Management Information Systems (MIS)
The MIS major produces graduates who are both business analysts (i.e., professionals who understand accounting, marketing, finance, etc.) and information system specialists (i.e., professionals who can implement information systems strategies). Graduates of the program possess the business, technical, and leadership skills to meet the challenges presented by rapidly evolving information technology and the need to effectively incorporate this technology effectively into business strategy and day-to-day operations.
The MIS major requires 26 credit hours. This course work is divided into MIS foundation and MIS elective courses as outlined in the accompanying table. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in a co-op or internship position.
A 4+1 option is available for students wishing to pursue an undergraduate and master's degree in MIS in a total of five years. Students choosing this option must declare their intention during their junior year and begin taking graduate couses during their senior year.
