Management Information Systems supports three strategic pillars of the Fox School of Business, entrepreneurship, globalization, and information technology. David Schuff serves as Department Chair and Martin Doyle is Deputy Chair.
The vision of MIS is to be a worldwide leader in transformative research and teaching on the design, use, and effects of information technology in a digital world.
Our teaching mission is to prepare a diverse and changing population for a life-long pursuit of learning, leadership, and success with information technology. Our research mission is to produce knowledge that fundamentally transforms the design and use of information technology by integrating multi-disciplinary perspectives. Our objectives include:
- Generate ground breaking research by drawing on diverse theories, methods, and approaches.
- Draw upon research to inform forward thinking professionals to design, implement, and lead innovative uses of information technology in organizations and markets.
- Offer theoretically informed, experiential, and collaborative education on the innovative and ethical design, development, and application of information technology.
- The MIS department offers undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs in information systems.
The nationally recognized Bachelors of Business Administration in Management Information Systems (MIS) produces digital leaders who design, architect, and manage API-driven products. These products apply APIs, cloud, cyber-security, agile, user experience, and analytics to achieve business outcomes.
A minor in MIS provides undergraduate students the ability to identify, select, use, and apply information technology (IT) to their major field of study. The minor provides the skills and terminology needed to become a knowledgable user of IT in the business world and interact successfully with technology professionals in an organization.
The nationally recognized MS in Information Technology Auditing and Cyber-Security (MS ITACS) prepares students for careers in protecting and evaluating organizational information systems. The MS ITACS will produce entry-level IT auditors who have the skills and knowledge needed to pass the Information Systems Audit and Control Association’s (ISACA) Certified Information System Auditor exam. The program also offers a Cyber-security track that prepares students for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) exam.
The PhD Business Administration in MIS produces high-caliber faculty who are ready to assume responsibilities at top-tier research universities and generate high-impact research. A hallmark of our program is the close collaboration between faculty and Ph.D. students. The program includes highly acclaimed faculty with an excellent research record and extensive experience in mentoring doctoral students.
