B.S. in Management Information Systems

Bachelor of Science in Management Information Systems

The mission of the MIS program is to prepare students for careers in a rapidly changing technological world by training them to analyze business problems, challenges, and opportunities and to subsequently design, develop, implement and maintain business solutions through the use of information and information technology.

The Rohrer College of Business has offered a Bachelor of Science in Management Information Systems since fall of 2007. Currently, the program is administered by the Marketing and Business Information Systems Department. Our MIS students are extraordinarily well-prepared for work in the information systems field. MIS students are expected to have three areas of distinct competency: business knowledge, technical skills and interpersonal skills. The MIS program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, and AACSB International Accreditation. There are few programs that have accreditation from both accrediting bodies.

For full information about the MIS degree, refer to the MIS program requirements.
