MSMIS Program Notes:
1) It is strongly suggested that MMIS 501 and then MMIS 531 be the first two courses a student takes in their degree program. Many other classes build on this knowledge.
2) Students in the IS Project Management specialization must take MMIS 531 prior to taking any PMGT courses. MMIS 531 will be considered equivalent to the needed pre-requisite(s) for PMGT courses in the IS Project Management specialization.
