Boston University Course with Scrum and Agile Focus Sets Students Up for Career Success
Ralph Covino Ph.D., Professor in the Information Systems Department at BU, wanted to reinvigorate the curriculum to be more Agile focused. He understood that having Agile knowledge was increasingly important to recruiters as they looked for jobs post-graduation, and those who had Agile experience during internships were getting a head start over those who didn’t. Therefore, he decided to create a new course called Agile Development Methodologies. “My students tell me that if recruiters see them talking Scrum and Agile, they are more likely to get to the next level in the interview on their job quest,” said Professor Covino.
