Are you obsessed with the latest technology and constantly looking for the newest gadgets? Do you wonder if someone will pay you to explore new technologies and their impact? 

Management information systems (MIS) truly lies at the intersection of technology and business, and MIS professionals look at how technology and people relate within an organization. Their positions play a strategic role, especially as technology streamlines much of what we do. They oversee systems and databases, develop new applications, and protect their companies from cyber attacks and other potential risks.
