Management Information Systems 
In response to the requirements of the labor market and due to the urgent need for qualified and trained cadres in the field of management information systems (MIS) for various businesses, the undergraduate degree in management information systems was started in the academic year 2003/2004 and an independent department for MIS in the faculty of business was established in the academic year 2004/2005. The department provides an integrated study plan (132 credit hours) that includes courses in a variety of relevant subject-specific disciplines which are offered to MIS as well as to other faculty students according to their study plans. The department prepares distinguished graduates that keep abreast of developments in the field of technology and also skilled in maintaining the different types of information systems in organizations. The study plan was carefully designed to provide graduates with the necessary technical and managerial knowledge that is required to help them analyze, design, develop as well as apply and manage information systems. MIS graduates combine both the managerial and technical backgrounds necessary to enable them utilize the appropriate techniques in the various areas of business management for problem solving. The department has three modern computer labs, which are used in teaching programming languages, databases, business modeling and simulation, electronic communications and networks, applications of information technology tools, office automation systems, and the practical modules of other offered courses.
