Program Overview 

The management information systems (MIS) curriculum is designed to help students understand the core concepts in information systems, essential to just about every job. This means graduates who can lead teams and projects that integrate information systems into business processes are in high demand and have an edge in the job market. Students can choose to pursue MIS as concentration, offered through the Management major, or as a minor paired with any major. 

The program does not require any detailed knowledge of computing or information technology, nor is extensive computer programming required.  

Competitive Advantages  

As businesses continue to become more aware of the importance of using information systems to make operational and strategic decisions, they want to hire graduates who not only understand these systems, but also possess analytical problem-solving skills and know how to act as a liaison between business executives and IT staff. The MIS curriculum will give you this unique advantage upon graduation.
