Stand Out in Your Field

A COGS in Management Information Systems (MIS) enhances the skill set of current managers or those seeking employment in technologies, systems, or information security roles. Learn to use technology to increase effectiveness in project management, daily operations, computer information systems design, and implementation. Gaining experience and working toward mastery in MIS prepares you to leverage an organization for the maximum benefit in marketability, profitability, productivity, and efficiency.

Students will gain experience:

  • dealing with technological issues, such as systems security, encryption, and e-commerce payment mechanisms;
  • understanding the role humans play in developing technology-based solutions; and
  • learning to manage technology-related projects as well as how to aggregate and disseminate information systems data. 

The need for experts in information systems management is currently skyrocketing in every industry and sector, from retail to health care to air travel and airports to financial services and manufacturing.

  • business intelligence analyst;
