​The Management Information Systems (MIS) concentration covers essential information systems concepts and methods to prepare you for positions such as business systems analyst or MIS Manager.  You will learn how to analyze and define information systems requirements in various business situations and much like architects, let others build them.  You will learn how to evaluate emerging disruptive technologies and how to align IT with business strategy. You will learn to address information systems needs from a business perspective which prepares graduates to become involved with IT planning and strategy.  Students not expected to have previous coursework or experience with information systems.

Two characteristics make the MIS concentration unique: flexibility and technological currency.  Flexibility is achieved by program requirements that vary from student to student and are determined personally for each degree candidate depending on experience, previous education and preferred career path.  Technological currency is achieved through the recognition that the world of information technology is constantly changing and you will find our MIS curriculum achieves a high-level of technological currency by combining practical coursework with current industry needs regarding the application of information systems.
