Computer Science - Management Information Systems (AS)

Associate in Science

Minimum of 62 credit hours
If you are organized and analytical and interested in playing a role in company management, a career in Management Information Systems (MIS) could be right for you. MIS is a planned system of collecting, processing, storing and giving out data in the form of information needed to carry out the functions of a company’s management team. It involves analyzing computer-stored data relating to employees, business documents, technologies and procedures and using that data to aid in business decision-making processes. This career field is made up of a unique blend of computer system and business knowledge. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of computer and information systems managers is expected to grow faster than average through the year 2016. OCCC provides a strong foundation in management information systems with excellent transfer to the University of Oklahoma and other four-year colleges and universities.
