The Associate in Science
Degree in Management Information Systems is designed for students
pursuing degrees in Business Administration, Computer Information
Systems, or Management Information Systems. Students should determine
what other lower division requirements are required by the institution
to which they intend to transfer.
Over the past two decades, there has been a sharp rise in the use of
computers and information technology in every sector of our economy. The
overall demand for computer professionals (systems analysts,
programmers, and computer networking technicians) continues to expand,
increasing every year with the future seemingly limitless. Many
professions demand an understanding of information technology beyond
computer literacy. This anticipated growth, according to the Bureau of
Labor Statistics, surpasses all other occupations.
Graduates of the computer science and MIS Programs often transfer to a
four-year college earning a bachelor's degree in business
administration, management information systems, computer science,
computer engineering, software engineering, business management,
accounting, statistics, mathematics, physics or electronics.
- Jobs given to computer studies graduates are
continuously among the top ten highest paid.
- Students can use their knowledge of computers in
every sector of their lives.
- As our society faces global climate change those
people in computers are ever important in planning solutions to the
balance of technology and the environment.
