Overview

MIS majors combine strong technical skills with an understanding of organizations and business. Professionals who understand how to strategically and effectively use information systems in organizations are in high demand in every industry - for profit, non-profit, government, and academia.
Graduates in this field enjoy excellent placement at some of the highest starting salaries of any business major. Department of Labor projections indicate this trend will continue into the next century, as organizations increasingly rely on knowledge workers and strategic information systems.
Management Information Systems was ranked #8 among the most valuable college majors in terms of salary and career prospects by Forbes Magazine, and #2 by Kiplinger Magazine in their 2015-2016 list of Best College Majors for your Career.
What’s the difference between a Computer Science and MIS degree? Computer Science (CS) programs focus on the theoretical side of computers, data structures, networks and coding. CS programs are typically offered in science and engineering colleges at universities whereas Management Information Systems (MIS) programs are offered in business colleges. MIS focuses on the information and systems needed to manage organizations efficiently and effectively.
