What is the focus of the Management Information System (MIS) program?
Since the beginning of the Information Revolution, companies have been actively trying to use technology in their workflow. Nowadays they widely use the Internet for a lot of different purposes – from simple communication through email or videoconferencing, to managing customer information or financial modeling through complex software. Indeed, the information systems help businesses build better marketing strategies, improve customer experiences, and quickly obtain feedback. All these things increase the overall competitiveness of the companies and make information technology a highly important field.
MIS helps businesses find suitable digital solutions in order to:
Make the buying process easier for customers
Advertise new products in a more efficient way
Build trust with customers and partners
Improve company decision making
Tackle competition more effectively
Decision making based on data (business intelligence)
Solve everyday constraints faster and more easily
An information system collects, processes, stores, analyzes and delivers information for a specific purpose. In short, it gets the right information to the right people, at the right time, in the right amount, and in the right format. Currently, MIS specialists are in very high demand, as they help companies find solutions that combine elements of management, organization, and technology.
The MIS program at ParagonIU explores the ways to make management more effective through using information systems, covering issues of leadership, strategy, and management behavior. It teaches how to deal with problems of computer hardware, software, data management, and networking/telecommunications technologies. Additionally, it covers the topics of organizational hierarchy, functional specialization, business processes, culture, and political interest groups.
