The masters-level management concentration in Management Information Systems (MIS) is geared towards servicing the needs of students and their prospective employers in two ways. First, the curriculum provides students with marketable job skills by teaching them material that is of immediate usefulness in entry-level positions. For example, students can gain depth in the areas of software development using database technology (Access and Oracle) and Visual Basic. Second, emerging trends and issues in IS theory and applications are emphasized in order to better serve those students who rise to managerial responsibility. Thus, students are prepared to use their practical knowledge in a decision-making capacity.
Students must complete the standard MBA curriculum and three masters-level MIS electives in order to fulfill the requirements of the MIS concentration.
