The Doctor of Philosophy in Management – Management Information Systems from University of Arizona is rigorous with an aim to train and prepare students to be critical and creative independent thinkers. An MIS Ph.D. gives students the ability to perform critical analysis of existing work, and to undertake research studies to advance academic understanding in the MIS field in the course of their Ph.D. studies and in their subsequent career.
The Ph.D. degree in Management with a major in Management Information Systems (MIS) is designed to prepare students for teaching and research careers involving the design, analysis, implementation and operation of computer-based information systems and other associated organizational and economic issues.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
