The application deadline for Fall 2020/Spring 2021 is Monday, April 27th, 2020. Next application window after this will be in Spring 2021 for the following academic year 2021-2022. NOTE: MIS Honors starts only in the fall! It's a 2-semester program.
The Management Information Systems Honors Practicum is a special 2-semester class for exceptional MIS majors in their senior year. The class concept is to provide a "real world" experience for the students so they can apply the technical skills they've learned in their studies to a project that an organization will actually implement and use. These are team projects for groups of 3-5 students. The students are responsible for the entire project including defining requirements, designing the product, implementing it (or getting it ready to turn over to the sponsor for implementation), developing user manuals, providing training, etc. as appropriate to the specific project. In addition to active coaching of the teams we work on project management methods/skills in the classroom which is directly applied to the projects.
