Master of Science in Management Information Systems


The Master of Science in Management Information Systems (MSMIS) is a STEM program introducing students to a challenging field focused on integrating information technology and organizational processes to meet the needs of businesses and other enterprises. Our mission is to educate and prepare our students with both IT aptitude and business understanding that will qualify them for successful careers in the IT field.

Professionals who understand how to strategically and effectively use information systems in organizations are in high demand. Because our graduates make a significant contribution to the competitiveness and wellbeing of the organizations in which they work after graduation, they command very competitive salaries

In addition to the core Management Information Systems curriculum, the Department of Information Systems offers concentrations in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Business and Data Analytics.

Each program comprises four core courses and six electives. Students can choose to take two of those electives for study abroad, an internship or a thesis paper.

The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) concentration focuses on how to integrate all the business processes of different departments and functions across a company onto a single management of information systems—designed to optimize processes, drive efficient decision making and optimize the financial benefit to the company. 

Students in the Business and Data Analytics concentration learn the managerial, analytical, and technical skills needed to gather data, store, organize and analyze data—using programming tools and quantitative methods—then use the resulting information to improve business performance and gain a competitive advantage. 

These MIS degree options are SAP University Alliances programs. At AUM, you’ll have access to the SAP Business Suite family of solutions, including SAP ERP. This comprehensive business software suite enables students to gain insight into how SAP and other enterprise solutions can empower a business to optimize key processes such as accounting and controlling, human capital management, materials management, and sales and distribution.

  • What are the required prerequisite courses? The courses are Data Analytics for Competitive Advantage, Enterprise Information Systems, Information Security, and Innovation Strategy.
  • Why should I choose the core MIS program? The core MIS program allows you to choose your six electives from a broad range of topics, including Leading Innovation, Global Information Systems Leadership, Consulting in Information Systems, E-Commerce and Mobile Technologies, and more.
  • What kinds of jobs would I be eligible to pursue with the ERP concentration? You will be prepared to assist companies in the selection, implementation, and support of ERP systems. Possible job titles could include Chief Technology Officer, Chief Information Officer, Computer Systems Analyst, Computer Systems Consultant, and others.
  • What kinds of jobs could I pursue with the Business/Data Analytics concentration? You’ll be prepared to take on a career as a business analyst or data scientist in the functional and technical areas of an organization. These careers are in great demand; in 2022, the job growth for these professionals was 22%, much faster than the average occupation (BLS).
