What you will learn in this program
Management information systems scholars ask questions such as: How can technology improve a process? What maintenance will a product require? Who should be on the project team?
Management Information Systems examines the use, management, and impact of information technologies on individuals, organizations, industries, the economy and society. You'll combine industry knowledge, practical applications, and academic principles to examine new technologies and understand their impact on the business environment. You'll complete formal presentations, group projects and various case studies during the course of your degree.
As a graduate of the Management Information Systems program, you'll be prepared for global career opportunities in the areas of marketing, finance, accounting, human resources, and more. A degree in commerce can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.
Courses you'll take:
Data Management and Business Analytics, Introduction to Business Analytics, Introduction to Business Skills, Principles of Macroeconomics, Principles of Microeconomics

The information systems concentration at the Haskayne School of Business offers students a unique opportunity to study a blend of traditional management practice and theory with technical information systems topics, such as database management and systems design. I transferred to Haskayne from computer science, as it expanded my scope of study to include bigger organizational implications. My favourite part of the program was having the opportunity to work with a local non-profit organization to redesign its internal systems.
