Key Features

The Management - Management Information Systems program from University of Arizona is designed to prepare students for teaching and research careers involving the design, analysis, implementation and operation of computer-based information systems and other associated organizational and economic issues. MIS involves the use of computers in organizations and the integration of computing technologies within  functional areas of a broad range of profit and non-profit organizations.
