MIS 515         Management Information Systems (3)

Strategic uses of information that affect customers, markets, and products are becoming common today.  Information is used to manage organizations, carry out strategy, control operations, and assist in decision-making.  As a result, information is a resource with value equal to that of traditional assets such as inventory, capital, and human skills.  In this course students will learn to manage and use information systems and technology.  The MIS course provides concepts, methods, and techniques to identify an organization’s information needs and to employ systems to meet these needs.  The course introduces business students to topics such as information systems, database management, information technology, expert systems, and decision support systems.
