The Management Information Systems program combines Business Management and Information Systems curricula. This merging of business and technical coursework gives students the necessary technical and communications skills as they are applied within the business environment, which offers a stronger background and degree of preparation for the workforce. This curriculum combines general education, business and computer courses that are normally taken as a part of a bachelor’s degree program at a four-year school. Courses in this program will transfer to four-year schools in the Management Information Systems and/or computer-related degree programs.

After completing this degree, graduates may then choose to continue their education through a bachelor’s degree program in Management Information Systems at Central Connecticut State University or other state universities through articulation agreements.
