Major code BB6137

The management information systems (MIS) major is unique in its emphasis on applying computers to build information systems for business applications; the approach is applications oriented rather than technical. MIS majors are trained to assist with the rapidly progressing computerization of managerial functions and can expect to become business analysts and project managers involved in the systems development lifecycle.

The hands-on emphasis of the program exposes you to current Web development environments and systems development tools used to design solutions to common business problems. This training is designed to produce graduates who can quickly master computer technology so they will be able to adapt quickly to new technology and apply it to business problems. Being able to communicate with both management and computer specialists makes MIS graduates ideal candidates in organizations that make use of information systems and consulting companies.
