Master's in Management Information Systems

Since 1998, the OSU master’s degree in management information systems focused on providing solutions to business information systems, data and security needs. Consistently recognized for producing outstanding students, the program has increased in size and produced graduates who have been successful in a variety of roles across the business enterprise. To accommodate the changes in the IT marketplace, our curriculum is regularly reviewed and revised.


The STEM-designated program requires 34 credit hours for degree completion, including courses on MIS in business, database management, data warehousing, systems analysis, programming for data science, big data, health analytics, visualization, security, information assurance and professional development.
