Attend class whenever it fits your life, day or night because our online classroom is available 24/7/365. Your academic counselor will help schedule your courses for a Master of Information Systems.
An information system is a way for organizations, such as companies and departments of the government, to collect, process, store and distribute information, often in the form of a shared database or application. The study of information systems typically emphasizes the technology and equipment used for information systems, such as computers, software and networking devices.
A Master of Information Systems degree (MIS) can help prepare you for many different roles, including IT manager, IT director, information systems manager and information systems director.
Both fields deal with information, but the key difference lies in their focus. Information technology involves the design, implementation, maintenance or support of the technology components behind a system. These include databases, networks, hardware, software and other tools.
At University of Phoenix, we offer two great ways to get your Master of Information Systems (MIS) degree. Each of them teaches 36 important skills, but they come in two different formats: traditional and competency-based.
A traditional Master of Information Systems degree will likely appeal to you if you prefer more faculty instruction and taking one course at a time. A competency-based Master of Information Systems (MIS-CB) program could be a better fit if you already have IT experience and prefer more independence, faculty mentorship and taking multiple courses at once.
For starters, University of Phoenix offers career services not only to current students but to all graduates for life! Visit this page for all the details.
Additionally, our program offers exceptional flexibility. We understand that life happens. Some students have outside jobs, families to take care of or cannot commute. Learn how we can help with time management to take the stress off your shoulders.
Besides our flexibility with 1 class at a time, 6 weeks long with 24/7 access, our faculty actually work in the Information Systems field and can provide insight.
Best of all, former college students can earn their degrees without completely starting over in their coursework. Learn more about our cost-savings programs.
