Management Information Systems

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.

Students who succeed as MIS Majors are:

  • Able to work independently
  • Able to teach others
  • Self-directed and proactive
  • Effective team members

The MIS Major curriculum emphasizes:

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Analyzing and resolving problems
  • Technical skills
  • Creativity, with good design and layout skills
  • Knowledge of Internet and network technologies
  • Good people skills

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.

The Management Information Systems career placement rate for the class of 2018 is 100%.
