The Department of Management Information Systems combines business and electronics. The Department of MIS has created a hands-on learning environment to allow students access to the latest hardware and software tools. The program is designed to prepare individuals for positions as managers in business information systems, including database administrators, web designers, electronic commerce developers, systems analysts, applications programmers, IT security managers, and systems trainers. Courses enable students to solve business problems using a variety of computer programs.
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.
Students receive a BS by completing all required courses in the major. To receive a BA, students must also gain proficiency in one or more foreign languages.
The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business may charge differential tuition for this program. Differential tuition is an added cost per credit for courses in the program. See the last page in the USU Tuition & Fee schedule for more information.
