevancy of the curriculum was a huge plus as well.”
Veo Taylor, MSIS’09
“The MSIS program is designed to fit the schedules of working adults. All of my IS courses were valuable because they all gave me different perspectives pertaining to information security.
I came into the program thinking that information security addressed technical issues only. My eyes were opened when learning about the business, government, and social aspects of IS.From these aspects multiple careers paths are opened within the IS discipline. I also found that instructors really do care about their students. This makes the learning atmosphere even more conducive.”
Felinda E. Holmes, MSIS ’09
Systems Administrator, Will County State's Attorney's Office
“My job and personal life was so hectic, but because of the flexibility of Lewis’ MSIS program, I was able to schedule the majority of my classes around my own schedule. The instructors are truly professionals in their field. Their knowledge and real world examples have provided me with information that will last a lifetime. In fact, my success in the program has given my career in information technology a new life.
I was so excited about the program that I decided to take an additional class beyond my studies.”
Nancy Kolb, MSIS ’08

“The MSIS degree helped me obtain a new promotion and with additional responsibilities in the area of Business Continuity and SOX Compliance. Information Security was covered in every class as it related to the course subject matter.”
Amy Maskiewicz, MSIS ’09

“I strongly believe that being a student in the MSIS program at Lewis University gave me the formal training and confidence I needed for my current position. The combination of managerial and technical courses offered in the MSIS program gave me a broader understanding of the operations of a technological environment. I found the MSIS program to be diverse and current offering courses which are required in real world situations. I feel the professors and administrators continuously strive to keep the course curriculum challenging and relative to what is expected of today's IT professionals.”
