Intel Corporation (also known as Intel, stylized as intel) is an American multinational corporation and technology company headquartered in Santa Clara, California (colloquially referred to as "Silicon Valley") that was founded by Gordon Moore (of Moore's law fame) and Robert Noyce. It is the world's second largest and second highest valued semiconductor chip makers based on revenue after being overtaken by Samsung,[2][3] and is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers (PCs).

Intel Corporation was founded on July 18, 1968, by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, and widely associated with the executive leadership and vision of Andrew Grove. The company's name was conceived as portmanteau of the words integrated and electronics, with co-founder Noyce having been a key inventor of the integrated circuit (microchip).

What is the purpose of MISA?

Management Information Systems Association is a student-run academic organization serving California State University, Sacramento. Our goal is to help our members build a dynamic network in their field of study. We provide a platform where our members can connect with CSUS faculty, alumni and potential employers through a series of events and workshops held over the course of every semester. At MISA we aim to inform members of potential career paths, Sac State events, and education opportunities, all while forming valuable networks between students, faculty, alumni and companies.

How does MISA achieve this?

Every week, MISA meets in the California Suite on campus. During these meetings, we engage in interesting conversations with other students, faculty, alumni, and representatives from the private and public sector such as Chevron, Intel, Deloitte, FBI, and various departments within California State government. Topics of conversation include experiences in current and past courses, latest trends in the MIS field of study (data analytics, cyber security, organizational behavior, and other emerging technologies), which companies are hiring (and which ones are firing), anything else that comes to mind!

Although we focus primarily on MIS, AIS, and CS majors, all majors are welcome!

Every semester top tech companies visit us to see what Sac State has to offer. If you are interested in presenting or finding out more information about MISA please, send an email to
