Management Information Systems

The MIS Concentration equips students with knowledge, techniques and skills essential for their success in various IT-related positions, by which, we mean not only technical professions such as programmers or software developers, but also those involved creative and problem solving skills, such as business analysis, system analysis, system design, project implementation and IS experts in other functional areas.  The curriculum is designed based on fundamental building blocks of information systems. Elective courses are offered to supplement the essential subjects and broaden students’ knowledge base. Current and cutting-edge technologies are timely introduced as special topics. To dutifully fulfill their responsibilities, MIS students are expected to not only master technical skills, but also grow an understanding of how businesses operate, and own proficient people and communication skills as well as problem-solving capability.  Just like all business students, MIS students are required to take business core courses in various disciplines and the University Core. The requirements of business foundation and University Core are expected to develop Gonzaga MIS students to be well-rounded professionals.
