Class of 2016 (B.S.), Class of 2019 (M.S.)
Ronald Harrison graduated from Coastal Carolina University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in information systems and a minor in business administration. After graduation, he accepted a job in the SC Attorney General’s Office as an IT technician and later worked at a law firm, also in IT. He completed CCU's Master of Science in information systems technology in 2019. Harrison works with AIG, where he is an internal IT auditor for General Insurance.
Harrison said he entered the MSIST program at Coastal because the program focused on two things: security and data analytics. The program allowed him to take all of his courses online without having to come to the campus for any reason, which was necessary because he worked full time and did not live in the area.
The program was a great experience for me, I was able to have a happy balance between school, work...without being overwhelmed. It allowed me to work at my own pace but I realized I would have to utilize my skills of time management and be proactive to get the work completed. This program is great for people working full-time careers who want to obtain their master’s degree.
