Each new and emerging technology impacts upon the evolution of global business to a greater or lesser extent. One only needs to consider briefly the impact of the internet to realize the importance of recognising and understanding the value of information technology (IT) or management information systems (MIS).
The future of business is undoubtably technology-focused and MBA programs specializing in IT or MIS look to create students who are both highly technology literate with strong business management skills.
Information systems are essential to the well-being and success of modern business both big and small and such systems are usually at the heart of most business functions operationally.
Technology managers are well positioned to develop and evolve such systems to produce a competitive edge in the rapidly evolving global marketplace - recognising opportunities, implementation and appraisal of technology systems are all highly sought-after skills and when added with a sound business management background comprised of core MBA modules, makes for a very powerful outcome and one highly prized by employers.
Typical IT/MIS modules may cover:
Decision support systems
Executive information systems
Supply chain management
