Featured Graduates

Nana Adomako, '21 MSIS

In one word, amazing. When I arrived at EMU, I had recently moved from Florida, I was unemployed, my mother had totaled my car, and I couldn’t even get an apartment so I can attend school. [Three years later] I left with two master’s degrees and offer for full-time employment from a fortune 50 technology firm. I can honestly say the experiences I had at EMU helped shape me into the man I am today. The problem-solving skills I learned, such as critical thinking and logical reasoning continually help me today in both work and life events. I learned  the obstacle truly is the way from the challenges faced at EMU. From starting school part-time, with student loans and no transportation, to becoming a full-time student and earning a graduate assistantship, EMU provided challenges to prepare me for life and I will be forever grateful.

Haider Alrammahi, '19 MSIS

In 2012, my family and I started a new journey by moving to the US looking for new opportunities. In 2015, I attended several open house events in Michigan to explore graduate programs that would complement my background study as a computer engineer. One of those events was at EMU where I met people from the College of Business (COB) who discussed the different graduate programs that the COB offers. Initially, I was thinking about an MBA, but later I decided to get a degree in a field that was not too far from computer engineering. I liked how the Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) program had classes that provide both information systems and business skills. Read more about Haider Alrammahi.

Nabeela Jaffer, '15 MSIS

I enrolled as a part-time graduate student in Eastern Michigan University’s MSIS program in 2011 and graduated in April 2015. I was one of the nontraditional students, passionate about earning a graduate degree while raising children and working as a small business owner. My bachelor’s degree was a 3-year program in Computer Science from a university in Pakistan, and I did two additional undergrad semesters at another university in Texas. The bridge program at Eastern Michigan then provided me with the opportunity to enroll in a graduate program that allowed me to explore and fulfill my passion for pursuing higher education.

Nitish Kulkarni, '15 MSIS

When I arrived at EMU, it was confusing! I had no clue what was going on! With help of the staff in the graduate programs office, I was able to get going. The first semester was challenging and it was difficult to adjust to the culture. I had a goal of finishing as quickly as possible as I had 60 credits to complete [Nitish came to EMU as a Bridge student, having earned a three-year bachelor's degree rather than four]. My second semester was better. Read more about Nitish Kulkarni.
