Gain an in-depth understanding of how data and technology work together to drive the business world. The information systems program will give you the tools needed to develop, use, and manage computer-based systems.
Our program provides training in three broad areas:
Northwestern's small classes allow students to engage directly with faculty. Our business classes visit and have guest speakers from Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurial start-ups, and nonprofits. Students experience a variety of business structures and organizations.
Students intern at companies like Target, Allina, and Wells Fargo to gain real-world experience. 100 percent of our information systems graduates found a job within three months of graduation.
Many classes use case studies to highlight real-world application of business principles. Our students have produced capstone projects for large, local organizations. Students develop software and improve design systems solutions. A few of the projects have been for companies like Medtronic, Carlson, Cold Stone Creamery, Delta Airlines, Minnesota Department of Health, Thrivent Financial, and Valspar Paints.
You will learn to think critically, solve complex problems, and communicate effectively.

My roommate convinced me to take Principles of Management Information Systems despite never having an interest in coding or computers for the most part. It just so happened that I loved that class and eventually changed my major to Business Management Information Systems by the next semester.
