The purpose of the Master of Science Program in Management Information Systems (MS-MIS) is to integrate information technology with business management. The program is designed to provide students with a strong educational foundation thereby preparing them as Information Systems (IS) professionals. MS-MIS consists of a specially designed curriculum which emphasizes conceptual, analytical, technical, and interpersonal skills.
The MS-MIS program blends theory and practice into a learning experience that develops skills applicable to complex real-world problems. It is designed to give students a thorough knowledge of the field and to provide an enduring foundation for future professional growth. To be successful in the increasingly competitive global marketplace, most corporations are looking for employees that have comprehensive knowledge and training on aligning business management and the information systems function in ways consistent with organizational ethical principles. MS-MIS delivers exactly that. The MIS Department is housed in the College of Business and Public Administration, and has a mission that mirrors the aspirations of the business community.
The MS-MIS curriculum is designed to accommodate both individuals holding undergraduate management related degrees and other professionals who may have non-management related baccalaureate degrees.
The Graduate Program in Management Information Systems provides education and degrees that equip a predominantly inner-city student body from the Metro New Orleans region with cutting-edge knowledge, professional and research skills, and ethical decision-making abilities essential for successful careers in business, industry, education, government, and for further studies at graduate and professional levels. The program supports and promotes research and intellectual contributions aimed at improving teaching, business opportunities in the region, and awareness of global issues.
