A management information system (MIS), also known as a computer information system, is a set of subsystems and procedures used to gather information to facilitate management decisions. Management information systems, also known as computer information systems, rely largely on technology to compile data and present reports. Students pursuing this degree require an aptitude for logical thinking, analysis, and problem-solving.
Undergraduate-level MIS courses teach or retrain students in problem-solving and analytical skills using logical thinking. In a typical MIS course, students can learn how to design information systems while developing project management skills to ensure successful implementation of those systems.
