The Master of Information Systems Management (MISM) degree is designed for students seeking professional careers in information systems. The MISM blends information systems theory with a "hands-on" approach to learning information systems design and implementation skills. Management topics are particularly emphasized.
The MISM degree features a newly revised curriculum allowing students to develop a foundation of key ISys topics including management and strategy, people and organizations, IT architecture, and systems development.
Additionally, twelve hours of elective courses are required, giving students the flexibility to further study information systems and/or management topics of their choice. All MISM classes contain the underpinning themes of ethics, communication, professionalism, team dynamics, controls, risk management, project management, flexibility, and adaptability.
The MISM program has a five-year integrated option for BYU students in the Bachelor of Information Systems program, as well as an option for students who have already completed a bachelor's degree. The completion time for students with a bachelor's degree is dependent on their undergraduate major and the amount of prior information technology training.
