What is an Information System?

An "information system" is a bridge between computing and business; it supports business operations and management. In business today, the use of technology not only improves decision-making, but it also enables businesses to streamline their operations and compete more effectively in the marketplace. As a result, the management of information systems is an integral part in virtually every business unit-from healthcare and high-technology to restaurants and retail.

MSIS Program Benefits

Focus on the technology or management side of information systems by choosing one of two distinct tracks.
Become an effective team member, including teams that are international and geographically distributed.
Excel at project development and management and improve business decision-making.
Learn how to reconcile conflicting project objectives.
Be eligible to apply for positions such as business systems analyst, software project manager, software requirements developer, information technology operations manager, and customer support specialist.

The MSIS also allows students to gain full and thorough training in information systems, which can be used as a basis for pursuing certifications such as the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional), PMP (Project Management Professional) and CSDP (Certified Software Development Professional).
