Well on his way to becoming a Distinguished Alumnus of Tomorrow, this past summer Brian Christian was awarded a coveted and prestigious internship offered by Compuware Corporation. Midway through he said that Marygrove prepared him very well for the challenge he faced at the computer tech services company.
Brian, who is in the college’s Honors Program, is working to complete a dual degree program—a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems and a Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in Accounting. He has a 4.0 grade point average. His honors projects have received high praise “…for the sophistication of his legal briefs and for the comprehensiveness of his analysis of the impact of new legislation dealing with accounting fraud,” according to Jane Hammang-Buhl ’68, chairperson of the Business and Computer Information Systems Department. She also cited a project where “…his ability to weave his readings into class discussion demonstrated a subtle understanding, not only of the material, but also of the group dynamics of sharing insights in a classroom setting.”
