Position Summary:

The Department of Management Information Systems, Operation & Supply Chain Management, and Business Analytics  offers undergraduate majors and minors in MIS, Business Analytics, and Operations and Supply Management (OSC) as well as a master’s degree in Business Analytics. We also offer MBA certificates in Business Analytics, Business Intelligence, Business Systems Development, Cyber Security Management, and Project Management, and additional undergraduate minors in Business Analytics, Business Intelligence, and Cyber Security Management. The Department also supports business undergraduates and graduate students with courses in MIS, OSC, Business Analytics, and Statistics. Core MIS major requirements include systems analysis and design, project management, database management, and application development. A distinctive feature of the undergraduate MIS major is a two semester, applied capstone sequence wherein students develop useful IS solutions for local business organizations. The curriculum is designed to facilitate double majors. Historically, our graduates have been very well placed in the job market in large and small organizations, both in the Dayton region and nationally.

The Department faculty are well known for their research, teaching, and professional service. Faculty accomplishments include publishing numerous articles in major academic journals and serving in editorial positions of leading academic journals and as key officers in major professional organizations. An MIS Advisory Board, composed of senior MIS executives from local and national organizations, regularly interacts with the Department faculty and students and provides guidance in areas such as curriculum development, research activities, and student employment. The MIS Advisory Board is also a valuable source of student projects and guest speakers in courses. An MIS Distinguished Speaker series invites at least one highly-accomplished scholar in the MIS arena to visit the Department every year. The Department has a similar advisory board and speaker series in Operations Management.
