MS MIS Degree
MS in Management Information Systems
PLAN OF STUDY: All students should contact a Graduate Advisor in their first month of admission to complete a Plan of Study (a listing of all courses planned for the degree and the semester in which each course will be taken). If you are going to deviate from the approved plan of study (i.e. change courses or semesters), request approval from your Graduate Advisor prior to registration. Changes to the official plan of study must go through the approval process or graduation may be delayed. Students can enroll in UNO courses online at mavlink.unomaha.edu. It is highly recommended that out-of-town and international students enroll in courses before coming to Omaha, after consulting with an advisor.
The Graduate Advisors are Leslie Planos and Vanessa Hatfield-Reeker and current students can schedule appointments at mavtrack.unomaha.edu. New and prospective students can call the College of IS&T at 402.554.3819 to schedule appointments.
A complete description of the MIS program can be found in the course catalog.
Foundation courses ensure that all students in the MS MIS program have a strong foundation on which to build the rest of the program. These courses not only provide essential prerequisite knowledge and skills for other courses in the program, but they also contain a distinct body of knowledge that is an important part of the MIS professional’s education.
