Management Of Information Systems

The Management of Information Systems (MIS) major provides the knowledge and skills to understand both the technical and organizational factors to aid a company, non-profit or governmental organization in defining and achieving its goals using information systems. It is also concerned with the processes that an enterprise can implement and improve using information systems, and helps an organization determine how information, people and technology-enabled business processes can provide a foundation for superior organizational performance. Students develop their technical and organizational skills needed to analyze, design, implement, and administer information systems. Modes of instruction include case studies, projects and business simulations to build effective technical, analytical, oral communication and writing skills, as well as the ability to work independently or in teams. A graduate of MIS serves as a bridge between the technical and management communities within an organization, in roles such as business analysts, business application developers, business intelligence, database analysts, project managers, IT auditors, IT consultants, systems analysts, and management consultants.
