Management Information Systems Major, Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BAB)
The major in Management Information Systems is oriented toward developing specialists who can design, implement and manage business information systems. Upon completion, the student should be able to understand both the technical aspects of these systems and the complexities of their management. Depending upon the electives chosen, the student may prepare for entry-level positions in either the technical areas of data processing or in staff support roles in the various functional areas of business.
- students must be formally admitted to the Business Undergraduate Program or officially declared as a minor before enrolling in business classes in the major (see Business Administration Course Enrollment Policies for more information).
- ECON 200 and ECON 201 are considered supporting courses and may be used to fulfill BACRs as well as requirements for the Business Administration degree; however, these courses are not counted twice toward the total of 180 credits for graduation.
Grade Requirements for Graduation: a minimum grade ≥C in each course required for the major and a minimum GPA ≥2.5 for all upper division Business Administration core courses as well as required and elective courses taken to fulfill requirements for the major area.

Use the Catalog Archives to determine two important catalog years.
SOAR calculates based on these two catalog years.
- The catalog in effect at the student's first term of current matriculation is used to determine BACR (Breadth Area Credit Requirements) and UGR (Undergraduate Graduation Requirements).
- The catalog in effect at the time the student declares a major or minor is used to determine the program requirements.
