Message From The Chair

Advances in digital technologies -- from social and mobile technologies to networking and the Internet of Things to Artificial Intelligence (AI) --  are transforming how businesses operate and revolutionizing innovation and entrepreneurship. All 21st-century organizations operate within global networks of customers, suppliers, competitors, and regulations. Information is the lifeblood of these networks, and effective management of information systems and technologies is essential to a firm's success. IT creates entrepreneurial and strategic opportunities as well as challenges in this environment. Managers must be able to evaluate new technologies, wisely invest in IT innovations, implement and manage applications, and use IT-enabled business processes to manage change.

Our mission is to prepare our graduates to excel in this technology-intensive world. We offer an undergraduate major in Management Information Systems, as well as concentrations in the MBA amd PhD programs in Business Administration and Communication & Information Sciences. Beginning in Fall, 2020, the Masters in Science in Information Systems (MSIS) opened with our first class. Our curriculum consists of: the core knowledge (MIS, systems analysis and design, data systems, and programming techniques), the competitive edge (project management, business intelligence and data analytics, the mobile economy with apps development, networking and security), and the bridge to the business and industry through internships and workshops. The US Department of Labor, US News and World Report, CIO, and many other sources all predict strong demand in ITM-related jobs in the next decade.

Our faculty is known internationally for contributions to research and practice. We invite you to learn about our educational programs, research and through our website. Please contact me for any questions you may have.
