The Management Information Systems associate degree program is offered to students who would like to continue their studies at another college or university to earn a bachelor’s degree. This program requires a mixture of business, and technology courses, which students would normally take the first two years at a baccalaureate institution. Students planning to transfer should consult a counselor or faculty advisor about their choice of electives before selecting specific courses.
