Minor in Management Information Systems

Degree Type



When you work at the intersection of business and technology, you do more than identify problems—you help solve them.


Management information systems (MIS) is a professional field that studies how people, businesses, and technology interact—and the data that these interactions create. Our world today runs on data, and we need people who know how to analyze, store, relate, and apply that data to all types of organizational goals and needs.  

You could help a restaurant chain use a database to store their entire library of recipes and ingredients. You might build a system to help a hospital find potential matches for organ donors and recipients. A nonprofit organization might need an information system to figure out who needs their services. As a management information systems major, you’ll learn the skills to design, implement, and apply data management systems that could quite possibly change the world. 

You can choose to minor or major in Management Information Systems.
