Data and information are now some of the world's most important assets—and so are the people who can manage them

As an adult student in our undergraduate Management Information Systems program, you can expect the same individualized attention from faculty and academic and career advisors as you would in a more traditional setting. You’ll work one-on-one with an advisor who will help you stay on track and make sure you’re taking the correct courses, with your career goals front and center.

Our management information systems degree blends the best of business and data management skills necessary to thrive in today’s high-tech world. The growing, overlapping capabilities in both organizational and technological structures has increased the need for companies to hire knowledgeable leaders who understand how multi-dimensional information streams impact everyday business processes.

You’ll graduate prepared to work in a variety of growing and emerging IT positions—like data analysis, business intelligence or cyber security—with the professional communication skills and administrative background to advance quickly.

Tuition Costs

We're committed to making sure our graduate programs are accessible and affordable for all students.

Financial Aid

Students in this program are eligible for federal financial aid, and we allow an interest-free grace period for students receiving employer reimbursement. 

Transfer Your Credits

We accept transfer credits from other accredited institutions. Transcripts are evaluated to determine how many credits will transfer, as well as how a student’s former coursework meets Simpson’s degree requirements.

Take Advantage of Every Opportunity

Save on Tuition
We value the work you've already done and think it should count toward your degree. If you’re at least 25 years of age and classified as a freshman or sophomore at Simpson, you can submit a Life Experience Portfolio during the admissions process. The LEP can earn up to 24 credits, which you can use to meet the 150-hour requirement for CPA exam eligibility.

Employer Reimbursement Cuts Interest Costs
Many employers reimburse their employees’ tuition after a class has been completed, and we offer the chance to delay payment until 45 days after the term ends. You won’t have to pay until after the course ends.

We're Transfer Friendly 
During the application process, you'll submit transcripts of previous undergraduate work from other accredited institutions if applicable. Transcripts are then evaluated to determine how many credits will transfer, as well as how your former coursework meets Simpson’s degree requirements.
