Program description

The Management Information Systems (MIS) major prepares students for entry-level careers in business computing and managing information technology (IT). The major gives students both in-depth technical skills needed to design, implement, support, and manage information systems, as well as the breadth of knowledge to provide integrative, technology-based solutions in all business functional areas. Unlike majors in Computer Science or Computer Engineering, the focus of the MIS major is on the use of IT to store, retrieve, communicate, and deploy data and information to solve business problems.

Students develop competencies that enable them to analyze businesses processes and organizational problems, identify information needs and develop solutions to address those needs. They will learn how to generate, manage, distribute, and use information that best leverages an organization's IT-enabled infrastructure, MIS graduates work in positions such as business system analysts, software and application developers, system architects, web-masters, database administrators, data analysts, IT consultants, information security managers, technical support specialists, and often become project managers and entrepreneurs.
