Management Information Systems

Management Information Systems (MIS) allows students to apply information technology to business problems focusing on finding solutions.

Students who major in MIS learn how to use information and communication technologies to support management at all levels and in all business functional areas with the information they need for planning, control, and decision making. MIS experts attempt to bridge the gap between information technology and people's needs. Equipping students with the necessary skills, students will be able to work in highly sought-after careers such as systems analysts, business application programmers, web developers and database administrators. Students have the option to specialize in two areas - business analytics or information security management.
