About the Department of Operations and Management Information Systems
There is no doubt that information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become a significant factor for achieving organizational efficiency and effectiveness. This has created a very high, global demand for professionals with the expertise to align ICTs with business strategies to achieve corporate objectives. Academics are also in high demand to research into ICT design, development and implementation in both the private and the public sector. With this underpinning its mission, the Department of Operations & Management Information Systems (OMIS) is founded on the interaction between the ICT and Management disciplines.
OMIS is essentially a post-graduate Department, offering courses in PhD Information Systems, MBA in Management Information Systems, MPhil in Management Information Systems and MPhil in Operations Management. Faculty research interests cut across ICT and management: e-business, e-government, e-health, e-banking, ICT for Development and Operations Management.
