Management Information Systems (MIS) is a hands-on major which equips students with real-world skills that are in demand in the job market. Our program prepares students to lead IT-enabled change in organizations.
The Terry MIS program provides the foundation for students to go in a technical direction (such as a programmer or database administrator), a non-technical direction (such as a business process analyst or project manager), or somewhere in the middle (such as a business intelligence or IT risk & security specialist).
