Department of Computing and Decision Sciences
The concentration in management information systems is designed to achieve the following objectives: to provide a thorough understanding of the principles of computerized information systems, including computer programming concepts, techniques and languages; to help students appreciate the capabilities and limitations of computerization; to develop skills necessary for the evaluation, development and implementation of information systems; and to increase the students' appreciation of the economic, social, legal and technological considerations present in information processing activity. Students concentrating in management information systems have the flexibility to choose elective courses that explore either the managerial or technical aspects of information systems.
Many of our full-time faculty have attended top Ph.D. programs and are in demand as lecturers, consultants and media experts. Stillman School faculty provide an academic experience characterized by high faculty-student engagement, often partnering with students on research projects.
