Chair's Welcome

It is my pleasure, and on behalf of the entire Department of MIS, to welcome you to the Website of the Department of Management Information Systems at the University of Sharjah. The Department offers a 123-credit-hour Bachelor of Science degree program that is designed to provide a well-balanced structure of theory and practice, giving the students the opportunity to develop IT skills through hands-on problem solving and laboratory practice. The aim of the department's teaching program is to graduate professionals who are well prepared to start a successful career developing, maintaining, and managing business information systems.

The Management Information Systems (MIS) major integrates a study of information technology (IT) with a study of business to equip students with a solid foundation in business and management as it prepares them as IT professionals who will be responsible for developing and managing business information systems. MIS is a fast-track career or profession. It is one of the most interesting, exciting, dynamic, and challenging fields. MIS offers the opportunity where your talent, creativity, and ingenuity can be put work. It offers a wide-range of options for sub-specializations and careers—including systems analyst/designer, application developer, database developer, project manager, web developer, and network specialist, among others.

The Department faculty consists of a group of faculty members who are highly qualified, dedicated, and committed individuals who pursue excellence in their teaching, research, and professional responsibilities. I sincerely hope that your learning and educational experiences here at the University of Sharjah will be challenging, enjoyable, and rewarding, and will adequately prepare you for a life-long learning and professional development.
