WPI’s distinctive undergraduate education experience combines rigorous theory with hands-on application. Throughout your four years, you’ll apply your knowledge in innovative ways to solve significant societal and business problems in a variety of areas, including decision support systems and business-to- business and consumer e-commerce applications.
At the intersection of business and technology, the WPI Management Information Systems (MIS) program in the Business School immerses students in projects and coursework that delve into business applications and advanced information technologies. You’ll be prepared to use computer technology to solve problems and meet the ever-changing needs of business, such as forecasting sales and analyzing trends, optimizing production, selecting and installing hardware and software, and presenting information in a way that managers can make the most effective use of it.
As a management information systems major, you’ll take courses in both management and computer science. You’ll complete basic introductory courses in math, calculus, statistics, science, and computer science as well as the Management core courses and six technical courses.
Whether it’s real-world work experience through a co-op or internship, earning a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in four or five years through the BS/MS program, or integrating your coursework with your extracurricular interests through Major and a Mission, there are many ways you can make the most out of your time at WPI.
