Seminar Series

The Friday MISRC Seminar Series involves a variety of speakers and events that deal with topical issues related to IS/IT management and emerging technologies. Each year, we plan these seminar events in conjunction with the interests of our Corporate Partners. Some of our most memorable Friday Seminars in the past several years dealt with topics such as managing customer relationship management projects, international outsourcing, knowledge management, information security and privacy, electronic markets, and geography and time-independent solutions in IT-based service operations.

We offer webcasts for the Friday MISRC Seminar Series for Coporate Partners. Additonally, we retain all of the slides and presentation materials for our members who are not able to come to the Carlson School for a given event.

Typical Friday Seminars draw between 20 and 120 attendees, depending on the topic chosen, the time of the year, and the weather!
