Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

Program Description:

Two majors are available: management information systems and supply chain management.

The management information systems major trains students for careers in systems analysis, business systems design, and information technology management. The program strongly emphasizes business and organizational studies as well as information systems technology. Students in this program will study business systems analysis, business systems design, and computer programming. Other technical and business areas in the program focus on developing, implementing, and maintaining information systems in a variety of organizational settings. The program includes course work in information system design and development methodologies, database management systems, electronic business, and data communications. The program also covers business fundamentals in accounting, finance, marketing, management, and operations management.

Business Analytics Concentration:

This concentration will provide content knowledge in the field of business analytics to students enrolled in the MIS Major.  This is a new discipline in business which encourages organizations to examine their existing stores of data to discern possible trends or patterns which have been hidden heretofore.  Moreover, today’s business analytics extends the work historically relegated to the area of data warehousing and data mining by including current–even up to the moment–data in the analysis.
