Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS)


The Master of Science in Information Systems program at Eastern Michigan University is aimed at preparing students in concepts, theory, and practices for designing, constructing, and maintaining information systems that support business processes. The knowledge and practical business applications development experiences that the students gain during their EMU M.S.I.S. studies prepare them for professional and academic advancement. Learning experiences in the M.S.I.S. program expose the students to challenges in developing leading edge information systems with a sound understanding of how information technology should integrate with strategic approaches to business management.
