They want to hire individuals who are passionate enough about the field to put in the effort to better prepare themselves for the workplace after graduation in the areas that might not be covered explicitly in the curriculum such as leadership and professional network building. Student Chapters represent AIS’s commitment to help students become the leaders of tomorrow.
