Head: R. Metters

Graduate Advisor: Aaron Becker

The Department of Information and Operations Management offers a Master of Science in Management Information Systems (MS-MIS) and a PhD in Supply Chain Management. In addition, the department offers coursework supporting Mays Business School’s MBA degrees and the Professional Program.

Students admitted to the Professional Program offered by the Department of Accounting may elect to participate in the five-year combined MS-MIS program. Graduates of this program receive a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting and a Master of Science degree in Management Information Systems.

Masters Program

The MS-MIS degree program prepares students to enter this exciting and dynamic career field. It provides students with a solid technical information systems foundation and appropriate business skills that enables graduates to immediately contribute to solving business problems. Graduates are highly valued and respected in the workforce and are sought by first class employers.

The program is equally beneficial for students with an information systems background as well as those wishing to leverage and enhance their undergraduate degree from another field. The MS-MIS degree is an ideal complement for any undergraduate student with a degree in business, engineering, science, math or other analytically-oriented majors. The MS-MIS degree can jump start your career and provide opportunities not available to those with only an undergraduate degree.

The MS-MIS degree program provides two delivery methods. The traditional format is an on-campus option that takes four semesters (21 months) and includes a core curriculum of eight courses, in addition to four elective courses, which may include an optional summer internship.  The online format is designed for working professionals and requires twelve courses, taken in eight-week terms over 24 months. Graduates of the program are qualified to pursue a variety of careers in IT, such as business, systems, or network analyst, database administrator, software developer, risk assurance specialist, systems developer, web developer, etc.

Prerequisites for the MS-MIS degree include a course in each of the following:

  • Computer Programming (any language)
  • Databases
  • Systems Analysis and Design
  • Business Data Communications

Doctoral Program

The doctoral program in operations and supply chain management is strongly research oriented and has a systems point of view. It stresses the relationships among the functional business areas and the importance of effective decision making with the goal of developing professionals who are well grounded in underlying theory in their disciplines and who have refined problem-solving capabilities.

The program has three primary objectives:

  1. Provide comprehensive knowledge of business concepts and practices in functional business areas to support teaching and research interests;
  2. Develop advanced competencies for conducting quality research, directing research of others, and communicating research findings through teaching and writing; and
  3. Prepare candidates for the varied responsibilities of academic careers or for positions requiring similar research and analytical skills.
