Management Information Systems (MIS) is a challenging field of study focused on integrating computer-based information technology solutions and business processes to achieve business goals. Students learn to apply computer-based information technologies and the information produced to create organizational value.

MIS graduates will be able to effectively apply 1) managerial concepts; 2) systems analysis, design and project management concepts; and 3) technical concepts. The program is focused on continuous improvement and is aligned with national curricular guidelines for information systems. MIS seniors take the information systems analyst certification exam to validate learning. Students have the option to earn additional certifications from SAP and other corporations. The program’s combination of relevant business and technical skills prepares our graduates to be leaders of the next generation of MIS professionals.

Features of our innovative program include interactive lectures, individual assignments and in-depth team projects. Alliances with SAP, Microsoft and other firms provide students with access to the most current technologies. Partnerships with information systems professional associations facilitate student interaction with the business community. Internships with well-known corporations are available to qualified students.
