Blend computing and business skills.
Management information systems (MIS) is a discipline that combines technical knowledge, including software design, computer programming, and database design, with business expertise. MIS professionals act as a link between IT specialists and business leaders to ensure organizations use information systems technology in ways that add value to an organization and its clients.
Develop and commercialize the technologies of tomorrow. Manage IT projects and teams. Evaluate the business value of IT solutions. Identify the IT needs of real industry clients. Learn a core set of technology and business knowledge and skills, then explore specialized areas of business, IT, and information systems (info systems), such as the design of technical user experiences, financial technology (FinTech), accounting analytics, and digital marketing. Plus, learn from professors with industry experience in small classes—you'll get to know them on a first-name basis.
With a degree in MIS from Michigan Tech, you'll get the skills needed to pursue career opportunities in either technology or business (or both!). On average, Huskies receive three to four job offers before graduation, and earn an average starting salary of $65,000+. The competitive edge you'll gain from earning an AACSB accredited degree from a STEM school will help to set you apart. Looking to take your education to the next level? You can also earn a master's in one additional year through our Accelerated Master's program.
