Metropolitan State University offers graduate certificate programs designed to meet the rapidly-evolving needs of information systems and business professionals in the field of management information systems (MIS).

The Generalist Certificate is designed to give a thorough overview in current basic areas of MIS. The certificate consists of five courses, which may be used as a first step in working towards a Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Management Information Systems (MMIS) degree.

If you are a general business graduate with workplace experience in information systems or an MIS technical professional, the MIS Generalist Certificate brings you up to speed on important MIS management issues. The program helps you understand new MIS technologies and how to manage them and be aware of important new strategies for managing distributed computing environments, including Internet, intranets, extranets, VPNs and many others. You also learn project management skills that are crucial in the MIS environment and in great demand in the marketplace, and how to integrate many new MIS and management models.
