Since the term “Information Age” came into existence, information technology has profoundly changed the way we conduct business and live our lives. Knowing how management information systems can improve the productivity and the quality of life is therefore imperative. Information systems (IS) are more than just computer hardware and software. IS managers are concerned with the planning, use, and control of organizational information. IS are used in systems design as well as managing day-to-day transactions; they are also used as a strategic weapon to improve an organizational competitive advantage. Software, such as database management systems (DBMS), decision support systems (DSS) and computer-aided software and systems engineering tools (CASE), are part of the tool package. To be in the MIS concentration, students are required to have their own computers. They are also encouraged to pursue professional certification in A+ (Computer Competency), Certified Data Processing (CDP) or numerous Microsoft Certificate Programs before graduation.
