Medaille College’s Information Systems Program Renews as CompTIA’s Authorized Academic Partner

  Medaille College has renewed its CompTIA Authorized Academic Partnership. This academic partnership allows the college to provide its BIS/MIS to students seeking various Information Systems certification vouchers from Comp TIA at a reduced rate that saves the student 50 percent of the total cost for the exam.

Students are encouraged to take the certification exam upon graduation from Medaille’s Bachelor of Business Administration in Information Systems (BBA-IS) online or the Management Information Systems (MIS) traditional programs. Medaille provides the certification testing services through Pearson VUE testing centers.

Professor Jonas Patricko, Program Director for BBA-IS, Information Systems at Medaille, stated, “Being a CompTIA (Computing Technology Industry Association) Academic Partner is extremely beneficial. It allows us to provide the opportunity for our students to obtain these highly-regarded, industry-standard certifications in addition to their prestigious Medaille College degree. This provides our students the possibility of obtaining a higher-paying, in-demand career position by having the needed college degree and specialized industry certification.  It’s a win-win situation!  Anything we can do to help our students succeed is what we stand for.”
