Bachelor of Management Information Systems
 
Management Information Systems (MIS) is an applied discipline that studies the processes of the creation, operation, and business contexts and consequences of management systems that manipulate information. The creation and operation of such systems requires the sub-processes of systems analysis, design, development and management which are bracketed at the beginning by business context and at completion by business consequences.

Education in information systems has traditionally dealt with building competencies in systems analysis, design and management, which has in the past separated it from Computer Science, and Software Engineering in particular, which concentrate on computer program development.

However more recently it is the foregrounding of the brackets around the technical competencies, along with their expansion into new technologies, that is, business context and consequences of information systems that is a significant differentiator of the Management Information Systems discipline from allied disciplines of Software Engineering, Computer Science and Computer Engineering.
