ITWS Concentration: Management Information Systems

For those entering the program Fall 2011 semester & beyond

Contact Person: Frank Wright

The Management Information Systems concentration prepares you for careers in information systems analysis and programming, design, management, and consulting.

Beyond the Information Technology & Web Science curriculum and the management core, the student will cover such topics as systems analysis, telecommunications, database design, and computer programming.

The capstone course will closely integrate the ITWS and MIS course experiences in an extended application, possibly with a large local company.

Move the HASS elective to a semester with a free elective. If the CSCI Sequence is chosen, your math elective in Semester II must be MATH-2800 Intro to Discrete Structures. If a student is planning to apply to the co-terminal MS in IT program, they need to select the CSCI sequence.
