Help Support WISC 2019!

About WISC  

WISC is a single-evening event that provides Western students with an opportunity to network with faculty and professionals from business, IT and related fields. The event is structured to enable students to gain meaningful insights into navigating the exciting and ever-evolving tech industry. In addition to facilitating the development of professional networks, WISC also features a panel discussion that allows students to take a peek into the latest trends, innovations, job outlooks and areas of future growth in information systems and technology. The topic selected for this year’s panel is Big Data – including an exploration of business applications, analytics and security.

The WISC conference is co-hosted by current MIS students on the IT Leadership team and the Department of Decision Sciences. Last year's event was a huge success, with over 130 total students and professionals in attendance. This achievement would not have been possible without the generous donations of sponsors like you.

In order to make this year’s WISC a reality, ITL must raise funds to cover expenses including but not limited to catering, venue-booking, marketing, professional outreach and event materials (including name-tags, decorations, etc.). Your donation will help ITL cover these expenses and directly benefit Western students by ensuring WISC 2019 goes off without a hitch. We appreciate your contributions and look forward to delivering the largest, most impactful WISC yet!

Thank you!  We hope to see you April 18th!
