Curriculum

The MMIS curriculum was developed with two strategic goals:

  1. Provide students with analytical-focused information systems knowledge and a complementary business acumen to enhance corporate leadership and problem solving.
  2. Support the Huntsman four pillars of excellence – Ethical Leadership, Global Vision, Analytical Rigor and Entrepreneurial Spirit.

MMIS focuses on technology's role in managing and making sense of the ever‐increasing amount of data flowing into organizations. Today's managers must effectively utilize this data to improve decision making and company performance. As a student in the 33‐credit hour MMIS program, you will learn how to create value with powerful combinations of people, processes, and technology. Classes are project based with a hands‐on learning approach.
