MMIS & MBA

This unique sequential degree program is designed for students seeking to combine best practice approaches to quality management (MBA) by employing technologies to understand performance and retention drivers and improve operational performance (MMIS).

The MBA program provides students with a broad foundation in general management, including advanced training in diverse fields such as accounting, enterprise growth and development, finance, information systems, marketing, management, and operations.

Equally important is the technological side. Technology is working its way into multiple aspects of today’s business jobs, and employees with solid analytical and technology foundations are critical in the dynamically changing market. According to an article in Forbes in 2014, the competitive landscape requires the ability of managers to turn data into actionable intelligence in real time, using Big Data-related analytical tools.

Completing the MBA/MMIS program will allow graduates to enter the job market with both sets of expertise. The MBA profession is increasingly calling for graduates who couple Big Data understanding with in-depth business expertise.
