All businesses and organizations depend on information systems to organize and maintain the data needed for decision-making. The Management Information Systems (MIS) major prepares students to design, develop, and manage information systems within organizations. MIS majors develop a foundation of business knowledge and skills that is complemented by more in-depth study of information technology. Many majors choose to double major within the School of Business or choose a minor that enhances their career opportunities.
MIS program is a STEM eligible degree program (CIP code 11.0199). The STEM designation allows eligible international students on F-1 visas access to an Optional Practical Training (OPT) extension, up to 36 months, as compared to 12 months for non-STEM degrees. This additional time period may help you gain additional real-world skills and experience in the U.S.
