Management Information Systems (MIS)

The field of management information systems (MIS) is the study of information and its impact on the individual, the organization, and society.

Also, it is systems that create, process, store, and retrieve information.

Quite often, when we think about information systems we think of computers. Although computers are at the heart of today’s information systems, a number of important social, organizational, behavioral, and ethical issues also surround the study of information systems.
