Master of Management Information Systems (MMIS)
The Master of Management Information Systems (MMIS) is a professional degree that integrates the information systems and business cultures. During their program of studies, students focus on the strategic role that information systems play in a business organization. With emphasis on current research activities in the field of information systems, the MMIS program offers current topical studies to better prepare students for employment in the field. The MMIS program supports both traditional and emerging career opportunities in information systems.
Management of information is core to virtually all sizes and types of organizations and industries, thus an MMIS degree expands job opportunities for program graduates.
Skills: The MMIS program will give you a unique combination of technical and IT management skills. Not only will you learn high-demand information technologies such as .Net, Java, UML and XML, you will also gain hands-on application experience in computer technology labs.
Quality and Convenience: The program course work can be completed in approximately 24 months which puts you on the path to completing a graduate education that will put you at the top of your game. Plus, the convenience of online learning allows you to complete your course work from any place and at any time of the day, thus giving you the ability to continue working while earning your degree.
Growth Potential: Computer and information systems managers may advance to progressively higher leadership positions in an information technology department. On occasion, some may become managers in non-technical areas such as marketing, human resources, or sales because in high technology firms an understanding of technical issues is helpful in those areas. Earning your MMIS can advance your career and increase your opportunity for promotion.
Job Opportunities: The MMIS program will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to become a computer and information systems (CIS) manager. CIS managers play a vital role in the implementation and administration of technology within organizations. They plan, coordinate, and direct research on the computer-related activities of firms. In consultation with other managers, they help determine the goals of an organization and then implement technology to meet those goals. They oversee all technical aspects of an organization, such as software development, network security, and Internet operations.

The MMIS is a 36 credit-hour, 24-month degree program lead by instructors who have years of industry experience in the field. You will receive the most up-to-date, practical education possible.
