Management Information Systems Concentration

If you enjoy using technology to solve problems, the management information systems (MIS) concentration may be the right choice for you.

The MIS concentration is made up of six upper-level courses exploring both technical and managerial topics that equip you for an entry-level position in management information systems or a related field. Along with your core business classes, you will learn how to use technology to create business value in an organization and will develop technical aptitude and familiarity on a variety of technologies and programming languages. Specific coursework includes technical topics like "Database Management Systems and Telecommunications Technology" and more traditional MIS-oriented coursework like "Systems Analysis and Design and Management of IT Projects."

Curriculum Plan

Academic performance in freshman and sophomore courses is the main criterion for admission to the upper division in the School of Management. In the first two years, you will complete the university writing requirements, general education courses and seven prerequisite courses for the major.

If you're not ready for calculus, you should take precalculus before attempting MTH 131.

The first semester you enrolled at UB (not in the management major) determines which curriculum plan to select below. This is also referred to as your catalog year.
