The City College MIS program is primarily intended for working professionals with background in engineering or science who wish to develop their careers in information management. Leveraging its position in the Grove School of Engineering, the MIS program teaches concepts of business software and systems management, economics and finance, and quantitative management skills.
The program is offered in the evening, and is designed so that students with full-time employment can complete it in less than two years. It presents an affordable package featuring state of the art coursework in business-critical areas, culminating in an intensive independent project in the final semester. The project area is in an area of specialization of interest to the student, chosen in consultation with the program faculty. Initial choices include Medical Informatics, Business Process Engineering and Financial Computing.
