Advanced Tools and Technologies in the School of Business Administration

While the MIS program prepares its graduates for long-term career success by developing a sound base of theoretical knowledge about systems in organizations, the program also utilizes the latest tools and technologies to help ensure the successful launch of our students' careers. Because modern organizations demand the ability to hit the ground running, the MIS program extends its theoretical foundation by incorporating the following languages and software development tools/environments:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio.NET (C++, C#, Visual Basic)

  • Web Programming: Java, Javascript, VBscript, ASP, ASP.NET, XML/XSL/CSS, PHP, Perl, Python

  • Database: Oracle, MS Access, SQL Server

  • Operating Systems: Windows 7, 8.1, Unix

  • Other programming languages: C, Fortran, Cobol

The department is a participating member of the MSDN Academic Alliance. This strategic partnership with Microsoft allows all faculty members and students to install and use the latest development technologies.
