Kyle Hamilton (MIDS ’17)
“I discovered this incredible sense of community and mutual support,” graduate Kyle Hamilton said about the online Master of Information and Data Science program. “I have felt more connected to you nerds online than I ever felt in my two undergrads.”
Alumna Holly Liu (MIMS 2003) recounted her journey from applying to the I School to eventually cofounding gaming giant Kabam, Inc., now a billion dollar company.
Dost, cofounded by alumna Sindhuja Jeyabal (MIMS ’16), is an educational nonprofit providing India’s illiterate mothers regular audio calls with instructions to prepare their children for kindergarten.
The company was founded in 2013 by I School alumni Ljuba Miljkovic (MIMS 2010) and Thejo Kote (MIMS 2011)
These stories of alumni giving back exemplify the commitment of our alumni long after they have left South Hall.
We followed up with the very first graduating class of the Master of Information and Data Science degree program and were gratified to see the impact of their degree.
