Management Information Systems Faculty

 

Shaping the future of IT.

Our faculty are world-renowned. They created the first information systems curriculum in the 1970s, and they continue to develop technologies and techniques that drive progress. They write the textbooks, but they also teach methods so new they don’t yet appear in books. They are recognized as leaders in the field in teaching, research, and publishing.

While many schools have faculty with similar specializations, the faculty in the MIS department at the University of Arizona are diverse. They work in a broad range of topics and methods, with new capabilities added frequently.
