Improve organizations through the use of information systems and technology

With the ever-changing nature of Information Systems fields, our program emphasizes the development of skills that will serve students and the organizations they join well into the future.

The Management Information Systems (MIS) emphasis in the Bachelor of Business Administration degree program allows students to learn the technical skills and to gain the business knowledge to succeed in their careers. The entire degree can be earned online, allowing students to continue working, to raise families, and to live in their own communities while pursuing a degree.

MIS Program Sheet

Degree Requirements (2015-2016 Catalog)

Candidates must complete the general education requirements (GERs) as well as the specific program requirements listed in this section for a minimum of 120 credit hours. Any given course may be counted as fulfilling more than one requirement in a degree program, but the credit hours can only be counted once. Degrees must include 42 credits of upper-division (300 or above) courses, 24 of which must be completed at UAS. Courses used as major requirements cannot be used as GERs.

A minimum grade of C (2.0) must be earned in math (through MATH S107) and communication classes taken in the general education requirements. In addition, all students in the Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) program must either test out of or earn a C- or better in 3 hours of CIS spreadsheet or database courses, major and emphasis courses, and BA 462, Capstone. Students should complete the computer courses within their first sixty (60) credit hours.

Students in any of the business programs who are deemed deficient in any of the competency areas may be required to take additional courses to strengthen their skills before graduation. Any such additional courses can usually be counted as a program elective. Requiring supplementary course work will be considered if two different faculty members indicate a student has a weakness in the same outcome area.
