Master of Management Information Systems (MMIS)
The MMIS program at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business is an innovative, project-focused program designed to address business problems through data and information.
Opportunities in the information systems and technology sectors continue to be among the hottest and most rewarding across the job market. The MMIS program is an exciting and hands-on pathway to these careers that comprise a majority of Glassdoor’s annual top 25 “Best Jobs in America,” including enterprise architect, devops engineer, data engineer, Java developer, cloud engineer, information security engineer, data scientist, software developer, and others.
The MMIS program allows students to customize their course of study by selecting two post-baccalaureate certificates from tracks that include Data Technologies, Data Engineering, Data Analytics, Web Development, and Cybersecurity. Careers in information systems and data technologies are multidisciplinary and require teamwork, critical thinking, and communication. Well-qualified applicants are encouraged to apply from any background (including non-technical areas of study or employment) in which they have developed and applied these skills. Upon acceptance into the MMIS program, students will meet with the MMIS program coordinator to select certificate tracks that best complement their individual prior experience.
The MMIS program carries a STEM designation in database management and analytics. The 30-credit program has nearly a 100% placement rate with a median salary of $65,000. The program also offers multiple opportunities for professional networking with top tier companies.
Face-to-Face and Statewide MMIS Program Options
The Utah State MMIS program can be completed face-to-face at the Logan campus and is also offered for working professionals through USU’s Statewide campus system at locations throughout the state of Utah. Admission information and deadlines for the MMIS program can be found on the MMIS website.
Learning how to manage and analyze data will greatly improve my experience getting my PhD, as I am better equipped to do research and analyze the results of studies with the skills I learned. For mentoring, the professors have been so helpful and encouraging. They have sat down with me and given me great counsel that has set me up to be admitted into a prestigious PhD program.

Due to hard and soft skills learned in the MMIS program and experience with the Business Intelligence Group at USU I was able to land a fantastic internship with Koch Industries working as a Data Science / Business Intelligence Intern. All thanks goes to this program: the advisers and the faculty.

The MMIS program thus far has been an incredible experience, specifically in regards to technical skills growth. The MMIS professors are top-notch in their field of study and most bring real-world experience that help me understand the concepts in relation to the professional workforce. The best thing about this program is that it applies to all businesses/industries and is growing rapidly in the professional setting.
