The Management Information Systems (MIS) Department offers an online Master’s degree in MIS. The MISonline Master’s degree is designed for working professionals with information technology experience.
MIS professionals are the “communication bridges” between IT and the business community. They analyze, design, implement, and manage IT applications and strategies to help solve business problems. MIS students first learn business processes and then analyze how to improve the processes using IT.
MIS professionals secure positions in website design and development, consulting, security risk assessment, internet marketing, Sarbanes-Oxley audit control, business analysis, customer relationship management consulting, eCommerce, legal forensics, medical records automation, enterprise resource planning, and supply chain management.
Eller College MIS students are prepared for the future because they learn more than technical skills — they learn how to apply technical skills in support of business processes.
The online Master’s program in MIS, offers students the flexibility to study anywhere in a 100% online environment, complete the courses faster through a 8 week accelerated format and choose the order of their classes.
