Here at Smith we have selective classes, which are basically required electives. You have to take one of a group of classes in a few different areas. One of these areas is information technology. I am taking a class called Strategic and Transformation IT, which focuses on evaluating and making IT decisions in the business world. One cool thing about the class is the professor brings in industry professionals to speak to the class on their experience in IT. Today we had a Senior V.P. from Amazon.com and last week we have the CIO of Chevy Chase Bank. These visitors to class bring the theory behind the topics we discuss into a practical business setting which is very beneficial.
