MS in MIS Program

Spears School of Business at Oklahoma State University

Academic Program

The MS in MIS program facilitates opportunities for professional growth, leadership, friendship and personal interactions with faculty members and industry professionals. Students gain practical experience by applying the theoretical knowledge acquired in classrooms to real-world projects. This program exposes members to hands-on professional experience, which serves as a great advantage in the competitive job market.

The MIS program does not require prospective students to have a background or a degree in business. The 33-34 hour program includes a 22-hour common core of courses (21-hour core for part-time students) and a 12-hour option in Data Science or Application Development. All courses are available through the online learning option unless otherwise noted.

Roll-outs of the courses are available toward the bottom of the page for OSU-Stillwater, OSU-Tulsa and Distance Learning.
