Management Information Systems
Intensive competition today has given birth to a number of changes and transformations in national and international markets. As a result of the changes and developments in foreign and domestic markets, the businesses moving to globalization are faced by the fact that all their working procedures are regulated according to this new competitive model. In today’s world in which there is an intensive competition, one of the most effective competition tools is to install information and communication technologies and to include these technologies in the process of making a decision and doing business. Besides the planning and applying of the information systems, there is another point of importance, which is the effective management of these systems. This is because information and communication technologies are constantly renewed and updated and this requires following these developments and adding them to the existing ones.
Information technology-based systems which exist in all fields and circles of life affect a lot of elements and points, too. Among them are trade, marketing, management and sales of goods and services. There has appeared a need for the Department of Management Information Systems so as to take a thorough look at the issue, gathering information from different aspects supporting the decision-making process at the management. The purpose of the Department of Management Information Systems is to train individuals who can develop the information systems at businesses and who have the knowledge and experience of information and business to manage a business.
