IBM MASTER THE MAINFRAME 

2016 IBM Enterprise Systems Educators Workshop

This is an exciting time for Enterprise Systems! Companies are actively looking to hire and retain students who have enterprise systems skills. We are pleased to announce that the IBM Academic Initiative is once again offering a no-cost, comprehensive workshop this summer for educators who are interested in integrating enterprise systems into their curriculum. Whether you are already teaching these topics and want to learn about related topics, or you are a beginner and want to find out how to get involved, this workshop is for you!

This event is being held in conjuction with the 2016 Enterprise Computing Community Conference located at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York. You get two events for the price of none!
