Management Information Systems (MIS) blends business knowledge with the use of information technology to solve complex business challenges. The focus of MIS isn’t computer programming; instead, you will learn how to strategically apply technology to enhance the way people work and help companies innovate their products and services. From traders looking to capture market inefficiencies to marketers engaging with consumers to executives expanding businesses globally, technology impacts business in every way and with an MIS minor, you will gain insight on the ways IT systems are designed, developed and deployed.

- One MIS elective course can also include MIS 2020, MIS 2030, or MIS 2040. CSC 1052 may satisfy MIS 2020 if this course is not fulfilling the core Arts and Sciences requirement.
