Management Information Systems Leads the Way: Partnering with Connecticut Based Businesses
Adapted from an article first printed in the New Britain Herald on April 1, 2013

(Marianne D’Onofrio, New Britain, CT) The Management Information Systems (MIS) department within the
School of Business at CCSU recently joined with The Hartford in piloting The Hartford’s first Technical Case Competition.
The MIS department stepped up to the plate and facilitated the formation of interdisciplinary student teams for
the competition. Five teams of students majoring in six CCSU departments (Accounting, Computer Science, Finance,
Management, Management Information Systems, and Computer Engineering & Graphics Technology) spanning three
schools (School of Arts and Sciences, School of Business, and School of Engineering and Technology) competed in
solving a technical business problem posed by The Hartford’s Technology Leadership Development Program Case
Competition Team.
The business problem required competing teams to build a web application for the Blue Devil Financial Services
Corporation (BDFS). The CCSU teams worked diligently for two weeks building the application, which required a
business implementation plan, web page, and an illustration of how information would be passed to a database. The
teams presented their final product to five judges within the Architecture area of The Hartford. The winning team
presented a fully functional application and was complemented by the judges on their ability to clearly present both
their understanding of the business problem and technology. Members of the team were: Nicholas D’Onofrio, Suzanne
