Management Information Systems

The ability to successfully design and implement business information systems has become a cornerstone in all industries.


Modern businesses simply cannot compete without the power of information systems. As a result, MIS skills are no longer optional for business professionals. The dynamic nature of our current business environment dictates that all areas of business leverage the power of information systems to perform effectively.

The bottom line? MIS professionals play a strategic role in all businesses through analyzing and integrating people, process, and information technology. This creates unprecedented opportunities for management information systems professionals. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the need for business analysts to grow much faster than the job market in the foreseeable future.

As an MIS student in OHIO's College of Business, you’ll learn the technical and analytical skills necessary for success. You’ll put what you learn in the classroom into practice, gaining the hands-on experience that will solidify those skills for life-long success.

Looking back, I wish I had focused more on MIS and analytics during my undergraduate experience. The concepts you learn are at the core of so many different parts of business, and I know focusing more on this field at an earlier point in my development would have only helped.
