The Management Information Systems department was formed in 2000 to support the three strategic pillars of the Fox School of Business, entrepreneurship, globalization, and information technology. David Schuff serves as Department Chair and Martin Doyle is Deputy Chair.
The vision of MIS is to be a worldwide leader in transformative research and teaching on the design, use, and effects of information technology in a digital world.
The research mission is to produce knowledge that fundamentally transforms the design and use of information technology by integrating multi-disciplinary perspectives. The teaching mission is to prepare a diverse and changing population for a life-long pursuit of learning, leadership, and success with information technology in a connected world. Our objectives include:
- Generate ground breaking research by drawing on diverse theories, methods, and approaches.
- Draw upon research to inform forward thinking professionals to design, implement, and lead innovative uses of information technology in organizations and markets.
- Offer theoretically informed, experiential, and collaborative education on the innovative and ethical design, development, and application of information technology.
The MIS department offers undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs in information systems and includes more than 850 majors and minors and 17 faculty members and staff.
