Management Information Systems (MIS) is a major that primarily combines computer science with business intelligence. A good example would be the computer networks in your high school or college. All of those systems are linked, integrated and respond to the needs and desires of the purpose they serve. The first four components (hardware, software, database, and network) make up what is known as the information technology platform. Information systems graduates are in high demand, and the need is ever growing. You'll learn how to make web based applications, smart phone apps, and how the web, phone, credit card processors, printers, etc are all linked. MIS is challenging, but the outcomes are rewarding with high starting salaries for graduates.
