Our department is one of six disciplinary departments in the Fogelman College of Business and Economics at The University of Memphis, which is the only business college in the Memphis area that is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Our department offers both undergraduate and graduate education in information systems management and includes a vibrant doctoral program and a large masters program with a distinctly international student body reflecting the global orientation of modern information infrastructures and applications.

The department has about seventeen faculty members specializing in various strategic, technical, managerial and organizational aspects of business information systems and with all sharing the dominant "MIS" theoretical innovation management paradigm. These faculty members are intensively engaged in researching both applied and theoretical phenomenon pertaining to the development, implementation and management of new and established information technology innovations in organizations. This research has yielded a constant stream of publications in the top research journals in our field and has also created significant value for our strategic partners in business and industry. Faculty in the department serve as Associate Editor and Senior Editor for some of the top journals. 

The department is home to a major interdisciplinary research based Systems Testing Excellence Program which is located in the FedEx Institute of Technology. This program has brought together researchers from information systems, computer science and computer engineering to collaborate on a research program designed to position the university as a leader in the science of systems testing. It also serves as the research and training partner for the Global Testing Center of Excellence of FedEx Corporation. In addition to a strong MSBA degree program, the department offers three graduate certificate programs in Business Information Assurance, Software Testing, and Project Management. The department is fortunate to have a very active Advisory Council that includes senior IT professionals.

As a department, we are driven by a strong desire to be strategically "engaged" with all our internal and external stakeholders while nurturing a vibrant intellectual environment that facilitates deep insight and critical discourse of leading-edge ideas pertaining to technology innovation and information management.
