Through hands-on experience both in the classroom and in real-world settings, students gain an understanding of how businesses use technology to solve problems and create new business opportunities, as well as how to anticipate and utilize future technology.

MIS vs. Computer Science

Computer Science focuses on the internal workings of technology and on improving technology itself. MIS focuses on how people, business processes, and technology interact to meet an organization's goals. Computer Science answers the question, "How can we make technology work better?" MIS answers the question, "How can we help people work smarter using technology?"
