Meet Jerry
Professor of Information Systems

Education: Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Master's Degree of Business Administration and a Master's Degree of Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Doctorate from North Carolina A&T University.

What Lead You to Your Current Job: I grew up wanting to be an engineer. I got my first experience with computers in the late 1970s before there were college degrees related to information systems. After I got an engineering degree, I continued working on advanced degrees in information systems. While working on my doctorate, I did some teaching and found that I really enjoyed it.

Job Duties: I teach at the University of Indianapolis where teaching students is more important than performing research. I teach four classes a day. I focus on the business impact of information systems rather than the technical aspects.

What I Like About My Job: I really enjoy teaching and interacting with students.
