    Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Management Information Systems (MIS) major provides two specializations in one of the fastest growing fields in the country. Whether you’re interested in programming and development or cybersecurity and networking, IUP’s MIS program features a degree track for your career goals. We provide students with the choice to earn a bachelor’s degree with a concentration in either Information Systems or Information Technology.

    Every business in the world today relies on computers and information technology—not just to function and create operational efficiency and effectiveness, but also to gain a strategic and competitive advantage. MIS is at the core of an organization’s ability to make decisions and solve problems. In addition to our two bachelor’s programs, we also offer a minor in Management Information Systems.
