MIS focuses on the role that computers play in managing and making sense of the ever-increasing amount of data flowing into organizations. Managers are tasked with figuring out how to deal with data-overload inundating their organization through increasing automation. As a student in our program, you will learn how to create value through innovation utilizing people, processes, and technology.
The management information systems program gives students well-developed skills in information processing, business writing, and microcomputers. Because of the variety of business courses required to obtain a degree in management information systems, graduates might find opportunities beyond the traditional MIS sphere, including sales, advertising, retailing, finance, personnel, traffic, and transportation.
The MIS program is housed in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, the oldest business school west of the Mississippi. USU has offered business degrees since 1894 and has long held prestigious accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International and continues to be on the forefront of advanced business education.
