We generally offer MIS and OM courses each Fall and Spring semester, and very few in the summer, so please work with your advisor and plan accordingly. All courses are scheduled on Boca Raton campus. Sometimes courses may be scheduled online or on the Davie campus, but it cannot be guaranteed. You can view the schedule of courses on the FAU web site - choose the semester you are interested in, College of Business, Information Technology and Operations Management as the department, undergraduate level. To view courses available online, select Online BBA as the department.
Because very few MIS major courses are offered during the summer, this is the perfect time to find an internship. Not only will you gain experience and potentially a lead to a permanent position with the company, but you may also be able to earn course credit in ISM 4940.
