Management Information Systems Certificate of Graduate Study

The Management of Information Systems Certificate of Graduate Study (COGS) will enhance a student’s preparedness to assume jobs in a world of rapidly changing technology by preparing them to develop business solutions through the use of information and technology resources. Students will be experienced in dealing with technological issues, understand the role of humans in developing technology-based solutions, and have demonstrated ability to manage technology-related projects. Students may also choose to begin earning their MBA by first completing the COGS in MIS. The certificate of graduate study is also ideal for those who have not yet taken the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) as GMAT scores are not a requirement for admission to the certificate program. Students who wish to later pursue a Rohrer College of Business MBA may have all COGS credits transferred into the MBA program.
