The management information systems minor is open to nonbusiness undergraduate students with any major and offers contemporary information-focused courses from a global business perspective. The goal of these courses is to show students how to use and manage data and information technology (IT) to help both individuals and organizations perform more efficiently and effectively. The minor includes both fundamental courses and those geared toward more specific information management challenges. These courses will include real-world examples, grounded in relevant theories and principles, and will be reinforced using appropriate information tools and systems to gain the necessary skills and knowledge for tomorrow’s work environment. The MMIS minor requires every student to build a strong understanding of how data is gathered, stored, managed, and used across the organization. Beyond this, students have the opportunity to explore new, cutting-edge areas such as information visualization, data mining, and blockchains. Other topics such as information privacy and security, mobile information systems, and artificial intelligence can also be examined in greater depth.
