Management Information Systems (MIS) Minor

The goal of the MIS minor program is to give business students a strong understanding of information systems in business without requiring them to learn how to program and actually develop the systems. Information systems are embedded within every area of an organization. Regardless of where a person works, he/she needs an understanding of how information is managed and utilized in today's rapidly changing technological world. The objective of the program is to provide a tool set and methodology for analyzing organizational processes.
