A concentration in Management of Information Systems at ETBU prepares students to design, develop, and maintain systems that collect and manage data. Using skills in web authoring and e-commerce, systems design and database development, computer networking, Visual Basic programming, and operating systems, students learn to analyze business needs for data collection.

Information is used by managers to make decisions and MIS professionals supply that information. They use computers and technology to gather, store, retrieve, and process information. They understand programming languages. They know how to represent business information in computerized formats.
When studying MIS, students learn a lot about computers. But that's not all. They also get a good grounding in all aspects of business administration. This helps you understand the kinds of information needed by the various departments of a firm. The four years required for a bachelor's degree will provide a solid background in various business subjects and improve job prospects and opportunities for promotion to Information Systems Manager.
