The Information Systems and Quantitative Sciences area has a major field called Management Information Systems (MIS). The MIS graduate is prepared to perform as a computer programmer, information systems analyst and designer, telecommunications and networking expert, information technology project manager, or business analyst depending upon the concentration(s) chosen for study.
Graduates from all concentrations are in great demand by industries across the board.
MIS majors may choose one or more of the three concentrations: web application design,
telecommunications/ networking, or business analysis.
The purpose of the certificate program in MIS is for BA students in non-MIS majors to expand their knowledge of information technology (IT) as applied in business and to increase understanding of everyday IT. The MIS certificate program will provide valuable IT knowledge and skills for success in today's fast-paced and dynamic marketplace. The initial prerequisites are a grade of C or better in ISQS 2340, a 2.75 GPA, and admission to the upper- division major. The certificate will consist of four courses chosen from the following list. Any four may be chosen, but prerequisites must be met prior to enrolling in the course.
