Employers and students spoke. Lakeland listened.
Lakeland University now offers a management information systems (MIS) degree, which combines expertise in business administration and computer science.
"The jobs that involve both business administration and information technology are very much in demand by companies and organizations right now," said Scott Niederjohn, Charlotte and Walter Kohler Professor of Economics and Business and Dean of Lakeland's J. Garland Schilcutt School of Business and Entrepreneurship. "Students have also been asking us about this type of degree."
Graduates with an MIS degree will be extremely marketable, because they will be well-versed in project management, digital data analysis and website development, among many other modern business world skills.
