MIS Graduate Certificate Program Begins

Maharishi University of Management launched the Online Graduate Certificate program in Management Information Systems (MIS) in September 2013. The program is targeted at developing IT managers and IT executives, and is also useful for anyone interested in understanding the business use of IT. The next entry in this program is in January 2014. Admissions are open. You can learn more about the program at mum.edu/MISCertificate and apply online.

Organizations need people who understand how to structure their investments in Information Technology effectively, and generate a good return on their investments. Every employee and business person also needs to understand how IT can help make their organizations more productive and competitive.

This 18-credit program is designed for working professionals who can spend 6-8 hours per week, and do one 4-credit course per semester. The completely online program offers a flexible mix of managerial and technical courses to round out the students' development in the MIS field. There is no need to leave one's job or home to complete this online program.

There are seven students in the group that joined this Online MIS program last September. These students have experience in IT programming, IT education, IT management, financial management, library management, program management, forensic analysis, and others. Students are currently taking their first course on Information Systems Foundations. "I really love the MIS program. It enables me to create a balance between my technical skills and my knowledge of business functions and processes," says one student based in Iowa. "I am really enjoying and learning from this program," says another student based in Tennessee. Another student who is a network administrator said, "The online MIS program has been a boon. I am able to pursue graduate courses without conflict with my family and work responsibilities. I am learning a lot, and the new knowledge is spilling into my day-to-day activities at work."

As the home of Consciousness-BasedSM education, MUM offers a balance of domain knowledge and the development of consciousness, which enhances the student's ability to achieve more with less stress. The 18-credit program includes a 2-credit course on the Science of Creative Intelligence, including the practice of the Transcendental Meditation® technique to accelerate the development of consciousness.

The next entry into the program is in January 2014. Admissions are open. You can learn more about the program at mum.edu/MISCertificate and apply online.
