Concordia University Chicago's accelerated online bachelor of science in management information systems (MIS) prepares students for careers in fields such as information management, systems analysis, information brokerage, competitive intelligence, and database development.
Graduates with a Bachelor of Science in Management Information Systems (MIS) excel in applying information technologies to solve business problems and achieve business goals. An MIS degree provides students with comprehensive knowledge involving computers, business information systems and managerial concepts. MIS majors must understand the needs of both the business people using their systems and the computer science professionals creating their systems. A large portion of a MIS graduate’s work focuses on data analysis, teamwork, leadership, project management, customer service and underlying business theories. Professionals in this field improve the productivity and quality of work within an organization.
With technology on the rise, this degree features a combination of computer science and information systems degrees with a business focus. The market for MIS professionals is expected to increase by 30% from 2008 to 2018 (www.bls.gov). Students who complete a Bachelor's degree in MIS can find a number of well-paying jobs with long-term potential.
Students entering the Bachelor of Science program can earn up to a maximum of 32 semester hours of credit from sources as workshops, seminars, corporate training programs, military service, or other experiences. Documentation that the student presents must demonstrate mastery of college-level learning acquired from these sources. It is evaluated and may result in credit hours being awarded.
