The Rohrer College of Business has offered a Bachelor of Science in Management Information Systems since fall of 2007. Currently, the program is administered by the Marketing and Business Information Systems Department. Our MIS students are extraordinarily well-prepared for work in the information systems field. MIS students are expected to have three areas of distinct competency: business knowledge, technical skills and interpersonal skills. MIS majors have the opportunity to focus on a specific area within the MIS discipline by selecting from three tracks - Data Analytics, Information Security and Software Development. While pursuing a track is optional, it is highly recommended that students select one or more tracks. Click here for information about the MIS tracks.  

The MIS program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, and AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). There are few programs that have accreditation from both accrediting bodies.

For full information about the MIS degree, refer to the MIS program requirements.

Certificate Programs

In addition to the Bachelor of Science degree, the Rohrer College of Business offers a certificate program directly related to the MIS program. The Certificate of Undergraduate Studies: Business Analytics focuses on equipping students with the analytical capabilities and technical expertise necessary to turn data into actionable information to support a wide range of business functions. The certificate will enable students to understand the increasing importance of processing business data into helpful information in making decisions. Students outside the Rohrer College of Business may be interested in the Certificate of Undergraduate Studies: Management Information Systems, which introduces non-business majors to the basic business functions and allows them to explore the various facets of information systems.
