Management Information Systems and Analytics (MISA)
The option in Management Information Systems and Analytics is a bridge between business and information technology (IT) and provides you an understanding of the use of IT to support, streamline, and improve organizational (business, government, non-profit) processes. It enables you to develop core competencies and skill sets in information systems and analytics, exposing you to strategic issues in technology management and best practices for planning, designing, and implementing IT solutions to enhance organizational performance.
The courses are organized in in four (4) layers:
1. Basics in coding - ITI 1120 Introduction to Computing I

3. Systems analysis and design - ADM 3379 Systems Analysis, Development, and Performance
4. Implementation of IS solutions - ADM 3378 Emerging Topics in Management Information Systems
The MISA option is designed in such a way that students have to take at least one course from each layer, and with the help of elective courses, they can choose to strengthen one of the layers. This option also has one mandatory course (ADM 4377 Digital Enterprise Systems and Strategies) and one elective course (ADM 4379 Management and Implementation of Web Technologies in Organizations) that cover all layers.
