Management Information Systems Concentration
The management information systems concentration provides the student with a broad understanding of the role and use of managerial technology in the various functional areas of modern organizations. The overall intent is to prepare the student for entry-level positions in medium and large size organizations leading to high level technical or managerial careers in both the public and private sectors. The MIS course work prepares students for a variety of jobs.
The program is interdisciplinary in nature with specialized training in information systems, management, and information technology. It builds on the Bertolon School of Business common core, which includes course work in accounting, finance, marketing, management, operations and decision sciences. The program's educational objectives are realized through a variety of instructional methods, including "hands-on" computer experience; class lecture and discussions; textbook and article study; class assignments, laboratory projects and applied team projects in the business community; demonstrations; field trips; and presentations by MIS practitioners.
