The Academic Program
The focus of the Department of Information Technology Management includes management of information technologies within organizations, application, development and use of information systems for management and business.
BBA in Management Information Systems
The Management Information Systems (MIS) major learns how to analyze opportunities for business change and growth using information technologies (IT), to design and develop business solutions that utilize IT, and to manage projects to implement IT-related change. Designing and managing information flows within and between firms and their customers is critical in today’s business enterprise. All firms in every type of industry–large or small, for-profit or not-for-profit–rely on information systems and technologies for ongoing operations and future strategies. The internet and other information technologies also create entrepreneurial opportunities for new or existing firms. Many of today’s leading firms grew rapidly from IT innovation.
The MIS major offers students the flexibility to focus course work on business analysis, system analysis and design, and business analytics. MIS majors are prepared for careers in project management, business analysis, networking, system architecture and design, technical support, business analytics, and e-commerce. MIS majors are prepared to work as in-house information systems staff, as consultants for information systems and accounting firms, as independent contractors, and as business entrepreneurs. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts increasing job grow for MIS-related careers.
