MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS
 

Division of Business & Economics
Doug Gambrall, Ph.D., Chair

Students must earn a cumulative average of 2.00 or better in all L.ACC, L.BUS, and L.CIT courses and complete a minimum of 12 credits of upper level courses in their major (beyond core and supporting) at Loras College, including the capstone course.

Please Note:
Students must get PRIOR written permission to transfer in credit once they have matriculated at Loras. Students wishing to take a summer school class on another campus must get written permission from the Chair BEFORE taking the class. If a student has taken courses on other campuses and then transfers to Loras the Division chairperson may make a determination of those transfer credits.

Internships cannot be used to fulfill electives for any major or minor in this Division.

Students should complete their major’s math requirement (L.MAT-113: College Algebra or L.MAT-117 Pre-Calculus or above) by the end of their sophomore year. Since students who are double majoring within the Business Division will not be taking L.BUS-490 more than once, they need to complete an additional upper level course in either major to replace the second capstone course.

Requirements for the major in Management Information Systems (B.S.):
A minimum GPA of 2.00 in all CIT, ACC, and BUS courses is required.
