Management Information Systems
Where Technology Meets Business
Management Information Systems (MIS) is a continually changing field, and the College of Business and Economics’ MIS program is always evolving to meet those changes. Information systems are used by every company and increasingly connect to all areas of business. MIS professionals:
- capture HR analytics on employee satisfaction and work-life balance
- plan and implement wireless networks
- upgrade trading hardware, banking systems and robo-advising software
- analyze and design smartphone apps
- process large amounts of accounting data and report it in meaningful ways
- analyze advertising, sales and consumer data to inform marketing decisions
Your MIS degree program begins with essential programming and systems analysis, quickly followed by building apps and databases. You'll also explore Big Data, learning to organize complicated, messy information and tell a story. The emerging field of Data Visualization, the graphic representation of data, will help you tell these stories, complete your degree and become the MIS professional industry leaders are seeking.
Answers to MIS problems aren’t always available because each one’s different. CBE taught me to think through MIS problems and find answers on my own and with a team. They taught me how to learn. Michael Vanderpool '21, B.S. MIS

"When faculty showed me information systems from an HR perspective, MIS classes became my favorite. I learned that everything in business has connections to MIS."
