About the Bachelor of Science in Business (Management Information Systems)

The Management Information Systems (MIS) degree program prepares students to fill the role of an MIS professional and/or manager in organizations in the north central Indiana and southwestern Michigan region. It gives students the computer knowledge and technical skills needed by managers who will be responsible for applying computers and other information technology (IT) in businesses and not-for-profit organizations. This is a growing area, given the increasing need for employees who understand the complexities of information technology and can contribute to effective management of IT systems.


Academic Advising

The mission of the academic advising program in the Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics is to promote academic success, student satisfaction, and increased retention by providing students with advisors to help students make educational, career, and personal decisions.

The policy on advising requires that students meet with their academic advisors at least once each year, and freshmen and sophomores are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to each semester’s enrollment. Advising holds are placed on all freshmen and sophomores prior to advance registration and are released following advising appointments. To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see One.IU.
