The information technology degree with a specialization in MIS constitutes an interdisciplinary approach to modern information systems, providing strong foundations in business and computer science as they relate to business information management, development, and operations. It provides a melding of the two disciplines since the development of a computer-based information system is not merely a technological exercise; it also has managerial, organizational, and behavioral implications. The information technology degree with a specialization in MIS offers a strong foundation in computer science, business theory and practice, and the related role of information flow within an organization.
The information technology degree with a specialization in MIS provides majors a balance of theory and practice in both disciplines and prepares students for entry-level positions in such fields as systems analysis, systems design, and information systems management. Students are given instruction in business writing and presentation skills.
