In the global Information Age, success, for individuals and for companies, requires the ability to manage information effectively. IS can only be effectively designed and implemented when understood in the context of the individual user, the work group, the organization and society. Therefore, the study of MIS combines a focus on technology with a focus on organizational systems within the business context. Not only do students develop technical and problem-solving skills that are in high demand by employers, they learn to identify how IT can best be used within a business organization.
