Associate in Science Degree

The Management Information Systems program combines Business and Information Systems curricula which includes general education, business, and computer courses that are normally taken at a baccalaureate institution. Business and computer science majors may see this degree as a conduit that transitions them into the highly desirable field of technology management. The program will reinforce the communication, business, and technology skills necessary to succeed in the business environment. Courses in this program will transfer to other four-year colleges in the Management Information Systems and/or computer degree programs. Students intending to transfer should meet with the Coordinator of the Management Information Systems program for advising.
