Anita has designed the management information systems major for future or current business leaders and managers, with a strong focus on the global, social, cultural, and economic importance of the Internet and associated technologies. “Since job prospects in information technology are growing faster than average,” she says, “knowledge of how technology is used to achieve competitive and strategic goals is valuable for all business careers.”
Anita finds teaching adult learners especially rewarding because of the students, faculty, and staff that she works with at North Park. She has extensive consulting experience in the areas of programming, databases, statistical analysis, and outcomes research.
In addition to information technology and e-commerce courses, Anita also teaches mathematics and statistics. She received a PhD from DePaul University.
