With strong technical skills and an understanding of organizations and business, Management Information Systems majors have many opportunities for employment. Many begin as entry-level programmers in large businesses and advance to higher level systems analysis, design, and management positions. Others work as consultants to small businesses or start businesses of their own. Business and computing skills also provide an excellent starting point for graduate work in many fields.
Graduates in this field enjoy excellent placement at some of the highest starting salaries of any business major. Department of Labor projections indicate this trend will continue into the next century, as organizations rely more and more heavily on knowledge workers and strategic information systems.
