Information & Decision Systems Andrew Westfall Q2: How did the MIS program(s) at SDSU    help prepare you for your career? A: In my personal experience, a degree in Information Systems does more  to prepare you for a career in business than any other business degree  or certification. Specifically, the IS program gave me the skills and  knowledge to break down business problems into a set of  requirements, and subsequently address each of those requirements  with methodical and researched solutions. IDS prepared me for a  career that is not constrained by a job description.  I am confident that  wherever I go I will always be able to depend on the skills I developed  during my studies at SDSU.
