Information Systems

Redirected from Management information systems

Information Systems, also Management Information Systems (MIS) is the formal study of the information systems within an organization. WordNet described an information system as a system consisting of the network of all communication channels used within an organization.

The area of study should not be confused with Computer Science which is more theoretical and mathematical in nature or with Computer Engineering which is more engineering.

The study of Information Systems is usually a commerce and business administration[?] discipline, and frequently involves software development, but also distinguishes itself by concentrating on the integration of computer systems with the aims of the organization.

Some prestigious programs in Information systems: MISM (http://www.mism.cmu.edu), Carnegie Mellon
