Hello Everyone,

This post was suggested by one of the followers of this blog, Kuldeep. So this post will contain all the information regarding Masters in Management Information Systems. Students have lots of queries regarding this field and sometimes they get confused whether to take it or choose another field. So I will try to answer some of the common queries related to Management Information Systems or also known as MIS.

What is MS in Management Information Systems (MIS)?

This is one of the unique courses where you will see a blend of Management and Technical field all in one course. This course will contain technical subjects and also subjects related to management. Normally there is a heavy technical component in the coursework, but the program also provides students with the broad perspective needed to advance in their managerial careers. So to make it simple its a combination of Management and Technical courses.

What is the Curriculum Of MIS? 

The Curriculum of MIS may vary from one University to another, but following curriculum is followed in most of the Universities: –

  • System Analysis and Design.
  • Database Management.
  • Business Intelligence Applications.
  •  E-Commerce and Internet based Applications.
  • Enterprise Information Systems.
  • Management Of IS Function.
  • Data Warehousing.
  • Business Process Design.
  • Information Security And Compliance.
  • Managing Distributed Architectures.
  • Information Systems Strategy and Governance.
  • Project Management.
  • Project Development Seminars.

So as you can see from the Curriculum, there is a blend of Technical and Management Subjects.

Do I require Experience to join MS in MIS?

Some Universities suggest that students should have some amount of experience before applying for this program. But Experience is not compulsory. If you do not have an experience you will be told to do certain extra courses apart from the Curriculum. So you can apply to this program even though you don’t have an experience.

Do I need to be from an IT Background to join this Course?

Most of the Universities just require the student to have completed their Under Graduation from a University. Which means you can apply for this course no matter which Field you are from. There might be some extra courses that you may have to complete once you join the University.

What are the Career Opportunities/ Career Paths for MS in MIS?

In recent years MS in MIS course has had a real boom in the IT Industry. Students not only have technical knowledge but has managerial skills too. The Career Paths for MS in MIS are as follows: –

  • Project Manager.
  •  E-Commerce Developer.
  • System Analyst and Designer.
  • Network and Security Administrator.
  • Business Intelligence Analyst.
  • IT Manager.
  • CIO.
  • Database Architect.

I have scored GRE- 295 and IELTS – 6.0.I know my scores are not good enough but I don’t have enough time to retake them. I have observed that for MIS course experience is considered to be the main criteria in application process and scores are not the major preferences though minimum eligible scores are actually required based on the Universities requirements. Is this applicable most of the times? I’m planning for fall 2014. Can I apply to decent Universities with this scores and experience or is it mandatory to retake my exams?? I’m in a big confused state. Please let me know your suggestions regarding this.
    Thanks in Advance.

  24. I am actually doing computer engineering and currently I am in the third year!

    I am really interested in the masters program offered by american universities. But, I’m still pretty uncertain about my field.

    Engineering was the first time I took up computers. I always avoided it in school and junior college. I ended up taking computer as I was getting the college I really really wanted. With no computer background I started my engineering and surprisingly I have done pretty decent. I have secured distinction in both years of engineering till now. But, still coding does not excite me. Considering, I knew nothing about programming to clearing hardcore coding subjects with good marks. I think I can code. But as a job of a developer? I’m not sure

    So I am interested in Databases. But people in India have told me MIS is not as esteemed as CS. This is confusing me even more. I intend to do an MBA degree too. BUT, in case, that does not happen I want my job to be good enough after masters. You would know best about the job scenarios there and what each CS or MIS graduate ends up doing for a living. I have been brainwashed by people saying MIS is taken up by people with lesser marks just for the sake of an ms degree, or MIS is like a compensation for people who can,t get into MBA. Please help me out.

    PS- I’m not planning to work after completing my engineering. I want to leave for masters immediately. So, no work experience.

      • Hello

    I did mechanical engineering from one of top colleges in India.Then I got a job in production which is a kind of management job.But I dont have interest in production or mechanical.And I am more inclined towards the IT industry.I have very few programming skills. So I was thinking of doing masters in information systems(MIS)
    Is it a good idea?Can I switch my major from mechanical to MIS.Are there good job prospects if I do so?

  48. Hai Shrinivas Raghav,

    My name is Raghava

    Your blog is really great and very useful information you posted.
    So I thought you could help me out
    I done my B.Tech from ECE as a may 2015 passed out from SRM University, Chennai and have a CGPA of 7.15 and right now working in IBM.
    I am planning or intake fall 2016 for MIS in USA.
    So I had my GRE and TOEFL with 301 and 87.
    Its been five months I joined IBM and so by the time I leave it will be 1 year.
    So can you suggest me whether I will be getting good Universities ?? and
    I wanted to know about this STEM extension program exactly because I got to know MIS is not provided with STEM. So I was confuse like in that case how good that will be to choose MIS because we will not be having enough time to get jobs only within a year.
    As I noticed your reply to a previous question you said MIS is a STEM course.
    So can you help me to know the universities that have MIS as a STEM course.
    Please help me let know.

  76. Hi Raghav,
    I read your blog. It is very good and also you are doing a great job helping us.
    I had some queries regarding MIS course.
    My GRE score is 311 (166-Q 145-V) and I am interested in coding but not too much and also I have a B.E in EEE. So I wanted to ask if MIS will be the perfect fit for me. Since I don’t have any professional coding experience however I have done coding in VBA in my organisation. Presently I am working in a MNC as a system analyst and have a workex of 1+ year.
    If yes, then can you suggest me some universities which I can apply too.
    Also how much minimum score I need to get in TOEFL..
