The MIS program focuses on the innovation of business-oriented information technology to open new markets and improve business operations by leveraging information systems. Students learn to combine knowledge of core business and technology to excel in future careers such as business analysts, consultants or app designers. Graduates choose from opportunities in consulting, corporate, government, not-for-profit, and start-up organizations.
The program culminates with a single-semester, corporate-sponsored practicum project beginning with situational analysis, then proceeding through cause and effect analysis – determining features needed to solve the problem – and then designing, building, testing and delivering the business solution. This emphasis on experiential learning through application of classroom concepts results in graduates who are highly sought after by firms across the nation.
