The MIS concentration prepares students to excel professionally and contribute meaningfully to the knowledge/information economy of the 21st century. It is the one business concentration that combines business and technology–exactly what Silicon Valley is all about. That's why our graduates regularly score the highest starting salaries of all of the business concentrations and get jobs at great places like Google, Cisco, HP, Apple and eBay.
Information is the lifeblood of all organizations, now more than ever and they need someone who understands both business (programmers/computer scientists don't) and technology (other kinds of managers don't). As the managers of information and technology within the organization, MIS professionals bring technology and business together to deliver information solutions that help organizations meet their goals.
The MIS Department is distinguished by an award-winning team of instructors, spanning academic research and industry experience. Our curriculum reflects the best practice recommendations of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) to which we have added many program innovations. And, more importantly, we are very proud of our many successful Alumni.
That’s MIS. A great career. Totally dynamic. Totally flexible. Totally cool.
