Management Information Systems (MIS) is a scientific field that links between modern business management and applications of information technology. The aim of this new discipline is to help organizations achieve their goals with a greater advantage. MIS major represents a point of intersection between management sciences, and information technology with the objective of developing and establishing information systems that are able to improve the performance of institutions, simplifying complex processes and making valuable information readily available.
The Management Information Systems department provides an integrated study plan of (132) credit hours that include knowledge about both information technology and business management to equip students with a solid foundation in order to prepare them as future professionals who will be responsible for developing and managing business information systems.
