Management Information Systems

An undergraduate degree in Management Information Systems (MIS) focuses on solving business problems and creating new opportunities with information technology. MIS is often shortened to Information Systems (IS) or Information Technology (IT). You will learn how to initiate, design, and apply technology to transform business processes and functions - as well as how to create innovative digital products and services. MIS degrees are usually classified as STEM, which opens the door to STEM-specific scholarships.
