Dr. Alex Citurs

In a recent discussion about achieving success in today’s job market, Dr. Alex Citurs, Assistant Professor of Business Information Systems (BIS), highlighted the increasing importance of an amalgam of skills for jobseekers. He explained that the Business Department provides its students with opportunities to develop marketable strengths in more than one area: “Employers are looking for combinations of skills. We try really hard to facilitate the combination of skill sets that employers are seeking for career success.”

Dr. Citurs pointed to Todd Anderson (’14, BUS) as an excellent example of a former student who is using a combination of skills from BIS and Finance to build a successful career. A senior financial reporter at Prudential Financial, Todd will speak and take questions about “Integrating BIS and Finance Skills in BIS Finance Careers” on Tuesday, February 21, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Science Building (301). All are welcome.
