Management Information Systems
The Management Information Systems (MIS) department emphasizes the importance of information as an organizational resource to be managed for business decision making. The use of information to make decisions in accounting, management, management information systems, marketing, and finance is stressed.
MIS program graduates are prepared for advanced graduate study as well as employment in many areas including the management of information systems and technology, the development of business systems, business analytics and decision making, data base administration, and application software development. Graduates find careers in diverse industries such as health care, insurance, consulting, manufacturing, government, not-for-profit organizations, and small businesses.
The MIS Minor can be completed by all university students (including School of Business students not majoring in MIS). This MIS minor will complement a student's chosen field of study since information technology is a driving force in the marketplace and, thus, in most careers. The MIS Minor offers students the opportunity to excel in their careers by giving them information systems and technology knowledge and skills widely useful in decision making and problem solving.
