B.S. Management Information Systems

The B.S. in Management Information Systems prepares students for careers in a rapidly changing technological world by training them to analyze business problems, challenges and opportunities, and to subsequently design, develop, implement and maintain business solutions through the use of information and information technology.

For all MIS course descriptions and additional information refer to the 2020 - 2021 Undergraduate Course Catalog.

Students specializing in MIS learn how to analyze complex business situations, solicit information from individuals and systems, write specification documents, effectively communicate with both technical and non-technical people, design and develop technological solutions, implement and integrate various technologies, propose and evaluate alternative solutions, develop and manage project plans, and assess system success and organizational impacts. Critical thinking and communication skills are emphasized as students become proficient in designing, developing and implementing information technology solutions. 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.
