Outstanding Teaching, Superior Research
The Department of Management Science and Information Systems (MSIS) understands that
companies throughout the world require professionals with both the technical and managerial
expertise necessary to thrive in an information-driven economy. For years, the Spears
School of Business has proudly produced professionals who have a highly developed
set of business skills and the depth of knowledge to implement complex information
systems—and keep them up and running. The Department's substantial growth has been
fueled not only by the emergence of information technology as a fundamental cornerstone
of business education, but also from the personal talents of dedicated faculty. The
MSIS Department is blessed with outstanding nationally recognized scholars and committed,
innovative instructors, all with a passion for research and classroom excellence.
Many of the MSIS faculty has a solid private sector background that exemplifies the
department's practical yet leading-edge perspective.
